Young, blind singer debuts Christmas song on WCL
Emmanuelle Lo, 12, shares her original Christmas song.
Emmanuelle Lo (www.emmanuellelo.com) was born blind in 1999. Along with her parents, Ben and Rachelle, Emmanuelle and five siblings rent a small, two-bedroom/one-bath home in New Buffalo, Michigan.
The Lo family couldn't afford music lessons, though, so Emmanuelle's training was limited and sporadic. She wrote "Night of Our Lives" less than 3 months after getting a guitar at 11-years-old. It took her just 20 minutes to create it.
Emmanuelle plans to donate a portion of the song's iTunes sales to the "Opportunity Music Project - OMP," a New York-based non-profit that provides music lessons for disadvantaged children.
