Style: Teen pop; compare to Kelly Clarkson, Orianthi, Callann Lane
Top tracks: "You Satisfy," "Prove Em Wrong," "15 Minutes of Fame"
A childhood of singing, modeling (she was National Miss American Junior Teen in 2008), dancing, and acting primed Katelynne Cox for pop success. Now 16 and a graduate of the now defunct American Idol Camp for kids, Cox brings a powerful voice and bubbling production to her debut. Aside from several ear-pleasing confections, the lyrics (penned by several of Nashville's finest, including Joy Williams and Chris Sligh) celebrate individuality, bucking peer pressure, and taking a stand against bullying. Typical teen fare, but an encouraging lift for adolescents going through these things.1
