Lifestyle - News
Emmy Rossum might be known best for her role in “Shameless,” but her career has been on the rise for a very long time. Her recent television role as the iconic Angelyne in the hit Peacock show of the same name showcases her talents not only as an actress but as a gifted singer.
Rossum started her career as a soprano in the New York theater scene and began appearing on the Metropolitan Opera stage at just 7 years old. She ended up portraying Christine Daaé in the film adaptation of the iconic Broadway musical “The Phantom of the Opera” at 16 years old.
She told Interview magazine in 2013, “I sing everywhere” and recounted how she would sing for local butchers when she was a child to earn a free hotdog. Rossum has recorded two albums, "Inside Out" in 2007 and "Sentimental Journey" in 2013, demonstrating that her singing abilities extend beyond the stage and the screen.
