Pulaski County USA is proud to support Waynesville native Vino Alan, a contestant on FOX’s “The X Factor” this year! He took the stage with confidence in Kansas City, on Sept. 15, to prove to the judges that he indeed has the “X Factor” that will win him the $5 million dollar recording contract.
Although some judged Alan on his visible tattoos and rough exterior, he won over the American public and the judges as soon as he began singing “Trouble” by Ray LaMontagne. See his performance here.
Throughout “The X Factor Bootcamp,” Vino continued to WOW America with his unusually amazing sound; however, it was his emotional rendition of Pink’s “Sober” at LA Reid’s house that got him into the Top 16 and onto the Live shows. Vino worked hard to get where he is, but hasn’t forgotten about the struggles that got him here. Working to support his 15-year-old son has been his main goal throughout this competition, and you can feel that passion behind every song he sings.
If you love Vino Alan as much as we do, tune in to “The X Factor” on FOX, Wednesdays and Thursdays, to listen to his soulfully passionate voice that has women from all over the world proposing to him.
