Adrian & Emma
Adrian & Emma-Jean Galliard are a father-daughter singing duo based in Johannesburg, South Africa. While they’ve been singing professionally for quite a while, in 2020 they shot to internet fame after videos of them singing The Prayer & Time To Say Goodbye went viral, leading to them being mistaken for the son & granddaughter of Andrea Boccelli.
After South Africa was placed into lockdown, Emma-Jean and Adrian decided to record a version of The Prayer to send to the family and friends they would not be able to see on Easter Sunday. The video was uploaded to Facebook just before lunch and by the end of the day it had 17 000 views. A few days later it was picked up by UK Facebook Page, The Music Man and it quickly climbed to 6 million views.
Adrian & Emma-Jean Music was born, and the pair quickly scrambled to set up a Facebook page & Youtube channel in order to continue our music journey.
The duo attracted a substantial social media following, including 53 000 subscribers on YouTube & 68 000 followers on Facebook.
After repeated requests for an album from the fan base, the pair released their debut album, Just Duet, on 8 October 2021.
