Following Your Dreams: Rachel Potter, Country Singer

Born in New Orleans, Rachel Potter has been singing since she was three years old. I first saw Rachel perform on The X Factor USA and I began rooting for her to win. She was amazing on the show, but unfortunately she was sent home way too early.

Rachel is a big believer in following her dreams. She puts her heart and soul into it. In fact her own quote says it all: "God doesn’t put dreams in people’s hearts if he doesn’t intend to make them a reality." Rachel has been working all her life towards this end and I really admire her for not giving up. Rachel started writing songs when she was just 12 years old and in 2010 released a 10 song album called "Come Back Home," of her original songs. She has performed in many venues, eventually getting the part of Wednesday Addams in a Broadway production of The Addams Family. Rachel currently lives in Nashville, where she is pursuing her dream of making country music and changing the world with her words.

Rachel is not sitting around waiting to be discovered. Currently she is working on her new album, “Not So Black and White,” as an independent artist. She has no record label to back her so she is asking fans to help fund her dream and make it a reality. In exchange, fans will get rewards based on the amount of their contribution. The list of rewards is quite extensive and Rachel’s dedication to her music career is equally impressive. If you are a fan of Rachel’s or country music in general and believe in people following dreams, you can help Rachel at the following website: There you can preorder her new album and so much more.
