In late 2010 Emily launched her eagerly awaited solo career with the track 'Spellbound' which saw her flying solo for the first time since Idol. Emily's second solo release 'You're Mine' hinted of a new musical direction; this soulful single received rave reviews and debuted at #22 on the independent charts solidifying her title as "Queen of the High C's".
Soon after the success of You're Mine, Emily heard news of the devastation in her native country New Zealand. Emily quickly stepped into the studio to record a heartfelt ballad "Never Alone". This power ballad was set to bring hope to the thousands devastated by the natural disaster and of course get much needed funds into Christchurch through the NZ appeal with all proceeds from the release being donated to the cause.
It's now been 8 years since the country first fell in love with Emily in Australian Idol, and after a long journey, she is finally ready to release her album to the world. Deciding to release an album was a big step for Emily, 'I wanted the sound to be true to me, no cover tracks, just real songs written by me for the dance floor and from the heart' After working with some amazing international talent Emily has crafted the eagerly awaited 'Uncovered'Emily Williams sings the iconic hits of Whitney Houston, Elvis Presley, Amy Winehouse and Michael Jackson in this stunning show. Four of Emily's biggest inspirations left this world too early but they will forever live on through their music. This show is a celebration of the legacy they leave behind, from soulful renditions of their beautiful hits to high-energy contemporary takes on the classics that made them stars. The show can be done with a full band or to tracks with an acoustic section with Emily's guitarist.
