Jan 2011 by Jessica Boulton, The PeopleX FACTOR runner-up Rebecca Ferguson is set for stardom in America, The People can reveal.
The single mum of two, who came second to Matt Cardle, is off to Los Angeles this month for meetings set up by Simon Cowell.
Cowell has already signed up Rebecca, 27, and fellow finalists One Direction. And he is sure the Liverpool girl can make it as a soul diva in the States.
Rebecca’s mentor Cheryl Cole will also be there to support her. A pal said: “She’s very excited. They have big things lined up.”
