Recently, Stirling was honored in Germany with an Echo Music Award. Her international notoriety has only grown since her appearance and boot off “America’s Got Talent.”

Following that, Lindsey was flown by VenTribe to Kenya, where she performed and worked with local Nairobi musicians to cover Rihanna's "We Found Love" song. The behind the scenes video released afterwards reveals that some of the people in the video had never even seen a violin before.

As Stirling’s web site says,

...being voted off 2010’s 'America’s Got Talent,' at the quarter-finals, turned out to be the best thing that’s ever happened to her.”

The experience gave the talented hard worker inspiration to continuing being an amazing musician and proving them all wrong.
