Emily Luther is the epitome of a small-town girl dreaming big. From ‘The Voice’ to her own viral videos, this pop singer truly has it all!
Meet Emily Luther – Pop Singer
Emily Luther is most known for being a contestant on the hit talent show ‘The Voice.’ Prior to making herself known on this television show, she was truly a simple small-town girl dreaming big. Originally from Woonsocket, Rhode Island, she is the first and only musician in her family, who then went on to study music therapy at the Berklee College of Music. Since she was a young girl, she had a burning passion for musical theatre and had been performing any time she could ever since. While at Berklee, she made tons of connections in L.A., and decided to move out there in pursuit of a musical career. After getting involved with a team of people in the industry who judged Luther by her looks, she decided to put her dreams on hold and move back to R.I. with her family. She mainly performed at weddings and corporate events, until she decided to take a whack at ‘The Voice.’
If you’re a big fan of ‘The Voice,’ then you know that each contestant first goes through a blind audition. This entails the contestant singing to four chairs that are turned around as the judges simply listen to the singer’s vocals without making a judgment on their appearance. In Luther’s blind audition, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, and Jennifer Hudson smack their buttons down for an instant “I WANT YOU,” while fourth judge Miley Cyrus stays out for the count. ‘Summertime’ was the tune that Emily Luther decided to sing, using her own jazzy, bluesy twist on the song that worked perfectly for her vocal range. It was a simply stellar performance that played a key role in helping her move onto the next stage of the competition. The video for Emily Luther’s blind audition performance of Summertime totals at over 1M views.
GLITTER IN THE AIR
Only a couple weeks ago Luther performed a jaw-dropping version of ‘Glitter In The Air’which, at that point, helped secure her spot on Team Adam. Shortly after this performance, she was sadly eliminated in the playoff rounds. The video of her performance of ‘Glitter In The Air’ is so new that it only totals at 500,000+ views. Many of the participants in the comment section of that video claim that Luther is not fully recognized for the talent that she possesses and deserves a lot more.
THE VIDEO THAT WENT VIRAL
Before all the fame from ‘The Voice,’ there was a video that went viral of Emily Luther doing a cover of Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’ with the talented Charlie Puth. The original video has been taken down from YouTube for unknown reasons, but another version was uploaded in 2011 that totals at over 3M views. The video was originally from Perez Hilton’s cover contest and won. Sources claim that the video originally came from Charlie Puth’s channel, however, when he began to make it big in the music industry, his label forced him to remove his previous videos and create a new image for him.

Emily Luther: Facts To Know
SHE’S SINGLE, BOYS!
There seems to be no boyfriend in sight for Miss Luther. If anything, she definitely seems to be focusing on pursuing her musical career more than anything else, so good for her! A boyfriend will come when the time is right for this busy bee.
SHE PERMORMED ON ‘ELLEN’
Soon after Emily Luther’s cover of ‘Someone Like You’ with Charlie Puth was released and went viral, she was contacted by ‘The Ellen Show’ to perform on her stage! At the same time, both artists were signed to Ellen’s label eleveneleven… all before ‘The Voice’ even happened!
SHE WAS JUDGED ON THE BASIS OF HER APPEARANCE IN L.A.
As previously mentioned, when Luther moved to L.A. in pursuit of her musical career, she became disillusioned when a team of people passed judgment on Luther based on the way she looked. Her appearance was not thought of as the typical look that a pop star should have, and this ultimately discouraged her for a long time, from her dreams of being a singer. ‘The Voice’ was definitely a blessing in disguise as their means of choosing a contest for their team includes a blind audition.
It’s evident that Emily Luther has been through the ringer of having big dreams, being persuaded to stray from her true passion, and returning back to her old stomping grounds to show the world what she’s made of. If there’s anything that needs to be said, it’s that all the YouTube comments are absolutely right- she needs the recognition she deserves for having a simply stunning voice and not being afraid to be different, despite what others say. Even after being eliminated from ‘The Voice,’ she doesn’t plan on quitting again anytime soon. She continues to sing on her own time at various events and even her own shows! Kudos to Emily!
