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!
