Singer calling for parliamentary inquiry
Rebecca Ferguson has called for parliamentary action to trigger an “overhaul” and “bullying” of the music industry that she accuses of taking place within it.
This comes after confirmation that the former X Factor Contestants will discuss the welfare and treatment of musicians within the industry in May with Secretary of State Oliver Dowden.
A letter from the singer stated: “The music industry is currently very much in mind with the Commons Select Committee as the economics of music streaming is in the process of an investigation. Rebecca Select Committee to inquire beyond just streaming and The artist is calling for Kalyan to come under the microscope. “
Good News! Some really positive progress…
Thank you ‘Secretary of State’ @ OliverDowen To come back to me.
I look forward to hearing with you about artist welfare and the recommendations of my proposals / proposals from the music industry regulator / ombudsman. https://t.co/wYHjqX9Vrr

It added that Rebecca has since contacted “a major UK broadcaster” and broadcast watchdog com to begin investigating the treatment of the cast involved in the reality show.
It added: “My proposals are not very different to other businesses, I want people working within the industry to have someone above themselves, so they can never become so powerful that their actions are unfair . “
Last month, Ferguson also launched a petition for the public to sign and support other musicians.
