Tamera Foster signs recording contract with Syco Music...

Syco Music has announced that UK X Factor finalist Tamera Foster has signed a recording contract with the label. The 17-year-old, currently on the X Factor tour, will start recording her debut album on Simon Cowell's label when the tour wraps at the end of the month. 

Syco Music managing director Sonny Takhar says they are thrilled to have Tamera on the label as she's a "bona fide star."

Tamera, who has been deemed the British Rihanna, is living out her dreams and considers herself lucky to have her first job as a recording artist. It certainly beats working at a fast food joint. Congrats to her on the deal. She is a talented young woman who deserves to go far in her career.
