LOS ANGELES, CA (WIFR) -- You may know Emily Bear as being a piano prodigy but now her work can be heard on the big screen. The Rockford native wrote and sang two songs for the new Warner Bros. movie Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase.
Emily wrote both songs specifically for the movie which can be heard at the beginning and end of the film. She went to the premiere of the movie this past weekend and says hearing her songs on the big screen is a major check off her bucket list. The first song featured is called "more Than Just a Girl", which Emily says is an upbeat, pop-style song that highlights women empowerment. She also credits the people from Rockford as being her biggest supporters.
"Rockford has been like my biggest support system since I was little, like it's amazing. Being able to have my music in a movie, that's been portraying that girl power message for so many generations and years, is amazing. So I'm so happy to be able to be a part of a project like this,” said Emily Bear.
Emily has a few shows coming up she's preparing for and she's also releasing a CD later this spring that features her singing. You can check out her music in the Nancy Drew movie that hits theaters this Friday.
