History & Experience of Note

Singing has been Emma’s passion since she was a young girl, starting as a soloist in school choirs and musical productions. In 1997 at the age of 16 she was awarded Runner-Up position in the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Choir Girl Of The Year Competition (see Gallery), which was judged by Sir Harry Secombe and Henry Kelly. It was in this competition that she had the pleasure of meeting and successfully competing against Katherine Jenkins.

This achievement opened up a coveted opportunity for Emma to become a member of The National Youth Choir Of Great Britain, which she sang with for five years also participating in the South Pacific World Tour (see Gallery), performing in some magnificent venues in Cape Town and Port Elizabeth-South Africa, Perth and Cairns-Australia, Auckland and Christchurch-New Zealand, Hawaii and California-USA.

Emma’s formal training at the world-renowned Italia Conti Academy Of Theatre Arts in London broadened her style of singing aside from choral and classical repertoires. It was here that she trained to sing for the stage, for musical theatre and soft pop. The demanding tuition at Conti’s also developed Emma’s love of dance moulding her into an all-round performer.

With many invitations over the years to sing at the Wedding Ceremonies of family and friends, it was a natural development for Emma to pursue it further and to set up her Wedding Singing business. Bookings started to flood in after an interview with Emma was published in the glossy Condé Nast ‘Brides’ magazine – the world’s best selling bridal title (see Gallery to read the interview).

Emma is proud to have been singing at Weddings and special occasions for sixteen years. When she founded her website in 2006 there were only a handful of competitors, unlike today with wedding singers now ten-a-penny on the internet! But Emma has stood the test of time and remains to be on Google’s top page-rank for web-searches ‘Wedding Singer London; Essex; Surrey’ and the home counties
