America’s Got Talent finalist and Portrait Records/Sony Music Masterworks recording artist Emily West has just released her new music video for “Chandelier,” the Sia song she wowed America with on AGT. It debuted on Yahoo.com.

Today, debuting right here exclusively at Blogcritics, is brand-new video of Emily West talking about filming that “Chandelier” video.

“Any time you put me in front of a fan, watch out.”

In Spring 2015 West will follow up her two-song EP, which featured her sultry take on “Chandelier” and Christmas favorite “Santa Baby,” with her debut full-length album All For You, available for preorder now.

West dazzled audiences throughout her America’s Got Talent season, singing iconic hits like “Nights In White Satin” by the Moody Blues and “You Got It” by Roy Orbison, which she transforms into grand ballads, both of which will be included on the new album. She also sang a duet on the show with Cyndi Lauper, with whom she’d worked on Celebrity Apprentice a few years before.

The Iowa native has been pursuing her music career since moving to Nashville in 2000 at the age of 18. She signed as a songwriter with publishing company Warner-Chappell, then signed with Capitol Nashville as an artist. Now relocated to New York City and with her new Portrait Records/Sony Music Masterworks deal and upcoming tour, her future looks brighter and brighter.
