So, for Ferguson’s third audition for X Factor, she was ready. “One last chance. I thought to myself, this time when you go, stop panicking about it and start thinking, ‘If I get through, I get through and if I don’t, life goes on.’ I was completely relaxed. And with that attitude, I got through.”
These days, Rebecca isn’t just making it; she is thriving. With an already successful album in the U.K., audiences packing her tour, and endorsements (YouTube the hilarious Walkers chips commercial), all eyes are on her, and she is poised to take the mantle. “I just want to touch people,” she says. “I want to build a strong fan base that really loves the music. And as long as people enjoy it and get something from it, I’m happy.”
