Emma didn't have a typical childhood. Her father was often deployed as a military helicopter pilot and her parents eventually divorced, but Emma found comfort in music and used it as a way to express herself. She endured bullying in high school and had to change schools, but the move pushed her to join the chapel band and become a worship leader. Emma knew music would be her saving grace and kept with it throughout college. She wants to inspire others to persevere and use her music as a message of hope. Emma currently lives in Nashville, where she works as a personal assistant.
