It’s charming to chat with a young singer like Diamond White, who’s insanely talented but still has all the quirks and refreshing positivity of a 13-year-old. Although she’s young, she can still devour mature songs like “It’s a Man’s World,” which she sang at her San Francisco audition. It helps that Diamond starred in a production of “The Color Purple” when she was eight and appeared on an episode of Maury Povich celebrating talented children.
Luckily, she can still hold up a solid conversation about Justin Bieber and Glee, two of her current obsessions (not to mention, mine too). Diamond just performed for her mentor Britney Spears, who’s deciding if she’ll make it to the finals.
Where are you right now? I’m in LA, just sitting down and talking to you!
If you didn’t audition for The X-Factor, what would you be doing today? I’m home schooled so I’d just be crafting a lot, making jewelry and living the regular life. I wouldn’t be busy but X Factor fills your days up with rehearsing.
What do you want your album to sound like? I would like to make hip hop with a twist — to make my own unique sound in pop and mix it with my Detroit background.
If we went in your room, who would we see posters of? I make my own posters of celebrities! But if I bought them then probably Justin Bieber or Glee.
The Wanted or One Direction? One Direction!!
