Rebecca Ferguson would like to match the success of Adele, and is hoping to do so in America later this year.
"She’s not an untouchable artist. For me, that’s what I want to be," she said of Adele while talking about plans to launch 'Heaven' in the US.
She went on to say: "It’s amazing what Brits are doing in the US," hoping that Adele and her fellow X Factor graduates 1D have paved the way for her.
Rebecca announced that she will mark her debut US release in May with "quite a few" promotional trips, interviews and appearances already pencilled in.
She added to Star Playlist: "My label are really positive."
