Rachel Crow Facts
- She was adopted by a couple after 1 year of having her as a foster. She said that she considered them her real parents, as they raised and loved her.

- Growing up, she had no idea she would be a professional actress or singer. Rachel chose acting when she was 10 years old because she felt she could learn the craft, while singing scared her.
- When asked about the advice she would give to someone afraid to fail, Rachel said: “Just go for it!”. Despite her massive experience in the music industry, she admitted she was always a little afraid to fail herself.
- Her favorite memory of filming TV series Schooled (2019), was when she exchanged chunky, uncomfortable boots for slippers in-between scenes with actress AJ Michalka, as well as any scene with Bryan Callen, as he made her laugh uncontrollably.
- She auditioned for The X Factor in 2011 with the song Mercy by Duffy.
- During The X Factor competition, Rachel sang Who You Are by Jessie J, I Have Nothing by Whitney Houston, If I Were a Boy by Beyoncé Knowles, Baby by Justin Bieber, Nothin’ on You by B.o.B and Bruno Mars, as well as Music and Me by Michael Jackson, among others.
- Her single Up All Night (2019) was about a crush she had on somebody, and that somebody had a crush on her, which she said never happened to her. Rachel said that the person still hasn’t found out that the song was dedicated to him/her.
- Her celebrity crush is Leonardo DiCaprio.
- She gets inspiration for her music by going through things, and songwriting is a form of therapy for her.

- When asked about the way she spends her free time, Rachel admitted she was a boring person, and that she simply lies in bed and watches Netflix with her friends around, because she doesn’t like to be alone.
- An artist she would love to collaborate with is Eminem, who is her favorite rapper.
- Rachel was cast in summer 2017 for the movie Bumblebee (2018), starring Hailee Steinfeld and John Cena, but none of her scenes made the final cut. It left her heartbroken, but she decided to take it as just 1 of the trials and tribulations in life.
