Born in New Orleans but raised in Florida, Rachel Potter was influenced musically by her rock-n-roller parents, her Baptist church upbringing, and her classical training. She started out her professional career performing in several shows at Walt Disney World, as Ariel, Belle and Nemo. She later starred on Broadway in adaptations of The Addams Family, as Wednesday, Evita, as the Mistress, and Glinda in Wicked.
But with her heart always residing in country music, she recorded and released her debut EP, "Live The Dream," in 2012 which showcased her diverse musical background. Just a year later, she left behind the "Great White Way" to find her place among the neon lights of Music City.
Potter went on to become a Top 12 finalist on season three of The X Factor, earning international praise for her rendition of Queen's "Somebody to Love." Her take on the classic tune, which has now reached over 20 million views on YouTube, will be featured on her upcoming album, "Not So Black and White" - due for release March 3, 2015.
