I am so grateful to announce that I will be releasing my second single 'LAYLA' on the 16/03/18. ?Layla touch the hearts of thousands of people and she is a massive inspiration to us all. At age 2, Layla was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. Layla was such a little fighter, and had the most loving family around her throughout every stage. Neuroblastoma is a childhood cancer that not a lot of people know about, this disease really is the devil and should have more funding and awareness around it. My aim is to help raise awareness of Neuroblastoma and raise funds for Neuroblastoma UK charity.? In memory of Layla and children who have sadly passed from Neuroblastoma and all childhood diseases. All proceeds made will go to NeuroblastomaUK. We can fight this together!!
The single will be in poignant memory of young Layla, who was diagnosed with the disease neuroblastoma and unfortunately passed away at the beginning of the year. All proceeds from the single will go towards raising awareness for neuroblastoma and will also be given to charity Neuroblastoma UK, which helps fight against childhood cancer.
Emily also shared a moving Instagram post following Layla’s passing, describing her as a ‘strong little fighter,’ also saying that young Layla ‘will always have a special place in everybody’s hearts.’
