The Astronomical Kid (aka Astro, aka CKO, coldest kid out) who hails Brooklyn, NYC blew audiences away with his lyrics, panache and humility. And he's only a tween!
But X-Factor didn't make this talent up. He's the product of years in the making, and a ton of hard work has gone into getting him to the top 3 in the reality show. His first video, Stop Looking at My Mom, has almost 500,000 hits on Youtube. He's ... well, Astronomical!

Ok, so Astro is bringing his talent to Detroit ... here's the press release and flyer!
(For Immediate Release)
He writes his own rhymes, performs with the confidence of a music industry veteran, and can teach a few “kids” a thing or two about humility. After a recent blow up during a live performance on X-Factor the future-icon sucked up his youthful pride and apologized as well as managed to cover one of the most popular Jay-Z beats of 2010 (“Show Me What You Got”). Astronomical Kid is currently in the midst of rumors that he’s signed to top record label Roc Nation, which hasn’t been confirmed by founder Jay-Z, however this information hasn’t been denied either. As the first hip hop contestant to reach the final four of any major talent show, this Kid has star power.
