Laura White

Laura White has revealed she's been signed, eight years since her appearance on The X Factor.

We're still not quite over Laura's exit from the show back in 2008, leaving after falling into the bottom two against Ruth Lorenzo.

It was an unfortunate pairing with both girls super talented singers that frankly deserved to make the final.

After the show Laura did put out a single, You Should Have Known, which reached Number 32 in the charts.

Since then Laura has been song-writing for both herself and others and has released two self-funded EPs over the past few years. November 2013 saw her debut What My Mother Taught Me while last month saw Laura release No.95.

This week Laura announced to fans that she had been signed and would have a new EP out in the summer followed by a full album.

She tweeted: “Announcement of the day – Next EP – Summer 2016.. Album also 2016 – and both Label signed."

It's got us exited and while we wait for that, let's have a throw back to Laura on The X Factor live shows...
