If Simon Cowell and Dr. Luke both praise somebody in the span of a couple of days, you know something's going on--particularly if it's the same girl Kanye West also talked up on Twitter a while ago.
Here's what we know about Becky Gomez:
- She's 15.
- She's from California.
- Luke signed her back to Kemosabe/RCA in March.
- She's got an original song, "Turn the Music Up," in which she raps over a Latin-pop sample, as well as the standard slate of covers/rewrites including "Novacane" and "Otis"--the one that got Kanye and Luke's attention and tweets, as seen above.
- She's done the standard child-actress/singer auditioner circuit, which got her some Disney and Nickelodeon commercials in the past. (Plus, arguably, this.)
- She guested on Cody Simpson's "Wish U Were Here."
- She will make you feel old by saying, on her site, that she had a midlife crisis at age 9.
- She's not bad! Given the right material, you might be hearing more about her.
