Emily Middlemas recently unveiled her second single ‘Layla,’ a beautiful track in loving memory of a young girl who lost her battle with cancer on 13 January at 9.16 pm.
Speaking about the incredibly emotional track, Emily said:
‘Layla’s family and I would like to raise more awareness of neuroblastoma, which is a childhood cancer, and help raise funds for other families that are currently going through this horrible time. Layla was such a joy to us all and her love for music was so inspiring at such a young age.’
All proceeds raised from the single release will go towards Neuroblastoma UK, a charity which works at finding a cure for the disease, while also working on effective treatments to help those with neuroblastoma.
Neuroblastoma is an aggressive form of childhood cancer, with 1 in 6 of all children’s cancer deaths attributed to it.

‘She was like a butterfly, delicate and so sweet,
A perfect little heartbeat.’
