Emily Ortego - a 21 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, Louisiana has played guitar since she was 8 years young and has been singing for as long as she can remember. She grew up in the church - singing in the choir and altar serving - and is very dedicated about her faith and God’s plan.
Songwriting became her passion as the years passed, for she needed a way to express herself in a way she felt comfortable and heard. She isn't afraid to write real things and show exactly who she is through her music.
After graduating from Opelousas Catholic School in 2017, she started to take her music to the next level. Recently, she was awarded the Golden Ticket during Season 17 of American Idol. The song that sent her to Hollywood, “So I Sing” was written with Kevin Montgomery and Barry Ancelot at the 2018 South Louisiana Songwriters Festival in Lafayette. Her debut album “Love Drought” was produced by Grammy winning producer Tony Daigle and recorded at Dockside Studios in Maurice, LA.
Emily is currently a senior at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette majoring in Music Business, hoping to have a place in the industry after she earns her degree.
