Arts For The Schools presents Emi Sunshine, a 14-year-old prodigy from East Tennessee and a true vocal stylist. While her music has been described as old timey, she adds her own unique blend with a sprinkle of vivid emotion. She plays the guitar, mandolin, and ukulele while combining her bubbly disposition with deep, meaningful song content that brings storytelling to an audience of all ages.
