Rochester's own Lillie McCloud is finally getting her break!

After several years of singing and performing as a little-known artist among those who have made it big, even the likes of her mentor, Michael Jackson, it is finally her time to shine!

At 54 years of age, but appearing to be half that age, Lillie McCloud is taking full advantage of that opportunity, as she has thus far blown away Simon Cowell, Kelly Rowland and the rest of the 'X-FACTOR' judges, as well as America...and is seemingly well on her way to a very possible win on this season's 'X-FACTOR' TV series.

I had the HONOR and pleasure of interviewing Lillie McCloud after her tear-jerking and anointed performance of "A House Is Not A Home" by Luther Vandross...her second winning performance, following her initial winning performance of "Alabaster Box" by CeCe Winans!

Listen to the interview, and then enjoy the first two 'X-FACTOR' performances by this very humble and charismatic future star!

HERE'S LILLIE MCCLOUD...FORMERLY NICOLE MCCLOUD!!!!!
