Emalia has been training her silky voice since she started school, performed in arenas throughout her high school years, and recently graduated from The Talent Development Project, renowned for acts such as Angus and Julia Stone and The McClymonts. When Emalia was 12 she started uploading videos to YouTube where she developed a faithful following and honed her craft.
