“I am still journeying, I am still finding who I am in this universe, and at this moment my journey has only just begun.”
Check out the interview with Emma Constance exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
Emma Constance: As with most journeys they have a beginning, a moment where you realize that it’s not just about the destination. I was born to entertain. There have been various moments where I have showcased my talents whether it was on stage, in a musical, or even recording a 3 minute music video which I uploaded to YouTube. I am still journeying, I am still finding who I am in this universe, and at this moment my journey has only just begun.
What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
Advice is a hard thing to come across these days, yes we may receive the basics. The list can go on, but the real advice you need is that you can actually be anything you want to be. If you want to fly to the moon, if you focus and work hard you will fly to the moon. So the best advice I can give you all is be true to who you are, remember that we are all just human.
What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
Currently the challenges I face would be getting heard. There are so many platforms out there which showcase various talented individuals. You can be submerged and overloaded with how your sound should appear. I believe that in time I will overcome this challenge and remain true to my sound and identity.
We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
Promoting music is an interesting topic. We have advanced from the face to face meetings to technology and everything being digital. Social media networks play a big part in this. We have avenues that are unlimited, we can reach globally and across a broader audience. The main way I promote and advertise my music is via YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter.
Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans? Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
My city is a global family, we have grown through the year. The fans show an incredible amount of love and support which I am very thankful for. They give you that “you can do it” feeling. Would I still be in the entertainment industry without the fan base? Yes. But man, it would be lonely without them.
Where do you see yourself a year from today?
I have one thing to say to my future self. “A year from now, you may be sitting rereading this interview. But in 2017 you will conquer your fears (even if it’s just one). You will be one step closer to the dream. You will have successfully inspired someone. You will have successfully made some one smile and you will have successfully been you.”
Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
Musically I am inspired by the old classic musicals such as Singing In the Rain. When I am in the recording studio, I think of Nina Simone, Elvis, and Aretha Franklin. Who do I look up to in today’s world? I would have to say I look up to those who innovate and those who will make a difference.
How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
Music today is not classic. Yes, there are some really awesome melodies or lyrical songs coming out. But will they be remembered, is years to come?
