Like many great soul singers, Queen Emily David got her start singing as a little girl in Church. As she grew up, life got in the way of her dreams. Raising her daughters as a single mother meant Emily's musical aspirations had to be put on hold. When she turned 40, Emily experienced an epiphany and realized that it was time to stop dreaming and start acting, which led her to the "America's Got Talent" auditions. 1
Queen Emily was one of the Music Acts in the Vegas round. She was sorted into the "Female Singers" category. Her performance in Episode 308 consisted of singing Chaka Khan's "I'm Every Woman." Emily's audition was strong enough for the judges to include her in the Top 60 shortlist and to later send her to the Top 40 Quarterfinals in Episode 309.
Queen Emily's Part 2 Quarterfinals performance in Episode 311 consisted of singing Diana Ross's "Ain't No Mountain High Enough." Emily received enough votes to be sent to the Semifinals in Episode 312 instead of Kazual.
Queen Emily's Top 10 performance in Episode 317 consisted of singing Jennifer Holliday's "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going." Emily received enough votes to be sent to the Final 5 in Episode 318 instead of Joseph Hall.
After the Show
