Melanie Amaro Records Aretha Franklin, Redding Classic For Super Bowl

X Factor winner Melanie Amaro is not only sharing her prized Super Bowl commercial with Sir Elton John this Sunday, she will also be singing “R.E.S.P.E.C.T.”

According to Pepsi, releasing a teaser for the commercial, Amaro has recorded a “contemporized version of RESPECT” to go with what is being described as a “rock-fantasy version of medieval times” themed ad.

“The 60 second commercial features Melanie Amaro performing in front of a “royal court of rock,” including Elton John’s character, the King. The ad establishes Pepsi as the brand for people who are not afraid to take a chance, raise their voice and give it their all,” reports Pepsi. “With epic Pepsi scale and a big dose of humor, the commercial ends with a twist and the tagline, “Where there’s Pepsi, There’s Music.”

The coveted Pepsi ad, following those of Mariah Carey, Ray Charles and Michael Jackson, is part of Amaro’s X Factor prize package (that and the $5 million recording contract she received with EPIC).

“Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would be starring in a Pepsi Super Bowl commercial, following in the footsteps of some of music’s biggest legends,” said Amaro. “Winning THE X FACTOR has changed my life.”

Watch for the ad when Super Bowl XLVI airs Sunday.
