Melanie Amaro – 106 & Park – VIDEO

X Factor winner, Melanie Amaro was a guest on BET’s 106 & Park yesterday.  She talked about her growing confidence as she competed on X Factor, being bullied when she was younger and how God and music helped her through, and who she’d like to work with in the future (Ne Yo and Mariah Carey.)

She even sang a little Beyonce, “Best Thing I Never Had”.

    in this article she says she wants to pursue the field of nursing which she was doing before. though with an amazing  voice like that  she has she could probably heal the sick with it .

    I was cracking up at the new accent too…it changes depending on the audience, I guess. Ha

    I don’t think there is really any buzz for the X-Factorettes outside of their hyper fan groups…if I didn’t post at MJs I wouldn’t have a clue that any of the finalists existed.
