We caught up with Emma and got her point of view. The Claw asked Emma what being in choir is like. Emma answered simply saying that she loved being in the choir. That it’s not as stressful as other classes are. For her, being in choir is actually quite calming. She explains that choir helps her to relax and relieves her of stress.
What do you enjoy about the choir? “Well, I enjoy the music and the connection between me and the others. The music is what connects us all.” Emma explains this with a whole heart and simple words.
We also asked what singing does for her. She replies that singing helps her relax and calms her down. She also claims singing in front of people and crowds helps her self-esteem.
Emma has loved singing ever since she can remember. She explained that in sixth grade she would listen to her teacher Mr. Martin singing, “Swing Low Sweet Chariot”, which was also her favorite song.
