Born on February 5, 1995 in Bassano del Grappa, Italian pop singer Francesca Michielin began singing in her home town's gospel choir at the age of 14. She first caught the public's attention in 2011 after winning the fifth season of the Italian talent program X Factor. Her debut single, "Distratto," debuted at number one on the Italian singles chart and was eventually certified platinum. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
