Emel Rasim has stars in her eyes.
Someday, she hopes to see her name in lights.
It is a dream this Palmerton 12-year-old has had for as long as she can remember.
"When I was very young, I would dance a lot and hum. I like to sing so much," says Emel, who likes to be called Emy.
Her mother, Gulnar Rasim, says that ever since Emy got a karaoke machine a few years ago, it seems the microphone is always in her hand. To her and her husband, Reggie, owners of Palmerton Pizza, Emy, is already a star in their eyes.
