Popular singing reality show and an extraordinary brainchild of Simon Cowell (renowned entrepreneur, judge and founder of British Entertainment company called ‘Syco Entertainment’), X Factor has been known to have transformed the lives of its various participants throughout the world ever since its inception in 2004. Apart from talented and promising singers, it has also given to the world unforgettable bands, like One Direction and Fifth Harmony that went on to create mass hysteria and conquer hearts worldwide. The American version of the show has been equally successful and has acquired a cult following over the years.
The second season however, is perhaps, the most entertaining of all the seasons simply because it gave to the world Tate Stevens, popular all-girls band Fifth Harmony and Carly Rose Sonenclar, a child prodigy who gave the other senior contestants a run for their money!
Born in New York City to Bob and Terri Edelman Sonenclar, she possessed a creative bend from the tender age of 2 and juggled her studies with singing, dance, piano and acting lessons throughout her formative years. However, it was singing that captivated her the most and she idolized and mimicked reality show singers, all the while harbouring dreams of becoming a singer herself one day.
Perhaps, to realise this dream she came to the stage of X Factor USA in 2012 at the young age of 13 and enamoured the judges and audience alike with her awe-inspiring voice, endearing personality and astounding confidence. Although, she finished 2nd on the show, her remarkable renditions of songs like ‘Feeling Good’, ‘It Will Rain’, ‘How Do I Live’, ‘Over the Rainbow’ and ‘My Heart Will Go On’ among others not only made her one of the most adored contestants on the show, but also brought her worldwide recognition and fame.
However, most people are not aware of the fact that singing is not where it all began for Sonenclar, as she had tasted her fair share of fame in the acting domain before she conquered the music industry. Beginning in 2006 she went on to portray remarkable roles in stage productions, Broadway, television and films. As of 2017, Sonenclar lives with her parents and older brother named Russell in Mamaroneck, New York and is working to establish a successful career in the music field.

She released her debut original titled ‘Unforgettable’ in 2013 and followed it up with ‘Fighters’ a song that she not only sang, but also co-wrote. Sonenclar has also performed at various concerts and opening ceremonies. She came out with an original music video in 2014 titled ‘Everybody’s Watching’ that became quite popular among her fans.
