Emmy Rossum is one talented young lady. From singing to acting and even directing she continues to dazzle us with her outstanding performances, incredible voice, and humble attitude towards fame.

Emmy, who was born Emmanuelle Grey Rossum, is an only child, who was raised by her single mother in Manhattan, New York City. She began performing at a very young age and attended the Spence School, a private girls school in Manhattan (also attended by celebs like Gwyneth Paltrow and Kerry Washington) for a number of years before she dropped out to pursue performing opportunities. When she was 15 years old, she received her high school diploma after completing her studies online and later went on to study at Columbia University.

Emmy joined the Metropolitan Opera Children's at the tender age of seven and over the course of five years, she sang on stage with the chorus earning between $5 and $10 a night for her work. It doesn’t seem like much (especially when she relates how the horses in the production earned $150 a night) but it did give her the opportunity to work with great singers such as Plácido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti. During this time she sang in six different languages in more than 20 operas. So where did this affinity and musical talent come from? Well, Emmy often jokes in interviews that her talent is a result of her mom who loved listening to opera’s and classical music when she was pregnant with Emmy.
