Carly Rose Sonenclar Record Deal 2013

Carly Rose may not even be in high school yet, but she already has a record deal! ‘The X Factor’ runner-up revealed to how her life has changed since she wowed America with her powerful, soulful singing and signed on to a deal with Simon Cowell’s label, Syco Entertainment.

At only 14, Carly Rose Sonenclar is about to release a new cover video, will be working on a new album, and even performing at Best Buy theater! She visited’s offices to talk about how X Factor judge and mentor Britney Spears inspired and helped her plus what she has planned for her exciting future.

Carly Rose Sonenclar Talks Transition From ‘X Factor’ To 8th Grade

After coming in second to Tate Stevens on season two of The X FactorCarly headed back to eighth grade. Could you imagine?!

“It’s kind of weird! Before the show, I did singing acting, but never at this level. I was on Broadway, but it wasn’t the same. People still treated me like a normal kid. And they still treat me like a normal kid to a certain extent, but you know. When I play softball now, and I go to different schools, after the game, they’ll be asking to take my picture, which is kind of weird because I just played against them in a softball game!”

Fortunately, friends and family who know the real Carly, treat her exactly the same and she loves that.

“My close friends are the same, and the people in my grade are the same because they’ve known me for so long. In other grades, it’s a little different because they just kind of stare at me, and it’s kind of awkward!” she explained.

As for her new professional singing career, Carly Rose reveals, “basically, the first step was getting signed to Simon Cowell‘s company (Syco Entertainment) . Now from here on, it’s about finding the right team, getting in the studio, keeping my fans engaged.”

Next up, is a concert at NYC’s Best Buy theater. She’ll be hitting the stage on August 10 for a concert to support The Starlight Children’s Foundation.

Carly Talks Britney Spears: What She’s Really Like

Carly Rose says that Britney Spears was a great role model.

“She’s very sweet and kind, and kind of shy,” Carly said about her X Factor coach Britney Spears. “Some people are surprised to learn that’Britney’s shy, because she’s Britney Spears, but I mean, it’s different than when you’re on stage. She’s very humble and softspoken and very sweet.”

She relates to Britney in that respect, explaining that she too is often quiet and reserved off stage, but then lets loose when she performs — the same way Britney does. But that’s not all they have in common.

They both started as child stars, and she feels that they really connected because of that experience.

However, she also looks up to five other artists and groups: Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Ellie Goulding, Adele, and Maroon 5.

“They’re not just [singing] pop songs that sound the same as everything else,” Carly said. “I want people from all ages to kind of, think that I’m a real artist.”

Well, we do think that Carly!  Watch her full interview below, and buy tickets to see her at Best Buy theater here!

The baby, weighing about 3.5 kg had been wheeled into the OT for treatment of ventricular septal defect (hole in the heart) but on thorough investigations, doctors at MS Ramaiah Narayana Heart Centre found multiple complications like high lung pressure and pneumonia. During the surgery, the doctors found that the child suffered from a rare condition of a single coronary artery with an anomalous origin from pulmonary artery instead of an aorta, called Anomalous Single Coronary Artery from Pulmonary Artery (ASCAPA).

In addition, the calls to imprison miscreant bankers (, 19 June) seem disproportionate. They should definitely suffer punishment under the law, but our prisons are grossly overcrowded. I am sure that a convicted banker could work free for any number of charities, applying their financial skills for the good of society instead of personal monetary gain.
