Emmy took to the stage beside Lynn, who introduced the girl and her mother, one of the legend’s twin daughters. Before strumming her guitar, Lynn’s granddaughter told the audience she was about to sing the heartbreaking song “If I Die Young” by The Band Perry.

As Emmy began to sing, the audience erupted in cheer and applause, praising the youngster’s talent.

Progressing through the song, Lynn watched her granddaughter, beaming with pride and sheer appreciation for the gift her granddaughter possesses.

12 years later, Emmy is still as talented and is competing on Season 22 of American Idol!

She performed an original song titled “Skinny,” which she wrote after battling an eating disorder due to the pressure of performing with her grandmother.
