Biography

While with her parents, Emily received a email from Warner Bros. stating in Emily's words, "Can you sing this song? Please keep it to yourself and these are the lyrics but do not share it with anyone. " Thinking nothing of it she was close to declining the offer because she did not know much about it. One of her parents told her that she should insist and take the offer. While reading the lyrics she was surprised to see some familiar words such as, Hippogriff, Billywig, and Phoenix. She googled the words and found out that she was correct and that it reminded her of "Harry Potter". She thought to herself, "this might be nothing but will be something". She took to her gut feeling and recorded her singing the lyrics and sent it back and hoped for the best. Soon after, she found out that the lyrics were written by J. K. Rowling and she was in shock.[1]

The lyrics reminded her of a "French regret song."
