Emily has a daughter named Asia.
If Emily was ever to collaborate with her sister, Lavina, they would record a gospel album, rather than pop.
Emily was a forklift truck operator prior to appearing on Australian Idol.
Emily was the runner up in Australian Idol in 2005.
'The Young Divas' pulled out of a tour where they were to support the band, Westlife, in February 2007. Their manager claimed that as the group was so popular now, they did not need to be a support act.
In 2006 'The Young Divas' released their debut single, This Time I Know It's For Real.
Emily: (on her debut album being released in November 2006) It feels like a big achievement at this stage. The album was really recorded in between tour dates and, on the days we weren't performing, we'd run into the studio and get a few hours done.
Emily: (on why curves are fabulous) I've got curves because I'm a mum. I've got love handles on my hips. But I'm a normal mum. I've got a mum's body. I'm not perfect but it's a positive thing - it's nature.
Emily: (on surgery) My bum's very flat, so I try to hide it as much as I can. I wear pull-in knickers. I'd like a bit of surgery just to make my butt pert, like Beyonce's.
Emily: (asked if "The Young Divas" will be around in 10 years' time) I hope I'm the first pacific Islander to win international acclaim as a singer.
Emily: (on The Young Divas) Paulini is quiet and beautiful and she keeps the peace. If we were all boofheads, it wouldn't work.
