Emily Bear: Soon To Be Legend
The word "prodigy" is often overused in terms of music. I wouldn't even feel the need to post this thread if, for instance, Emily Bear just did this:
YouTube - Emily Bear playing Solfeggietto
As you can see, she plays excellently. Amazing yes, but not enough. Mozart was composing songs before he was ten. For the record, Emily Bear is six years old. Now, there are two more videos that amazed me, the first one is a piece that she wrote for Ellen DeGeneres, who invited her onto her show, and Emily said she wrote this in ten minutes. The second one is another piece she wrote.
1. YouTube - Ellen's Song - Emily Bear
2. YouTube - Emily Bear
Basically, I'm predicting right now, this girl will be the most famous composer of the 21st century. If she doesn't gain wide recognition, then shame on our culture and how it has degenerated.
When asked about how she writes her music, she shrugs and says it "just comes to her"
I am dumbfounded.
The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.
