Beyoncé Signs Three Teen Artists To Deals Totaling $1.5 Million
You may recall video footage of the Bailey sisters which we posted. Well apparently Beyoncé was so taken with Chloe and Halle that she signed them!!! But that’s not all, she also signed another young talent.
According to Page Six reports:
Beyoncé has found a group of three aspiring singers and signed the teen crooners to contracts totaling $1.5 million.
The superstar is asking a Manhattan judge to approve the five-year deals, a requirement because the girls are minors, The Post’s Julia Marsh reports.
The first contract covers LA-based sisters Chloe Bailey, 17, and Halle Bailey, 15. Beyoncé’s manager came across a YouTube video of the duo belting out “Pretty Hurts,” a song from Beyoncé’s last album. The video has over 10 million views.
Their father, Douglas, gushes in court papers, “We cannot think of a better person to help guide the girls,” adding his daughters “worship” Bey. Their $1 million contract provides for up to six albums over five years. It awards Beyoncé 15 percent of the sisters’ gross earnings.
Beyoncé also signed a third singer, 14-year-old Sophie Beem of New York, to her Parkwood Entertainment company.
Beem inked a $560,000 deal after she wowed Parkwood executives. Beem finished in the top 40 contestants on “The X Factor” in 2012.
It should be interesting to see how these kids do but it seems like signing the Bailey sisters was a no-brainer. Those girls are something else!
Hit the flip for video footage of all three girls.
