12-Year-Old Music Sensation, EmiSunshine, Among Award-Winning Actors, Actresses And The “Who’s Who” In Film Entertainment At World Premiere Screening In The French Riviera.
EmiSunshine enjoyed a special and spectacular welcome at the 70th Festival de Cannes this past weekend in Cannes, France. Upon the invitation of notable film director Eugene Jarecki, the twelve-year-old from East Tennessee concluded her show at the Southgate House Revival (Newport, KY) and hopped a plane to travel to the French Riviera (some 13-plus hours) to attend one of the film industry’s most famed and elite event, brushing elbows with Hollywood’s most decorated producers, screenwriters, directors and actors (Will Smith, Nicole Kidman, Clint Eastwood
and Jessica Chastain to name a few).
The invitation is an extension following Emi’s guest appearance in Jarecki’s documentary titled “The King”—one of the featured films at the 2017 Cannes Festival world premiere screening on Saturday, May 20. The film also highlights Emi’s performance of her self-penned/self-produced track “Danny Ray” (and the bonus track from her new CD project, RAGGED DREAMS, anticipated in August 2017).
A portrait and musical story told from the back seat of Elvis Presley’s 1963 Rolls Royce, Jarecki carries performers on a music-filled road trip across the U.S. picking up passengers (famous and not-so-famous) as they travel through an America at a crossroads in the midst of the 2016 election.
“We were all stuffed into the backseat of a hot car, with our instruments for more than six hours…driving the streets of Nashville. It was probably the most uncomfortable and best car ride I’ve ever had. …gives new meaning to the word ‘jammin’!” EmiSunshine said of the experience.
Other notable folks who make an appearance in the back seat include Alec Baldwin, Ethan Hawke, Ashton Kutcher and Stax Music Academy, singers.
The preteen has become a sought-after song crafter for film, television, and books; EmiSunshine music has been featured in various films and books. Her songs
“I Am Able” and “Little Blackbird” are spotlighted in the “More Than Words” documentary (produced by Grammy Winner and Founder of the Documentary Channel, Suzanne Homes); “I Am Able” also appears in the Amazon/Barnes & Noble Bestseller “The Ables.”
Outstanding!!!! EmiSunshine is the most talented young lady to surface in a long long time!!!! She is not an overnight success! She started when she was about 4 and has been gathering her a crowd ever since A complete package from songwriting to singing her heart out for her fans!!!!!!
For the first time in my life I can say I have become a “groupie”! At 66 years old I retired and started going to as many of her shows as I possible can. I have gotten to know her and her family on and off stage and she and they are the REAL DEAL!!!!!!!
She’s so very talented and has wisdom way betond her years..So amazing…
I just found her on a you tube video on mishap one night and have mesmerized by her talent.
Loved this article! I think we’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg and what is now still submerged will surely bring world acclaim for this young songstress. I have followed her path over the last few years and her talent is enormous on so many levels, the songwriting, the instrumentation, her ability to relate to her audience, her obvious joy in what she is doing, and of course, that one of a kind VOICE! Her growth has been tremendous, and yet she has stayed humble and true to her Appalachian family roots! Can’t wait to see what EmiSunshine had in store for us next!
What wonderful and talented young lady. My husband and I have been following her for about 7 years since we first saw her playing in Market Square,Knoxville, Tn. My husband passed away in Feb.this year but had been to his 104th show a week before. They had their graduation that at the end after everyone had their pictures and autographs, they would have their time for pictures and talk. He loved that sweet girl so much and considered himself her # one fan and was the unofficial president of the Sunshine’s fan club. She was always kind to him and always made time to talk and laugh together. Miss Emi Sunshine has grown so much in these years that we have known her and contains to amaze us all with her talent. Though Ray is gone I still continue to attend as many shows as possible and give the support I know Ray would want. God Bless Emi and family for all the joy you brought to his life. We Loved you all….I Love you all.
That is supposed to be tradition not graduation.
Thank you for your post and love for EmiSunshine. We hope to see you soon and will be praying for you. – Team Emi
Her talent is endless!! Won’t be surprised one but when she not only sharing her stories through her music on stage but sharing her heart & soul in movies, modeling, whatever. She beautiful inside & out!!! So excited and anxious for the release of her new CD – RAGGED DREAMS August 25! Be on the lookout for her videos, shows, etc!!!
I’ve been following Emisunshine since September 2014 after 40 shows in 7 different states I’m still amazed by the smiles and tears of joy her music brings to people. I’m blessed to be a founding member of her family of Sunshiners and I enjoy taking videos at every show to share with people in many of her Facebook fan clubs and other people around the world. We all show a tight bond for Her as we join in private videos and discuss security and protection for her safety. I love this little family..
