The X Factor 2014 finalist Andrea Faustini has signed a record deal with RCA it has been confirmed.
The Italian singer stole the hearts of the nation on the show impressing with his incredible vocal ability. Andrea moved from Italy to the UK to enter The X Factor and became known for his love of pugs thanks to his memorable first audition.
Talking about his record deal Andrea says, “Only a year ago I was a normal student in Italy with a dream to sing. Thanks to the UK public my dream is about to become a reality and I can’t wait to work with RCA and show everyone what I can do.”
Andrea is about to start working on his debut album with some of the world’s biggest songwriters and will release an album of original material later this year.
He is the third of last year’s X Factor contestants to land a record deal following the end of the show. Winner Ben Haenow and runner-up Fleur East have both inked deals with Syco.
