In 2013, the original members of the group ‘Forever in Your Mind,’ Kelly (as a solo artist), Garcia and Klaasen (as part of the same group) appeared on the season 3 of ‘The X Factor’.

However, Simon Cowell, who was on the panel of judges, told them to continue to be part of the show as a pop trio which he named ‘Forever in Your Mind’.The group was moderately successful in the competition and was eventually eliminated before the final 16. In June 2014, Klassen made his departure from the band to pursue other things. Kelly suggested Attridge as a replacement and he subsequently joined the band.On March 12, 2015, the group released their debut single ‘Sweet Little Something. Three days later, they also released a second version on which they collaborated with singer and actress Jordyn Jones.
