Emily Ortego – an 18 year old up and coming singer/songwriter looking to touch the hearts of the people around her with her powerful vocals and smooth guitar playing. This young woman from Opelousas has played guitar since she was 8 years young and has been singing for as long as she can remember. Songwriting became her passion as the years passed, for she needed a way to express herself in a way she felt comfortable and heard. Emily is a sophomore at ULL majoring in Music Business, hoping to have a place in the industry after she earns her degree.
