Stirling is also a YouTube sensation: her music video "Crystallize" finished as the eighth-most watched video of 2012, and her cover version of "Radioactive" with Pentatonix won Response of the Year in the first YouTube Music Awards in 2013.
Her YouTube channel had, as of March 2014, more than four million subscribers and 560 million total views.Early lifeStirling was born in Santa Ana, California, but spent a portion of her childhood in Gilbert, Arizona and graduated from Mesquite High School.

As part of her experience with Stomp on Melvin, Stirling wrote a solo violin rock song, and her performance helped her to win the state title of Arizona's Junior Miss and claim the Spirit Award in the America's Junior Miss Finals competition.
Stirling was also a member of Charley Jenkins Band for about a year.CareerIn 2010, at the age of 23, Stirling was a quarter-finalist on season five of America's Got Talent, where she was described as a "hip hop violinist".
Stirling's performances were dubbed "electrifying" by the judges, and won the acclaim of the audience, but after she attempted to step up the dance level in her quarter-final performance, judge Piers Morgan told her: "You're not untalented, but you're not good enough to get away with flying through the air and trying to play the violin at the same time." Sharon Osbourne commented: "You need to be in a group.
What you're doing is not enough to fill a theater in Vegas." In her blog, Stirling confided: "I was devastated at the results ...
It was painful, and a bit humiliating; however, I had to relearn where it was that I drew my strength." Stirling decided to continue to embrace her unique style of performance, promoting herself on the Internet.
In a 2012 interview she remarked: "A lot of people have told me along the way that my style and the music I do ...
is unmarketable.
But the only reason I'm successful is because I have stayed true to myself."Shortly after her performance on America's Got Talent, cinematographer Devin Graham (DevinSuperTramp) contacted her in hopes of making a YouTube video together.
They agreed to shoot a music video for her song, "Spontaneous Me".
It was filmed the week of May 9, 2011.

So this is kind of a fulfillment – it's funny to say, but this is something I've always wanted to do."The way she impressed the judges on America's Got Talent, apart from her mixing hip-hop and classical music on the violin, was by incorporating dancing while playing the violin, something that she does on her tours and her official music videos.
On a live-chat Stirling explained: "It is very unnatural to dance while playing the violin.
I had to practice so hard to learn how to do it but now it is part of my expression and it comes naturally.
I have to know a song perfectly before I can even begin to move.
Once I know a song really well I can then have fun dancing." Not only in her performances, but also with her music, dancing made a huge impact: "I loved dance music so I started with that and wrote transcendence, Electric daisy and spontaneous me."In October 2013, Stirling announced she would take part in season three of Dance Showdown, a dance competition web series created by DanceOn where the winner is awarded US$50,000.
