Nashville Country Singer Competes in Netflix "Sing On!"
Nashville Native and Country singer/songwriter, Emily Daniels, competes in Netflix original karaoke competition series "Sing On!". All 8 episodes were released today on Netflix, Daniels can be found in the 8th and final episode titled "Country".
Hosted by the hilarious and talented Tituss Burgess, this eight-episode series is a karaoke-lover’s dream. In each themed episode, six contestants belt out the biggest hits from that genre while being judged by a vocal analyzer comparing their vocal performance to the original artist’s. The more they sing in tune, the more cash they add to a collective jackpot worth up to $60,000. The first round is worth $10,000 and lyrics are randomly assigned so contestants must be ready for anything - the highest scoring contestant moves on, while the remaining singers vote one fellow contestant out. For five more rounds, the stakes get higher and the jackpot gets bigger, and the final two contestants face off in a head-to-head battle to win the grand prize. Perfect for an at-home sing-a-long, viewers of all ages will find themselves off the couch, belting their favorite tunes and having a sing-off of their own.

Daniels is hosting a public virtual premiere party via Netflix Party to watch her featured episode with her on Thursday, September 17th at 7:30PM Central (more info via her website) where she'll answer questions and give some insider scoop on what it was like being on the show.
"Since Sing On! is a brand-new show, I had no idea what to expect when I stepped on the stage. I was jet lagged from traveling to London, but had a rush of adrenaline all day long. Everyone on set was so kind, and made the experience one I’ll never forget! I became friends with the other contestants in my episode, and we’ve all kept in touch since filming, even having a virtual game night thanks to modern technology!"
A trained vocalist, Emily has studied with A-List Vocal Coach Renee Grant-Willams (Carrie Underwood, Faith Hill).
