The name EmiSunshine is one that country fans have quickly grown familiar with. That’s because the young singer from East Tennessee was born with immense musical talent.
EmiSunshine has a voice that takes you back to the classic era of country and folk music.
According to her website, when EmiSunshine was ten months old she was able to hum the melodies to songs, which was long before she learned to talk. As the years passed she learned how to write her own songs and play multiple instruments.
By age seven, EmiSunshine had already recorded her first two albums, but her talent remained basically hidden until one video changed everything.
In 2014, someone filmed EmiSunshine singing Jimmie Rodgers‘ “Blue Yodel No. 6” at a flea market. Then, the video of EmisSunshine singing went viral. In turn, it introduced thousands of people to the little girl’s unbelievable talent.
