Real Confident Girls: Let Emi Add Some Sunshine To Your Day!

posted in: Real Girls, Video | 3

Emi Sunshine, doesn’t her name just make you smile?

She a guitar-strumming, Americana-music-belting, songwriting 11-year-old from Madisonville, Tennessee, and we can’t get enough!

Emi has made a name for herself singing with her band, Emi Sunshine and the Rain, at fairs and festivals across the country, and at little places like, oh, the Grand Ole Opry and the Ryman Auditorium.

Emi’s musical parents say she started singing super young, and wrote her first song by the time she was 5! She now has more than 18 thousand YouTube subscribers, she’s been on the Today show, and released her second record earlier this year.

Her song “I Am Able” is a confidence-inspiring anthem of perseverance, inspired by Emi’s own experience being bullied in school. She sings boldly about finding strength within, and encourages others to do the same when times are tough.

We love her courage and the way she is inspiring girls all over to follow their dreams! You can check out her YouTube channel for more videos, and follow her musical adventures on Twitter at @theemisunshine, or on Facebook!

  1. Lyrics: I Am Able 2/18/15
    Written by EmiSunshine and Alisha Hamilton

    I am able, I am strong
    Yes, I am able, I carry on.
    We are able, We are strong
    Yes, We are able, We carry on.

    We learn to stand, we learn to fight
    Not with hands, but with our minds.
    One who does all, when all needs done
    we walk the line, we carry on.

    I am able, I am strong
    Yes, I am able, I carry on.
    We are able, We are strong
    Yes, We are able, We carry on.

    We stand tall, when battles come
    We fight for peace, we never run.
    In spite of all, that’s said and done
    Together, we can overcome.

    I am able, I am strong
    Yes, I am able, I carry on.
    We are able, We are strong
    Yes, We are able, We carry on
    On and on, On and on,
    We carry on and On and on,
    On and on, On and on.
    We carry on
