For this Monday, we have some more fun “X Factor” USA notes to share, including some more songwriting news for Tate Stevens and the large amount of fan support that CeCe Frey is still receiving several weeks after her elimination on the show.
Tate’s new writing partners – As it turns out, our champ is getting opportunities beyond just getting to write with the guy responsible for Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’,” as he is working now with some rather-popular artists within the world of country music. Tate posted on his Twitter this weekend that he had a chance to write with John Rich (who really needs no explanation at all), and also Bridgette Tatum (who wrote “She’s Country” for Jason Aldean). Tate is likely to get some pretty great songs from all of these folks, and his debut is shaping up to be a good one already. We’re not huge into the country music universe, so if we’ve heard of the names working with him, it is a rather good sign.
Carly’s vocal training – Meanwhile, the reigning runner-up Carly Rose Sonenclar tweeted out herself this weekend that she is already hard at work on making her voice the best that it can be:
“Just finished my first vocal lesson of #2013! Working hard and excited about the New Year!!”
Carly is probably going to cut an album at some point, but it is expected that hers will take a little longer than Tate’s given that he is already knee-deep into the writing process.
Finally, CeCe’s fan support – Want to know just how passionate CeCe’s Warriors are? Know this: she posted a P.O. Box for fans to send mail to in Illinois, and within the span of the week she has already received 100 items of fan mail. Not bad, right? We’re still excited to see what CeCe does moving forward; we always thought she had the most potential to be a genuine pop star out of anyone on the show this year, and we still think that.
