What. A. Family.
Sources tell PerezHilton.com exclusively that X Factor breakout star Chris Rene (above) will reunite with his sister Gina Rene on the show, who also auditioned in El Lay.
Here's what a source had to say about it:
"With everything that had been going on in their lives & Chris especially, they'd grown apart, spent a lot of time apart and never sorted things out – suddenly they are together again in this highly emotional week. Seeing them together was amazing. Its rare you would have siblings make it together but as solo artists but Gina is a talented singer too."
"During that week u could see they loved sharing the whole experience together, bootcamp is pretty tough and they needed each other."
"Gina is cool and amazing looking, she's worked hard at her singing and her career. "
Here are some more deets about Gina and the Rene family that we've been told exclusively!
- Her grandpa Leon Rene wrote the song Rockin Robin, and Louis Armstrong's theme song Sleep Time Down South
- Gina was the lead singer/co-songwriter in her brother Gabriel's band Soulstice, and studied with vocal coach/singer Raz Kennedy, who also worked with Bobby McFerrin
- Gina's original track U Must Be was featured in 2006 movie Step Up
Wowsa! Guess it's not a huge surprise that Chris Rene has got so much musical talent, with a family like that!
What do U think? Is Chris going to make his musical family proud and come out on top in X Factor?
