Fans seek record deal for 4th Impact after ‘X Factor UK’ stint

User Rating:  / 2

Following 4th Impact’s dramatic exit from “The X Factor UK,” a petition was filed on change.org calling Sony Music Entertainment, the second largest record label in the world, to sign the group so they could be full-fledged recording artists.

Initiated by Kenneth Koshy of Cape Town, South Africa, the online petition said “from moving from competition to competition around the world, this girl group needs recognition.”

The petition, which was also addressed to Simon Cowell and Louis Tomlinson of “One Direction,” also wanted the group to grace the “Ellen” show by Ellen DeGeneres.

“I have just added for 4th impact to be sent to the Ellen Show, please continue to show support for this petition by sharing so that it may be successful,” Koshy wrote.

Change.org is a popular website that hosts public petitions. Kenneth’s appeal has been signed by 2,942 co-petitioners as of Wednesday afternoon.

The girl group from the Philippines - composed of sisters Celina, Almira, Irene and Mylene - was voted off from the competition after facing contestant Lauren Murray in a sing-off during the show’s results night early Sunday, Nov. 29.

4th Impact’s elimination came as a shock to their fans around the world. Despite their sadness and disappointment, many of them said they couldn’t wait for the group’s first album and concert tours.

“I love 4th impact presence and performances, the singing is so unforgettable, and it breaks my heart not to hear them sing and perform again,” said Karen Torsiende, a supporter from London.

Charles Chandler, from Birmingham, United Kingdom, commented on the petition. “4th Impact are already capable of filling concert halls. They have tremendous potential to advance to filing stadiums! They already have a strong international following. Plus they work hard, listen to advice and connect brilliantly with fans.”

“These girls are internationally charming, their voices are amazing! With the right songs, music videos, commercials and coaching, I’m sure they’ll be successful! I’m a huge fan of them. THE WORLD is READY FOR 4TH IMPACT!” said Mc Rey of Toronto, Canada.

Muhammad Nabil of Amman, Jordan, said the group had joined too many competitions and “it’s time they stop cover someone else’s songs and start making their own.”
