With a love like that,
It lights the whole sky.”

Biography from her Facebook page
So, what happens when a classically trained young girl from a tiny Michigan town faces big hardships in the Big Apple and then enters the fast-paced pop music world of Los Angeles?

Well, EMM has taken everything she's learned and brought it into this landscape, crafting some unforgettable and uplifting songs along the way. In short, she's ready for her own kind of revolution.

EMM couldn't help but immerse herself in music. Born to a classical harpist mother and opera singer father, she discovered what she would do for the rest of her life very early on. That decision even preceded her birth. "My mom played a five-hour gig on the day I was due," her eyes light up. "I was literally right up against her harp, and I was on stage with her hundreds of times before I was even born. I think that's why performing feels so natural."

Between piano lessons and actually writing her own songs, a six-year-old EMM would fall asleep in orchestra pits, while waiting for her father to finish teaching at the esteemed Interlochen Center for the Arts. Her parents imparted a deep technical understanding and appreciation for all things classical as she picked up composition by herself. The Norris clan spent two Christmases performing a family show on Regent Seven Seas cruises giving the kids a familiarity with the stage. However, she had a pivotal revelation in 2006.

"I saw BeyoncĂ© perform 'Ring the Alarm' on the VMAs," she recalls. "She totally owned the stage. It was that moment when I decided that would be me someday. I was immediately obsessed with becoming the absolute best performer possible.”
Keeping up with her training, she simultaneously fell in love with everybody from Mariah Carey to Whitney Houston and developed her own voice. As a result, she approaches music from a different angle, possessing the ability to compose every aspect of a song from the instrumentation to the lyrics. Winning numerous state competitions for classical music, EMM picked up a guitar and taught herself how to play. Every bit of money she earned she saved and put towards professional studio time. She even managed to not only learn the recording program Logic but to become extremely well-versed in it. It got to the point where everybody in the studio affectionately referred to the budding artist and producer as "the prodigy kid".

Through family friends with industry ties, she made her formal entry into the music business in 2009 at merely 16-years-old. Being promised various deals and opportunities, she finished high school early and moved to New York under the auspices that her career would "go big". However, nothing went as planned. Promises were broken, and disappointment struck as she tirelessly worked on music. She sacrificed constantly and constantly only to be greeted by real hardship.

The harsh reality of the Big Apple hit her hard as she even was terrifyingly mugged one winter evening deep in Harlem a block from where she lived at the time. She had no choice but to hole up at home and focus on writing songs. Channeling into those trials and tribulations, the music provided a catharsis for her, possessing to power and strength. She'd make trips by herself to meet and work with different producers including Tim and Bob and Jason Gilbert everywhere from Miami and Chicago to Washington D.C. by herself. The dream hadn't materialized yet though.

"I had my heart broken more than a few times," she affirms. "I always knew deep down inside that I was supposed to keep going, so I did."

In 2012, she traded a cold New York for sunny Los Angeles. At the urging of her mom, she made a short performance video. It eventually was circulated amongst numerous high-level industry executives and tastemakers.

After moving to Los Angeles to build her team, EMM crafted her first full mixtape, “Burning in the Dark.” She took on the task of doing all of the producing, songwriting, vocal arrangement, recording and mixing for the project. She built and performed several shows, including playing the Staples Center, and Dodger Staduim. She now continues to build her social media and has millions of views on her empowering and inspiring videos. In typical EMM fashion, she still fights to turn her struggles and hardships into stories of empowerment and encouragement for her fans. After observing EMM’s talent in action, one thing is clear: its only the beginning of the “EMMpire.” Her best, most powerful, and most engaging work is still ahead. To EMM, when you ask the difficult question, “What would you do if you weren’t afraid?” her answer appears to be, “Just watch.”

I hope you like this selection as much as I do and have a blessed evening or morning. Thank you for your continued support. Remember music is a language and these are my thoughts tonight.

Peace and Love always
Diana Mary Sharpton

Ariana Cordoso "I Have Nothing" #MUSICVIDEO #DianaMarySharpton #DMS

Old Man & Woman "In-Love"
Introduction:
To hear never-heard sounds,
To see never-seen colors and shapes,
To try to understand the imperceptible
Power pervading the world;
To fly and find pure ethereal substances
That are not of matter
But of that invisible soul pervading reality.
To hear another soul and to whisper to another soul;
To be a lantern in the darkness
Or an umbrella in a stormy day;
To feel much more than know.
To be the eyes of an eagle, slope of a mountain;
To be a wave understanding the influence of the moon;
To be a tree and read the memory of the leaves;
To be an insignificant pedestrian on the streets
Of crazy cities watching, watching, and watching.
To be a smile on the face of a woman
And shine in her memory
As a moment saved without planning.
~ Dejan Stojanovic

Is love pointless? I don’t know the answer to this question for myself or for anyone. Being in-love is so different from loving someone. You love a person by choice however being “In-Love” is an event that just happens. At least this is my personal perspective and to codify this point of view, I am going to include an article below about the differences between loving someone and being in-love with someone.

 “8 Differences Between Loving Someone & Being In Love” by Holly Harris http://www.thebolde.com/8-differences-loving-someone-being-in-love/

“1. LOVING SOMEONE IS A CHOICE, BEING IN LOVE ISN’T.
You can choose to love someone. You can decide you will see their best qualities, appreciate them for who they are, and be a supportive partner to them. You can also choose to stop loving someone, to walk away and forget about them. Being in love is not a choice. It’s something that can happen without your intention or consent, and it’s not something you can walk away from. If you leave, you’ll take the feeling of being in love with you.

