Nickelodeon has signed 14-year-old singing sensation, the perky and talented Rachel Crow, to an overall talent deal. As part of the new pact, Nickelodeon is developing a comedy series for Crow, who is best known for her buzz-worthy performances on Fox's singing competition series X Factor.
In addition, Crow has been signed by Columbia Records/Syco, label home to some of the world's leading recording artists.
"It's such an honor to be signed to Columbia Records," said Crow. "To think that I am signed to the same label as my idols is a dream come true. I can't wait to get in the studio and start making music." Added Crow, "And I am so excited to now be a part of the Nickelodeon family. I grew up watching Nick, and I'm a huge fan."
Damn she is adorable.
Simon Cowell, X Factor judge and Rachel Crow's mentor during the show, said "I am incredibly happy for Rachel. This girl has it. We saw her potential at the first audition and Nickelodeon and Columbia are the right homes for her."
In addition to plans for her to star in a new pilot for the network, Crow is slated to appear in a recurring role in Nickelodeon's new comedy series FRED: THE SHOW appearing opposite Lucas Cruikshank. Crow will play Starr, an imaginative, confident but awkward teenager. Like Fred, Starr's self-perception doesn't match up with how the world sees her. To her classmates, she seems a bit eccentric, but in her own mind, Starr is a wildly talented actress and singer and ready to break out of her boring town. FRED: THE SHOW airs on Friday nights.
Congrats, Miss Crow.
