Long Distance

New Music: Melanie Amaro – ‘Long Distance’

Melanie Amaro soars on her new single “Long Distance.” The 20-year-old “X Factor” champ shows off her powerful pipes as she sings about a long distance relationship on the Top 40 tune.

Melanie’s Epic/Syco debut debut Truly… will be released in early 2013 featuring a mix of R&B, dance-pop, and big ballads. She has been in the studio with Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, Kuk Harrell, Tricky Stewart, and Bleu McAuley, among others.

“There’s one side of me that’s all about pop, the kind of music you can move and dance to and have fun with, but my biggest influences have always been singers like Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, and I definitely stayed true to that on the album,” said Melanie, who will return to “The X Factor” on Thursday to perform the song for the first time.
