“When you hear someone very young sing well, it is impressive. But when you hear someone interpret a song in a way that moves you, it doesn’t matter how old the performer is. That’s what happens when Emma sings. People within earshot stop and ask, “Who is that voice?” Now 15 years old, she has been an impressive vocalist for several years already" - Meaford Live Music”
