Emma McGann

Finalist in Live Streamer

About Emma McGann

Emma McGann, the British singer-songwriter, shows day in and day out that she is an incredible musician. In November 2017, the YouNow star released her second album, B.R.A.V.E., a collection of songs that “echoes themes of adventure, love and discovery - inspired by personal life stories.” Emma’s massive international fanbase was a factor in YouNow’s selection of her as one of the few musicians to begin working with their new cryptocurrency-backed live stream app Rize. Emma’s abundant talent, which she shares with the world by live streaming for several hours every day, gained her a nomination for the Social Star Award at the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles.
