Emily Williams

Platinum selling recording artist Emily Williams will showcase the hits of Aretha Franklin with her phenomenal talent and true powerhouse voice this November!

Emily Williams launched her eagerly awaited solo career with the dance track ‘Spellbound’ in late 2010 which was recognised globally, this time with a nomination for ‘Australian Female Artist of The Year’. Emily pursued a new musical direction with her second solo ‘You’re Mine’. This soulful single premiered live on Channel 7, instantly receiving rave reviews for it’s soft melody and Emily’s signature killer notes which won her the title as ‘Queens of the high C’s’
Soon after the success of ‘You’re Mine’, Emily heard news of a devastating natural disaster faced in her native country New Zealand that inspired her to record the heartfelt ballad ‘Never Alone.’ This power ballad was set to bring hope to the thousands affected and get much needed funds into Christchurch through NZ Red cross Appeal with all proceeds from the release being donated to the cause.

Emily’s next album ‘Uncovered’ was soon launched but deciding to release it was a big step for her, “I wanted the sound to be true to me, real songs written by me, from the heart but definitely built for the dance floor. I decided on the title ‘Uncovered’ as I feel that this is the first time the world has seen me totally raw. I’m not in front of a band or with the girls and I’m not hiding behind anything, it’s just me up front and personal and I love it!”
True to her vision, its launch received outstanding reviews and prompted a high profile, 25-date, national tour plus major television performances and a major Australian and New Zealand PR tour.

April, 2013 marked the national release of Emily’s hot new track and video clip ‘Get It’ and in pure ‘Urban Diva’ style, achieved viral recognition and over 178,000 views in under than 20 days! The infectious tune was accompanied by a full remix package with offering from Australia, USA, UK & NZ.
Emily soon took things international performing in the UK, France, Ireland, Italy and the UAE touring her UK top-ten, hit duet featuring MTV artist Leroy Reed ‘Can’t Get Enough.’

Soon after, Emily collaborated again, this time with Gaz from MTV’s Geordie Shore, DJ Olabean, and UK X-factor’s boy band sensation ‘The Risk. The single ‘Party Like a Rock star (Up Your Game)’ became the second most downloaded track through Christmas week!
After wrapping up another international tour in 2014, our Urban Diva was welcomed home as the #1 trending topic on Twitter and received a prestigious nomination for ‘Female Of The Year’ ahead of her next musical release.

Developing her musical style and collaborating with European talents lead to the release of ‘The Way It Is’. The single delivered hoards of new fans and shot to #7 on the Australian charts. The success of the single sparked not one but two national tours for the star. The first titled ‘Doll vs. Diva’ saw Emily go head to head on the stage with former Pussycat Doll Melody Thornton. Her second tour for 2015, titled ‘Inspire’ was Emily’s way of giving back to the community. Working with community venues, schools and shopping centres Emily performed, coached and offered industry insights to the next generation for talented performers. Encouraging the next generation has always been a huge motivation for Emily and something she hopes to continue.

From power ballads in concert venues to her dance floor hits in the world’s hottest nightclubs Emily continues to deliver but this time showcasing hits by soul diva Aretha Franklin
