Emily lays down rock/pop anthem

SIXTH FORM singer Emily White has had chance to lay down three songs at a local recording studio.

SIXTH FORM singer Emily White has had chance to lay down three songs at a local recording studio.

The 17-year-old won Carnival’s Got Talent last summer, and as part of the prize had chance to record at Birmingham-based Robannas.

Last month she did just that, performing three songs – including Misguided, a rock/pop anthem that she’d written herself.

The Solihull School pupil follows in the footsteps of Franz Ferdinand, Duran Duran and Thin Lizzy - some of the artists who have used the studio.

“It was a great experience recording the songs and getting to see how the process worked,” said Emily.

“I’ve posted the songs on the internet and hope they get noticed by the right people.”

Emily won Carnival’s Got Talent last June and she’s encouraging other budding singers to enter this year’s event. Heats will be taking place later this month, with the finalists going head-to-head at this year’s Solihull Carnival.

“It’s really worth it, there’s a lot of people who’d like to enter and maybe don’t have the guts.

“To perform on stage like that was incredible, it was the first time that a lot of my friends had seen me perform.”

Emily, who has also performed with St Augustine’s Musical Theatre Co, said she was considering studying music at university.
