The rejected X Factor contestant has recorded a charity single, which could hit the high street within weeks
Rejected X Factor contestant Gamu Nhengu has recorded a charity single, which could hit the high street within weeks, and is already being tipped to battle the X Factor winner for Christmas number one.
Earlier this year, judge Cheryl Cole caused controversy by axing Zimbabwean born Gamu – who has been battling officials over deportation and visa issues – before the X Factor live shows.
But now the singer is back, and could soon be steaming up the charts with her brand new single.
The track, entitled Where Will You Sleep This Christmas, is being released on behalf of Children’s charity Aberlou, with the proceeds raising money to help Scottish families and children, according to reports.
‘The charity has the copyright for the song so will be able to put the money to good use,’ one music insider told the Mirror.
‘Gamu sounds wonderful on it and it really could go to No1 with all the positive publicity she’s had since leaving X Factor.’
