1.) So Emily how old are you and where are you from?
I’m 18 years old and I am from Michigan!
2.) How old were you when you started singing?
I started singing when I was 2 years old! My Dad has been in many bands and I used to go to practice with him. I would sit there and sing along as he practiced!
3.) Have you always had a passion for music?
Yes! When I was younger I remember practicing every day on my little toy karaoke machine. My family is full of musicians and our family reunions almost always involve karaoke! That has been a really fun way to practice singing in front of people!
4.) Do you have any inspirations or musical influences in your life?
One of my biggest musical influences in my life is definitely my Dad. Besides being a musician, he has also been my biggest supporter. He has helped me grow a lot as a musician and as a person. Watching my Dad play the keyboards and sing when I was little inspired me to become a musician too! He is always helping me to improve and encourages me to take every opportunity!
5.) Have you ever performed at any other place besides on YouTube? If so where and when?
Yes! I have performed at many different places. One of my favorites places was at Disney World when I was 15. I auditioned for the Disney World American Idol Experience and ended up taking 2nd place! There were so many talented people there of all ages and I honestly didn’t expect to make it. It was a wonderful experience that encouraged me to keep following my dreams. I also performed and was interviewed on Fox 2 Local News last July! It was a humbling experience that really helped me to grow as a musician.
6.) When did you start your YouTube channel?
I started YouTube in 2010 and would post a video every once in a while just for fun. Since then, I have been working on making videos more often. I am hoping to post a new video every week!
7.) Do you have any artists in mind that you would love to do collaborations with?
Well I have always really admired Ed Sheeran and One Direction! It would definitely be a dream come true to collaborate with them. I know I probably share that same dream with millions of people. So for now, I will just stick to singing along to their CD’s!
8.) If you could do anything else besides music, then what would it be?
Besides music, my goal is to major in Pediatric Speech Pathology. I think it would be a really rewarding career to be able to help children with speech disabilities! Though balancing music and school is tough right, I still manage to focus on both. I manage to take everyday day by day!
9.) How do you like to spend your free time when you are not in front of the camera?
When I am not in front of the camera or singing, I love to hang out with my friends! They have always been so supportive of me and I really enjoy spending time with them!
10.) Do you have any older or younger siblings?
I am the youngest, but I have 2 older sisters and an older brother! They are all musicians as well, so we have a really fun time singing together!
11.) How would you best describe your style of music?
I enjoy singing many different genres, but I mainly focus on Pop, Country, and Christian music!
12.) Where do you see yourself in the future and any last words?
I am not quite sure what the future will bring, but I hope to be successful in whatever I am doing. Hoping to be married and have a big family too! I will always be singing, but if that path isn’t for me, I am okay with that! My main goal is to have a family, and to just be happy and to make others happy!
