I used to be a die hard fan of those singing competition shows. Then, somewhere along the way, I just kind of lost interest. (I seem to have lost interest in much of TV these days.) So these days I don't often know what's going on with those singing shows at all.
The other night I came upon a young girl singing on what turned out to be the X Factor that I just could not ignore. She was mesmerizing and her Southern country style was just wonderfully comfortable to hear. When I found out she was only 13 years old and has some challenging life issues, I was even more impressed.
Take a listen and look at Rion Paige and let me know what you think!
