CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46) - Girl Scouts Hornets’ Nest Council’s Emerson Carter will join Carolina Panthers’ star quarterback, Cam Newton, on “All In With Cam Newton.” at 8 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 30.
Airing on the Nickelodeon Channel, the fourth grader and 5-year Girl Scout will share her passion for music and dreams of recording an album and performing in Nashville.
Emerson is a regular at local coffee houses in the Lake Norman area, performing original music and popular cover songs.
She learned about Newton's show through a Girl Scout email and decided to apply.
“We were so shocked when we got the call that Emerson had been chosen for the show,” said Heather Carter, Emerson’s mom, in a written statement released on Friday. “To be inspired by a leader like Cam and have this opportunity is truly game-changing for Emerson.”
Filming in the fall of 2015, Newton was on a fun-filled mission to help kids discover the hero that lives inside of them. In the series, Newton along with a roster of experts, stepped into the worlds of different kids and took them on a journey to help push them closer to fulfilling dreams.
For Emerson, Newton arranged for a special visit with a Grammy award-winning trio who performed one of her original songs. This opportunity propelled Emerson to conduct a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to record an album which she is currently producing.
During her time at the Hornets’ Nest Council, she participated in a mother-daughter glamping trip in 2016, Scouting for the Cure in 2015 and Discovery After Dark in 2014 and 2015.
