Agoraphobic singer goes viral in Asia despite not leaving house for 2 years

A British singer has become an international sensation, despite not leaving her home for two years.

Jemma Pixie Hixon has attracted more than 2.3million hits on YouTube with her covers of famous pop songs. Last month her video got the most views in China.

However, the 20-year-old suffers from agoraphobia, a condition that makes her fear open spaces and crowds and which has kept her locked inside her home for the past two years.

As she dreams of becoming a singer, Jemma turned to the internet and began recording performances and uploading them to YouTube, covering hits by popstars like Cheryl Cole, Beyonce and Justin Bieber.

“For the last two years, I’ve been struggling with agoraphobia,” she said. “I used to perform all the time and I really wanted a way I could continue. I decided to put my songs up on YouTube so I could share them with lots of people, even though I’m still housebound.”

Hixon, who has suffered from panic attacks since she was 6, being a YouTube helps her interact with people.

“In a way, I think being online prepares me for the outside,” she said. “You get a lot of negative comments as well as nice comments.”

“If I was able to get better – and I know it can happen – I would want to sing, because all I have ever wanted to do is to be a recording artist,” reports Daily Mail.
