The ‘X Factor’ cutie’s Uncle tells HollywoodLife.com that he’s not at all surprised that Rachel inked a record deal with Columbia Records and is set to star in a Nickelodeon show — he only wishes her grandfather were here to see her success!
Things keep getting better for Rachel Crow. HollywoodLife.com spoke to Rachel’s Uncle Roy Shubert, who lives in her hometown of Mead, Colo., immediately after news broke that Rachel, 14, is on her way to superstardom. Roy held back tears as he gushed about his niece!
“I’m really happy for her she has worked a long time,” Roy tells us. “No we always thought she would because famous because she has lots of talent and energy.”
When we spoke to Roy, he didn’t know that Rachel had landed a starring role on a Nickelodeon show all about her!
“I think it’s great I think she would be great at it [acting],” Roy says. “I’ve never seen her act but I’m sure … she tries her best on everything she does.”
The only thing that upset Roy while speaking to us was when he talked about his brother, Rachel’s grandfather.
“Her grandfather would have been real proud,” Roy tearfully tells us. “I wish he was here and could see her because he would have been real proud of her. He passed away and he was a diabetic and had a lot of health problems. They were really close.”
Rachel is set to appear in five episode’s of Nickelodeon’s new series Fred: The Show and she is expected to work on her first CD later this year.
