|Music has been part of Emma’s life as long as she can remember, so it was only natural that she would forge a solo career when her Spice Girls commitments allowed. Emma released her debut solo album, A Girl Like Me, in 2001 and immediately cracked the top 10. This was followed in 2004 with the 1960s-inspired collection entitled Free Me, which was yet another top 10 smash. Emma's single, What Took You So Long, cruised to the top of the charts and held on to the number one spot for two weeks. "It was an unbelievable feeling," she recalls.|
Leaving her Baby persona behind, Emma was thinking about her approaching 30th birthday when she set about writing her third album, Life In Mono. And Emma's new style of writing reflected her new maturity, incorporating rich orchestral arrangements and beautiful harmonies. "It's like when you write a diary and put everything in it, but when you read it back you’re shocked by how honest you were," she explains.
Next, Emma followed a childhood dream to dance and joined BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing show. "I wanted to do something different and have a bit of a challenge, so it was perfect," she recalls. Emma's graceful ballroom moves were a hit with the audience and judges and she reached the semi final of the competition – the last female dancer to be eliminated.
In August 2007, Emma and long-term boyfriend Jade Jones celebrated the arrival of their first baby, a beautiful boy they have called Beau Lee.
Emma's life couldn't be busier. Whilst relishing in new motherhood, Emma is also very excited to be working with the Spice Girls once again.
