Melanie Amaro has the X Factor

Congratulations to Sunrise, Florida’s own Melanie Amaro for her X Factor USA win. She’s got an amazing voice that took her to the top of a talent-packed group. Here’s Melanie’s favorite shot from the shoot I did when I appeared on X Factor to photograph all the finalists.

  1. I love this shot of Melanie too. I also love the last shot, I’m sure it is yours also, before they would flash her name and announce her to sing. She is looking off to the lower left. I LOVE THAT SHOT! Very exciting Brian!
