EmiSunshine & Perfect Joy Revival

 

EmiSunshine Hamilton came into this world singing. Hitting her first perfect pitch C when she was in her Daddy's arms for the first time. Humming along harmony's before she could say Mama. Listening to her Grandmothers sing she learned quickly and has been performing live since she was 4 years old. Now with her own band comprised of family and friends she is on her way to a successful start. EmiSunshine wakes up singing and goes to bed singing. "It's just in her, the Music is inside her" said a local fan. Gravitating to a soulful blues infused sound she is apt to also pull out Bluegrass, Southern Gospel or folk songs at any given time. At 7 years old she is quickly becoming the artist she wants to be.
