L.A. Reid has been working on all the pieces to begin building his legacy at Epic Records, adding several artists to his roster. He recently confirmed his latest signee; U.S. X Factor debut winner Melanie Amaro.
“I joined The X Factor to be able to discover undeniable talent such as Melanie. I am pleased that she is now signed to Epic Records because I believe we have only scratched the surface on uncovering her talent and her inevitable journey to super-stardom,” said Reid.
Amaro’s five million dollar record deal is part of her prizing from winning X Factor, in addition she will star in a Pepsi commercial during the Super Bowl.
“I am so excited to start recording my debut album for Epic under the guidance of L.A. Reid and Simon Cowell,” says Melanie. “This is a dream come true for me.”
Amaro’s debut album will be released in 2012 as she hopes to work with Mariah Carey and Ne-Yo.
