Good news for “Carly’s Angels” – the name given to fans of Carly Rose Sonenclar. It seems “The X-Factor” runner-up will have no problem releasing her album to the masses.
“I’m in pre-production on my album,” Sonenclar told me inside the Hard Rock Café in Times Square. The Westchester-native attended J-14’s Little Mix showcase. “I got signed to Simon Cowell’s company, so they picked up my recording option, which I’m very happy about.”
The 13 year-old has good reason to be pleased. It is hard enough for winners, let alone second and third place finishers, to release music on a large scale following a reality TV show. Now signed with Cowell’s SYCO Music, Sonenclar is almost guaranteed a major record label debut with Sony Music Entertainment – probably through either the Epic or Columbia Records imprint.
“I’ve been in the studio, I’m finishing school, and stuff like that,” said the teenager, who is back in New York where she will record most of her music. Sonenclar even brought a group of her friends down to red carpet at the Hard Rock Café for the event.
Another friend that Carly Rose hopes to talk with soon is Britney Spears.
“She just switched agents to my agent, so now hopefully I’m going to be able to get in touch with her,” she said. Spears left William Morris Endeavor for Creative Artists Agency after calling off her engagement with Jason Trawick. He represented Spears, but later stepped down as her agent to focus on their relationship.
