The DeKalb County Fire Department’s Annual Awards Banquet was held Saturday at the DeKalb County Complex Auditorium. The evening began with a delicious meal and entertainment from EmiSunshine, a 12-year old East Tennessee prodigy who has captured the nation’s attention as a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. She has performed on the Grand Ole Opry, the Today Show and has been compared to the likes of Taylor Swift, mixed with a little bit of Dolly Parton, Alison Krauss, or members of the Carter family.
