Rachel Crow Signs a Deal with Columbia Records and Nickelodeon


We are so happy for Rachel Crow!

The adorable and extremely talented teenager won over our hearts on “The X Factor” and now we can expect to see a lot more of her. Nickelodeon has signed the fourteen year-old to an overall talent deal in which the the network is developing a comedy series for her.

Rachel has also 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 Rachel. “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.”

Simon Cowell, The 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.”

While we wait for Rachel’s pilot, you can see her as a recurring star on Lucas Cruikshank’s Nickelodeon show, “Fred: The Show.” She 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 Rachel! We cannot wait for your album.
