Girl Scout plays cello for Red Kettle Campaign

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - You've seen the bell ringers out in front of stores across East Tennessee but you probably haven't seen this.

Girl scout Emily Walker really got people digging into their pockets-
by playing the cello while manning the Salvation Army Red Kettle.

She played a cello in front of the Northshore Kroger Friday.

"I'm playing the cello for the Salvation Army because it's Christmas and to get in the Christmas spirit and give to people who don't have as much as you do," Emily told us.

Emily also said she's still trying to decide if she'll play anywhere else.
