Vince Gill's emotional song, "Go Rest High on That Mountain" has touched many people since it's release, no matter how young or old they may be.
One young fan named Emily Faith kicked off her YouTube channel in 2013 by posting a video of one of her performances of the song. The performance now has over 20,000 views, and helped Emily develop a fan base of over 5,000 subscribers.
Anyone who looks at the young Oklahoma teen's list of YouTube videos will discover that she not only covers country songs, but pop as well. Over the years, she's been told to try and pick a single genre to stick with, but she simply can't.
As described in the "About" section of her YouTube channel Emily says, "I am starting out my career as a cross over artist – I don’t want to be defined by one particular style. Like splatter paint my music represents many different parts of me."
Emily certainly excels at singing country music, as she made clear through her performance of "Go Rest High on That Mountain." For being so young, she demonstrated incredible control of her voice, and was able to hit every note, no matter how high or how low.
But what makes Emily's performance truly remarkable is the amount of emotion she puts into the words she sings. When an artist has the ability to connect to the song they perform, that's what proves their true talent.
We can't get enough of Emily's beautiful cover of Vince's classic song. Tune in below to give it a listen.
When she reaches the chorus, prepare yourself, because it's sure to give you chills!
