Powerhouse vocalist and NBC’s America’s Got Talent Season 9 finalist Emily West has signed with Sony Music Masterworks’ Portrait imprint. West will release a two-track digital single on Dec. 2, including her rendition of Sia’s “Chandelier,” which stunned audiences during her performance of the song on the televised talent competition. The digital single will also include the Christmas classic “Santa Baby.”

West’s full-length debut album will be released in spring 2015, in a unique partnership between West, Pledge Music, and Sony. West recently completed a success online fundraiser to complete her upcoming album via Pledge Music. That album will be released on the Portrait imprint, though Pledge Music fans will received additional personalized bonus tracks and exclusive content.

“As America has already seen, Emily West is an exceptional talent with a bright career ahead of her,” says Chuck Mitchell, SVP, Sony Music Masterworks, U.S. “Her appearances on AGT have already defined her as an important new interpreter of great songs both new and classic, and she’s equally impressive on her own material. We’re delighted to be helping her launch this new phase of her recording career.”

West moved to Nashville at age 18 and was later signed with Capitol Nashville, where she released the singles “Rocks In Your Shoes” and “Blue Sky” (featuring Keith Urban). She later transitioned to New York City.

Sony Masterworks comprises Masterworks Broadway, Masterworks, OKeh, Portrait, RCA Red Seal and Sony Classical imprints.
