She performed the song Up, Over Through and Under which won her the Zecchino d’Argento prize.

7. Anti-Social Media
Before she acted in the film Nerve, Emily was somewhat averse to social media. She said “Before the film, I didn’t even have an Instagram,” she told us. “I was like a completely anti-Internet pagan. Everyone would try to explain to me why it’s an important piece of [the industry]. I was like, ‘No, no, no. I’m going to do it the old-fashioned way. I refuse.'”
However, she currently enjoys a huge fan base and following on social media.
