The world is continually being introduced to the amazing talent that Australia has to offer. Emma Sophina is no exception to this with her latest release "Golden", a song about seeing the beauty in the world around us and within us.
Music has been a part of Emma's life from an early age, from seeing her dad play bass and sing, to dressing up as Karen Carpenter for talent shows. "I've always been drawn to the melodies and rhythms in music and the journey to which it takes you, and I wanted to write and sing about my own journeys," says Sophina.
The inspiration behind "Golden" comes from a life of overcoming and rising above the circumstances surrounding her life, most noteworthy, being one of the survivors of the plane crash in the Hudson River in New York City in 2009. "It definitely gives you a new perspective on life and how precious each moment is", she says. "That's why I wrote "Golden". The first verse of the song says, 'Did I miss my chance?', because I have felt that way so many times, and I know I'm not alone in that. I was given another chance, a new life, and I want to make it worth something, something golden."
And that's what happened. She moved to the United States, signed on with a major record label, and recorded her first EP. Opportunities came to sing on such shows as Larry King, The CBS Early Show and she had various television appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Good Morning America, Extra and more. Emma also began speaking at events, encouraging people to live their best lives. "I believe we go through experiences like these in order to bring people together and show them their life is valuable." And she didn't stop there, she began teaching music and songwriting to a new generation.
Now living in Nashville, Emma has begun a new chapter in her passion to bring a positive message of life and love to a new audience, with the fresh release of her pop country hit 'Golden'.
