She’s the youngest contestant to ever win the X Factor Australia: meet the 15-year old with a mad love for epic pop ballads, Marlisa.
The Sydney school girl just saw her debut single ‘Stand By You’ go straight to #1 on the Aussie charts and is set to release her self-titled album later this week.
Marlisa, who we think could be something like Australia’s answer to Ella Henderson, was mentored by Irish boy band legend Ronan Keating.
The girl clearly loves to sing because before getting on the X Factor Australia, she unsuccessfully auditioned for Australia’s Got Talent and The Voice Kids.
Check out Marlisa’s ‘Stand By You’, which was co-written and produced by DNA who have worked on big tunes for The Saturdays, Justice Crew and The Veronicas.
