Crews from FOX Television’s X-Factor visited the Fall River Valley to film a segment on 25-year-old Jamie Pineda (pictured above) recently.
Pineda is a Top 5 Female finalist on the third season of the show.
Pineda performed for Mayers Memorial Hospital Long Term Care residents and the clip was used on national television on last week’s episode.
She is the daughter of Rusty & Vera Westlund and the granddaughter of Phil and Irene Pineda. She says she is following her dream and make her hometown proud.
Jamie, who is currently working a couple days a week for her grandmother at La Cocinita, started following her dream, performing in the Fall River Valley and with the support of the Valley was able to launch a singing career. She hopes that coming out number four out of over 4,000 competitors nationwide on the XFactor will give her the opportunity she needs to land a new contract and continue her singing career.
She has finished a five year contract which resulted in two albums and performances in Europe, including London, Germany, Sweden, also Japan, New York and Nashville.
She appeared at the Inter Mountain Fair a few years ago entertaining fairgoers from
the Gazebo.
