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.
