7 Questions with Emmy: Mat and Savanna Shaw

  Published at  | Updated at

It’s time for 7 Questions with Emmy and today she is speaking with Mat and Savanna Shaw.

The Shaws are a daddy-daughter duo from Utah who rose to prominence during the COVID-19 quarantine. Savanna, eager to keep in touch with her music friends, started a music social media account. Normally a shy and private teenager, she was nervous to sing her first song by herself, so she asked her dad to join her in singing “The Prayer.”

After that video went viral, Mat and Savanna continued releasing duets on social media and streaming platforms, with singles charting in both the US and UK. They quickly garnered a worldwide following resulting in over a half-million YouTube subscribers.

In October, their first album “Picture This” debuted at #1 on the iTunes Pop Chart. They have since taken the #1 spot on multiple Billboard music charts. They recently announced a holiday album entitled “Merry Little Christmas” and will perform a virtual concert later this month.
