YouTube famous artist Emily Hearn will mix pop and country music when she performs at 7 p.m. on Sept. 24 at 7th Street Underground.

Tylen Elliott, the University Board main stage coordinator, said the UB is starting a new program involving YouTube stars.

“The University Board is starting a new program called the YouTube Series, and Emily is our first performer,” Elliot said.

This new series will feature popular YouTube artists that will perform at Eastern.

Emily Hearn is a 24-year-old singer/songwriter from Georgia.

Hearn has been uploading videos to YouTube for five years, and she has 4,962 subscribers.

Her debut album “Red Balloon” was released in 2012, featuring songs like “Fall,” “Not Walking Away” and “Like Ships Need the Sea.”

Many of Hearn’s songs have been featured on popular television networks such as MTV and the Hub Network.

“Gotta Have Him” was featured on the Hub Network show “Kid President: Declaration of Awesome” and MTV’s “Finding Carter”.

Hearn’s song “Found A Heart” will be featured in Donald Miller’s new novel “Scary Close” as well as on TV shows.

Elliott said she is a young singer songwriter singing about love, which he thinks will appeal to college students.

Elliott also said the UB booked the performance last semester and has just started to promote it.

Hearn will be performing solo and tickets are free of charge.
