Songs from the heart: Emma Brooke

Nineteen year old singer/songwriter Emma Brooke has a sultry country voice and a passion for music.
A year and a half ago she had the opportunity to make a dream come true when she recorded a song she wrote called “Wishing He Was You.”
“That day caused me to fall in love with recording and being in the studio,” Emma said.
While discussing her next songs Emma’s vocal instructor, Zuke Smith, suggested she write a song about Ty Rockey, whom Zuke had introduced Emma to a few years back. 
One Day…” Emma said, then immediately realized she had the title to her next song.  “I was like ‘Ok gotta go bye!!’ …. I had most of the song [written] in 2-3 hours.”
Emma describes “One Day” as a time capsule of her friendship with Ty: the two of them dancing while Ty stood on her feet, and her dream to one day have Ty on stage with Daughtry.  But even more so is her dream that Ty and others with LCA will see the same results as those whose eyesight has been restored in the first clinical trials.
“The song is my prayer that “One Day”, Ty, his family, and everybody affected by LCA will experience that miracle, too,” Emma said.
Country music calls to Emma as a songwriter because she feels it allows her the space to go deeper into the theme of each song.  Dolly Parton has been a musical influence since she was five years old.
“I get to connect with people through music and that’s one of the best feelings ever,” Emma said.
See Emma play live at Rock for Retinal Research this Saturday, September 6th at 7pm.
“I will be performing “One Day” for the first time,” she said. “Out of all my songs, it is the most important one to me so it’ll definitely be a special moment to sing it live.”

All proceeds from purchasing “One Day” (available on iTunes) go to the non-profit organization for LCA research, Ty’s Eyes.
