Melanie Amaro SIGNS with L.A. Reid and Epic Records
The winner of the first season of the United States’ version of “The X-Factor”, Ms. Melanie Amaro of Florida has signed a $5 million deal with L.A. Reid and Epic Records. Now viewers of the show may be wondering why she didn’t sign with her mentor Simon Cowell and Syco Records?
“We all agreed that Epic would be the right fit for Melanie. L.A. made it clear that he wanted the opportunity to work with her and with his track record, you can’t say no to that.” – Simon Cowell
Cowell’s record company is known for signing Adult Contemporary and Pop acts while L.A. Reid who has worked with the likes of Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston fit Melanie’s preferred format R&B. The future R&B superstar will also be starring in a Pepsi commercial that will air during the Super Bowl which hopefully my Baltimore Ravens will be playing on February 5th on NBC. GO RAVENS and GO MELANIE!!!! Congrats.
