Ne-Yo signs new artist via Facebook


R&B star Ne-Yo has signed an emerging artist to his record label after discovering her music on social networking site Facebook.

Bing: Ne-Yo was rumored for 'X Factor' gig

The singer, Sonna Rele, hopes to launch her music career through his Compound Entertainment company. Ne-Yo unveiled his protegé during his show in London on Thursday night.

"I'm really excited about it. She's an incredible talent and I didn't want to make the mistake I've made before of letting an incredible artist slip through my fingers," he told "I'm not making that mistake with this one. It definitely wasn't something I was expecting to do -- even my team were surprised by (the) whole thing as it was very sudden."

Said Rele: "I knew Ne-Yo was intrigued by the music as we've been talking for a while, but I had no idea that I would get signed like this ... I am over the moon!"
