MATILDA's Emma Howard Releases Michael Mott Original Song 'Fly High' On iTunes

A young Broadway star gets a song all her own!

MATILDA and VIOLET child star Emma Howard exclusively discussed the world premiere of a brand new song written especially for her by notable rising musical theatre and pop songwriter Michael Mott in a recent BroadwayWorld SOUND OFF World Premiere Exclusive, available here, and the song is now available on iTunes here.

Of note, Howard premiered the song live earlier this month at Michael Mott's star-studded concert event THAT WAS THEN, THIS IS HOW at 54 Below.

Howard candidly shared, "The first time I had the song, I was at home and my mom had just gotten it and started playing it and I was just in awe! I was so excited and I just couldn't wait to sing it because, you know when you hear an amazing song and you're just like, "Oh, this is awesome!" and you just want to sing it and perform it? Well, that's what I did!"

Additionally, Howard says, "It reminded me a lot of the songs of the Disney princesses - especially my favorite one of all, Ariel in THE LITTLE MERMAID - and I love those kinds of songs. I love to sing that kind of stuff - great melodies and I definitely think 'Fly High' is a great song like 'Part Of Your World'."

Howard concludes, "Michael wrote me a classic like that and I am so honored to be able to sing it. I couldn't be more excited."
