The Galliard family first noticed Emma’s singing talent when she sang a solo in church at the age of 7.

Adrian & Emma-Jean started singing together at various church and charity functions in 2018, when Emma was 9 years old. Together with their friend, Annette Shawe, they were invited to sing at a Cuppa for CANSA event. Emma-Jean stole the show with her rendition of I See the Light and her participation in the classic Time To Say Goodbye, which Annette had arranged for all three of them to sing. Emma-Jean was hooked on music, and the duo started arranging regular soirees in our garden for friends and family.

After South Africa was placed into lockdown, Emma-Jean and Adrian decided to record a version of The Prayer to send to the family and friends they would not be able to see on Easter Sunday. They uploaded The Prayer to Facebook just before lunch and by the end of the day it had 17 000 views. A few days later it was picked up by UK website, The Music Man and it quickly climbed to 6 million views and Adrian & Emma-Jean Music was born.

Here are the lyrics:

When I Follow My Heart ©2008 Brenda M Lane, ASCAP Publishing Company: Lane and Associated Enterprises Publishing (ASCAP)

When I trust, If I trust, I’ll see Your hand 
Guiding me, perfectly into Your purpose 
I will believe in Your Word

Promises that You give, Anchor my heart 
When I trust, Yes, I’ll trust, I’m in Your keeping 
Teach me to follow my heart to Your heart


Chorus: 
When I follow my heart, When I follow my dreams 
When I look to the sky, I am stirred to believe 
That Your infinite plan, Holds a journey for me 
When I follow my heart, When I follow my dreams 
I can soar on Your wings

Wandering and wondering Where I should be 
Answers to questions so far from me 
But there in the nearness of what makes me, me 
was the vision I’d need (Chorus)


Bridge: 
Something inside me pulled at my heart 
Never before have I felt so alive 
Oh and all my convictions were right from the start 
When I followed my heart

When I trust, If I trust, I’ll see Your hand 
Guiding me, perfectly into Your purpose 
Teach me to follow my heart, to Your heart!

When I follow my heart, When I follow my dreams 
When I look to the sky, I am stirred to believe 
That Your infinite plan, Holds a journey for me 
When I follow my heart, When I follow my dreams 
I can soar on Your wings 
When I follow my heart, When I follow my dreams 
I can soar on Your wings.
