That’s So Philly, a web site that showcases the musical talents of teens, has launched a new project called “Sing With A Philly Teen,” where musicians and musical adults are paired with teens to sing a cover, an original, or play a musical instrument. The first Sing With A Teen segment features long time local favorite, singer-songwriter Ben Arnold, with singer-songwriter and guitarist Arin Edelstein. According to the That’s So Philly Facebook page:
Arin Edelstein is a sophomore in high school where she performs with the Touring Ensemble (show choir), Up the Octave (girls’ a cappella group), and Select Choir. She has been playing piano since age 5, and guitar since age 8. She plays guitar and sings with the all-girl band Melrose Q. She also enjoys acting, and she currently performs with the Anne Frank Theater Project at The Holocaust Awareness Museum, where she plays Anne Frank. She is planning a career in music and the arts.
Below, listen to Arin and Ben’s original song, “Lonesome Song.”