2. LOVING SOMEONE MEANS WANTING THEM TO DO WELL, BEING IN LOVE MEANS PUTTING THEM FIRST.
Of course you want the person you love to do well, but are you actually prepared to make the sacrifices necessary to make that happen? When you’re in love, you put each other’s needs first because your happiness is linked to theirs. Maybe he chips in a little extra for rent while you get through graduate school, or maybe you take extra morning walk shifts with the dog because he loves to sleep in. When you put each other’s needs first, you accomplish more than when everyone’s fending for themselves.

3. LOVING SOMEONE IS FLEETING, BEING IN LOVE IS FOREVER.
Love can literally end at any moment. He can do something annoying, or you get in a bad fight, or you’re kind of in a funk, then BAM. You don’t love him anymore. Being in love isn’t that fickle. It stays through the fights, the lulls, and the full blown existential crisis. When the honeymoon phase is over and life gets a little more routine, only the relationship where you are actually in love will be a happy one. You don’t need constant excitement, because your feelings are real without it.

4. LOVING SOMEONE MEANS NEEDING THEM AROUND, BEING IN LOVE MEANS NEEDING THEM TO BE WHERE THEY ARE HAPPY.
When you love someone, you always want them to be around. You crave them. You want them to be with you more than anything. When you are in love, you want them to have a happy balanced life, which means sometimes spending time away from you. You want them to have time out with the guys, or alone time, or time to pursue some hobbies without you. Being happy doesn’t equal being together all the time.

5. LOVING SOMEONE IS A RUSH, BEING IN LOVE IS STEADY STREAM OF EMOTIONS.
Loving someone can be the greatest high, but it also comes with low lows. Being in love is a steadier stream of happiness, but it’s more overall happiness in the long run. The roller coaster of loving someone can never last, and bad lows can be devastating. The intensity of the highs and lows is why so many people mistake loving with being in love, but the real deal will never make you feel like you are crashing and burning.

6. LOVING SOMEONE IS ABOUT HOW THEY MAKE YOU FEEL, BEING IN LOVE IS ABOUT HOW YOU MAKE THEM FEEL.
A common answer people give when asked why they love someone is, “Because of how they make me feel.” That’s a valid answer, but if it’s all about how you feel, then you probably aren’t actually in love. Loving someone means you are only concerned with how he makes you feel loved, special, or appreciated. Being in love means you worry about how to make him feel loved as well, because that’s equally as important to you.

7. LOVING SOMEONE IS ABOUT OWNERSHIP, BEING IN LOVE IS A PARTNERSHIP.
When you love someone, you want them to be yours. Labelling them is important. You need them to commit to being your boyfriend and say they’re yours. Being in love is about wanting to be each other’s. You give yourself as much as you get. You two are a partnership, a team, and no one belongs to anyone.

8. LOVING SOMEONE IS AN UPHILL BATTLE, BEING IN LOVE IS EFFORTLESS.
You will hear people say, “It shouldn’t be this hard.” And they’re right, it shouldn’t.  Fighting and scrabbling to stay connected and keep the spark alive isn’t being in love. You may love this person, but it will inevitably turn into a situation where you feel like you’re just forcing it. I’m not saying that a relationship with someone you’re in love with will always be easy, just that the feeling of being in love will be there without any effort. Some days will be difficult. Some days will seem to take everything you have. But at the end of the hard days, or the hard months, you will always feel that you are in love with each other. That feeling will never be work or effort.”

So what is my point? Well this morning, I heard a brilliant classic song that brought this emotion back into the front view for me and I wanted to share the song, the words and the emotion I felt when listening to it. The song is titled “I Have Nothing” by Whitney Houston and it is all about being “In-Love”. I have listed the lyrics below for your viewing. Then I ask have you ever been “In-Love”? If you have and still are you will understand where I am coming from. I am still very much “In-Love” but then that’s not a choice, is it?

The singer is not Whitney Houston but an unknown artist by the name of Ariana Cardoso. She is beyond brilliant and sings this song with such passion, perfect pitch and balance. I personally think it is better than Whitney’s rendition LOL!

Who is she? I cannot find anything about her other than this video was posted on YouTube’s Rock The Web.

"I Have Nothing"
Share my life
Take me for what I am
'Cause I'll never change
All my colors for you

Take my love
I'll never ask for too much
Just all that you are
And everything that you do

I don't really need to look
Very much further
I don't want to have to go
Where you don't follow
I will hold it back again
This passion inside
Can't run from myself
There's nowhere to hide

Don't make me close one more door
I don't want to hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don't walk away from me
I have nothing, nothing, nothing
If I don't have you, you, you, you, you

You see through
Right to the heart of me
You break down my walls
With the strength of your love

I never knew
Love like I've known it with you
Will a memory survive
One I can hold on to?

I don't really need to look
Very much further
I don't want to have to go
Where you don't follow
I will hold it back again
This passion inside
I can't run from myself
There's nowhere to hide
Your love I'll remember forever

Don't make me close one more door
I don't want to hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don't walk away from me
I have nothing, nothing, nothing

Don't make me close one more door
I don't want to hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don't walk away from me
No, don't walk away from me
Don't you dare walk away from me
I have nothing, nothing, nothing
If I don't have you, you
If I don't have you, oh, oh

I hope you like this selection as much as I do and have a blessed evening or morning. Thank you for your continued support. Remember music is a language and these are my thoughts tonight.

Peace and Love always
Diana Mary Sharpton
