One valley music producer says a rising star from Arizona has the X factor.
R. Kelly has worked with him, so has 50 Cent and Nas.
Now this successful music producer is living right here in Arizona. Producer Wade Martin turned part of his home into a music studio and he's working with an artist who he says is the next big star.
Katy Cappella just released her new album and is starting to tour around the state.
Cappella was living a normal life working in corporate America when she got the guts to make the switch.
