“My dream is to sing…So many times I thought, it would never happen for me. Then I would go and look in the mirror and say, “Why not me?”
”Like many great soul singers, Queen Emily got her start singing as a little girl in church. And even though her talent was apparent to everyone who heard her sing, as she grew up, life got in the way of her dreams. Raising her daughters as a single mother meant Emily's musical aspirations had to be put on hold. When she turned 40, Emily experienced an epiphany and realized that it was time to stop dreaming and start acting, which led her to the "America's Got Talent" auditions. Queen Emily is a true testament to how far you can go if you work hard and never stop believing in your dreams. She challenges us all to ask “ Why not me?”
