The label flew her out to LA last week.

Allie Sherlock has signed a five-year record deal with One Republic Ryan Tedder’s record label Patriot Records.

The producer first saw Allie on Instagram, and arranged for her and her dad to fly out to LA to write and record songs.

The 12-year-old announced the news on the Ray D’arcy Show on RTÉ One, saying that she will record three albums under Tedder’s label.

The American music producer has previously worked with U2, Adele and Ed Sheeran.

She also announced that she will be doing a busking tour around Europe in the near future.

Allie appeared on The Ellen Show last week, where she really impressed viewers. She sang a rendition of A Million Years Ago and really wowed the crowd.

This isn’t the first time Allie had been invited onto the show, though.

Last year, it was reported that the Cork girl had been asked to appear on the US programme, but she declined due to the pressures associated with such fame.

However, Allie was clearly convinced as she blew everybody away on the show.

We wish her all the best!
