Tamera competed on X Factor last year, although having one of the best voices in the competition she finished in fifth place.
Tweeting in the early hours of the morning, Tamera announced ‘I’m The Newest member of syco music!! GET THAT WORKK! IM SO BLESSED TO HAVE MY DREAM JOB AT THE AGE OF 17, Thank God Always💛’
Syco were quick to confirm the new signing tweeting ‘ .@OfficialTamera welcome to the family!’
A Syco source told The Sun on Sunday, “Tamera’s incredible…
“She got a rough time on the show because she forgot her lyrics all the time, but she’s incredibly young.
“There’s definitely something special about her…
“She’s a potential superstar in the making.”
As to when Tamera’s album will be released the Syco source said ”
“She wants to become a real artist and write some of her own material too.”
Simon is also said to have been hugely impressed with the 17-year-old star – who is thought to be the youngest artist signed to Syco – throughout last year’s series, even though she forgot her lyrics during live performances on more than one occasion.
He regularly watched the show – which he is set to return as a judge on this year – from the US, where he was filming the US version of The X Factor, and was a big fan of the teenager’s talent.
‘Simon was always incredibly keen on Tamera – he’s been a huge fan.’
Sonny Takhar, Syco Music Managing Director, added: ‘We are thrilled that Tamera has chosen Syco Music as her label home, she is a bonafide star!’
Tamera will get to work on her album as soon as the nationwide X Factor tour ends later this month.
