Emily East, 17, is a sixth form student at Fearnhill School, Letchworth GC, but lives in Hitchin, trying to make a go of her singing career.
Rather than opt for the glitz and glamour of The X Factor or Britain’s Got Talent, the 17-year-old has decided to showcase herself via YouTube.
So far this is bearing fruit as she has 758 subscribers and 50,824 views on her channel.
Emily is a singer songwriter and also plays the guitar. She has been playing the guitar and singing for about five years.
She said: “By posting my videos on YouTube I get a variety of responses from people and this gives me the confidence I need.
“Singing has always been a passion of mine, so to get all the friendly and kind feedback that I do really means a lot.”
The singer songwriter currently has a number of potential gigs she will be performing over the summer.
You can subscribe to Emily and watch all of her videos via her YouTube channel emilymusic1996.
