Bianca Ryan - the 12-year-old vocal prodigy who won the first season's ratings-topping finale of "America's Got Talent" on August 17 - has signed with Columbia Records/SYCO, an imprint of Simon Cowell, the show's executive producer. Cowell recently exclaimed, “Bianca Ryan is potentially one of the best singers I have ever heard in my life.”

The rising star's much-anticipated debut album is slated for release on Tuesday, November 14.

Bianca - a Philadelphia native who's been performing in dance competitions and singing in her church since the age of 8 - turned in a series of show-stopping R&B-flavored performances over the course of the debut season of "America's Got Talent."

The show's finale was the #1 rated show in its Thursday time-slot, averaging close to 12 million viewers. Bianca’s amazing performances are among the most-watched clips on

Bianca’s debut will feature an array of new and already familiar material, including her million dollar-winning cover of “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” from the Broadway hit Dreamgirls. Music’s heaviest hitters have signed on to record with Bianca on this soon to be smash debut record. “I Wish That,” a beautiful ballad penned by Diane Warren accompanies the inspirational “Pray For A Better Day” which was written by David Foster and Kara DioGuardi.

“Why Can’t It Be Christmas Everyday?” is an original holiday track written by Walter Afanasieff and Jay Landers. Afanasieff co-wrote the smash hit “All I Want For Christmas Is You” with Mariah Carey. Bianca also brings new life to the Debby Boone classic “You Light Up My Life,” and the R. Kelly hit “I Believe I Can Fly.” A stirring cover of Bette Midler’s “The Rose” showcases Bianca’s incredible vocal capacity.
