About Emerson

Emerson is an actor, singer, and dancer who made her Broadway debut in Violet starring Sutton Foster at the American Airlines Theatre in April 2014, after performing in the one night only concert version of Violet the previous summer at Encores! City Center to rave reviews in the same role. Emerson was honored with the 2014 Theatre World Award in recognition of her debut performance on Broadway. 


She first discovered her love of singing at the age of 6 when she performed a duet with her mom at church. Soon after she started to also show interest in acting and dancing, and she has been pursuing her dreams of performing ever since. Emerson won the title of Miss Access Broadway in 2011.


Emerson attends a private school to allow her time to train in lessons, classes, and workshops geared toward honing her skills in acting, singing and dancing. Emerson dances ballet, pointe, jazz, tap, modern, and hip-hop styles. She also dabbles in acro and cirque classes whenever her schedule allows. In addition to theater, Emerson is actively auditioning for film, television, and commercial opportunities.
