About Melanie Amaro

American-born British Virgin Islands singer, Melanie Amaro has an estimated net worth of $5 million as of 2011. She is the winner of the first season of The X Factor USA in 2011. Born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Melanie Amaro grew up in Tortola, British Virgin Islands. She spent much of her childhood with her grandparents, and would go back and forth between her parents in the US and her grandparents in Tortola, due to economic constraints. She began singing as a child and performed at community and church events. She auditioned for the first season of the “X Factor” in the United States, and was selected to continue to “Boot Camp”. She made it through “Boot Camp” and was invited to the judges’ houses. However, she was cut at that point. Simon Cowell, in consultation with the other judges, decided that he had made a mistake, and he flew to her home and invited her to rejoin the competition. She subsequently reached the finals and was named the 1st winner of “X Factor” in the USA and was awarded a $5 million recording contract with Syco Music and Epic Records. In addition to the contract, Amaro also appeared in a Pepsi commercial alongside Sir Elton John, which aired during Super Bowl XLVI on NBC.
