Emilie- Jeanne Morin, 20 years old, Montreal Canada. I've been inspired by Paul McCartney and The Beatles since my mom knew she was pregnant with me. Paul was there every single day and he still is. I've never been so lucky in my whole life to have found someone like him, I thank my parents for that particular matter every day. See her video below. :)

Lisa Marie Glive..30 Residence: Montreal, Canada I've been singing professionally since the age of 8, when I started in a volunteer entertainment group that traveled across Montreal to various hospitals and senior citizens' homes. Prior to that, I was raised in a house where playing rock 'n' roll records was a constant. My parents were baby boomers and my siblings were nearly two decades older than me, which refined the music I was exposed to.
I think Paul McCartney may have been some of the first words I ever uttered. I developed a strong preference for The Beatles, particularly McCartney at the tender age of 3, and remember owning Pipe Of Peace on 45 vinyl and playing it endlessly, which drove my parents batty. I spent my days drowning myself in his music, and slowly began to replace regular speech with singing. I still have cassette tapes I recoded from as young as 5 years old on which I spent the day singing and talking about my hero.
I never let go of that passion, and it keeps me singing to this day. Why The Beatles? Why Paul? Because they resonate love and all things positive in a world shadowed by too much hatred and negative energy. From a young age, I favored beautiful melodies, and Paul was the Mozart of the 20th century in terms of melody.
