Beatrice Miller, the 13 year old singing sensation from Maplewood, NJ made it into the round of twelve on last week’s broadcast of The X Factor. Bea, as her family and friends call her, owned the stage that night showing the comfort of a seasoned performer as she wowed the audience pouring her heart and soul into her rendition of The Goo-Goo Dolls song, Iris. She made the whole state of New Jersey proud, showing America exactly what Jersey Strong looks like in person.

Beatrice is an eighth grader at Maplewood Middle School with a penchant for poetry, music and friends. She is a former Girls Scout and MSO girls softball player who attended Tuscan school and was always in the show there. Superstorm Sandy made it difficult for Maplewood and South Orange residents to view her performances last week and this week with power outages at 60% and internet and cable outages as well. Nevertheless, Beatrice lit up the night and earned enough of America’s hearts to continue her journey. Hopefully after next week’s performance with so much power restored in the town and the state her fellow students, friends and Jersey residents will power up their Jersey Strong to help Bea get even better placing in the rankings by voting for her as their top contestant.

Beatrice shared her thoughts after her performance on Wednesday, “I wanted to do my best for me and for my home state. I’m a Jersey girl who loves the shore and everything about my state. I was so sad to see the devastation that Sandy brought to New Jersey, but I know how strong the people in my state are and I wanted to be strong for them and give the best performance I possibly could as a tribute to them.” Show your Jersey Strong support for Beatrice Miller, tune in to THE X FACTOR next Wednesday, November 14th from 8 – 10 pm on the FOX network click here for the link or follow the on screen instructions to cast a vote (or many) for Maplewood’s own Beatrice Miller.
