Rebecca Ferguson is often regarded as the most naturally talented singer to emerge from The X Factor TV series. Her million selling debut album ‘Heaven’ launched her in a blaze of critical acclaim in 2011. The album went on to become double platinum in the UK and generated hit singles ‘Nothing’s Real But Love’ and ‘Teach Me How To Be Loved’.
As with ‘Heaven’, Rebecca co-wrote her new album, ‘Freedom’, working mainly with new collaborators including Jarrad Rogers, with whom she wrote 5 tracks. As well as Jarrad, she also worked with Mr. Hudson, Matt Hales, Toby Gad and TMS, and regular collaborator Eg White. ‘Freedom’ has provided Rebecca with another Top 10 release which has already achieved gold in album sales and features the singles ‘I Hope’ and ‘All That I’ve Got’.
