Rebecca Ferguson, runner-up on the seventh season of the U.K. “X Factor,” made her U.S. television debut on “Today” Tuesday, May 29, which is also the day her album “Heaven” drops in the U.S. She performed “Nothing’s Real But Love,” her debut single off the album.

“I feel really blessed and lucky. It’s really hard to take in. I can’t believe how much my life has changed. I’m just hoping that it lasts and lasts, and I continue to make music,” the 25-year-old single mom tells Ann Curry. They also have a chuckle over Rebecca’s broken leg – she slipped on some water and down she went.

Ferguson also says that her 7-year-old daughter and 6-year-old son are very musical as well.

“They’re very musical. They join in. They always sing the songs from the album. Me little girl is a dancer, so she’s always dancing around to the music. She’s really adorable,” says Ferguson.

What do you think of her debut single “Nothing’s Real But Love.” She’s been praised as a combination of Amy Winehouse and Aretha Franklin – do you hear that about Rebecca’s voice?
