Emily Summerhays was born in Waterloo, IA on April 13th, 1987. She always dreamed of being a performer. She performed in grade school talent shows, was an active member of both band and choir 5th-12th grade, and had lead roles in her high school musicals. At the age of 16, she started competing in pageants to showcase her talents. Since then, she has held multiple state and national titles. Emily soon discovered her niche in the music business and started recording her album entitled "Reflection" which is now available for purchase on iTunes. Since the release of the album she has performed all over the country. She performed with Chris Brown on tour in Virginia, at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem, many schools throughout the Midwest, and a multitude of other venues. Emily has a real passion for being on stage and is still performing her music and competing in pageants to this day. She is also planning on recording another album to release to the world.
