Australian singer/songwriter Emma Sophina was on the now-famous U.S. Airways Flight 1549, which was headed from New York to Charlotte but ended up on the Hudson River. Sophina was on her way here to visit some friends. All 155 passengers from that plane were lucky, and she may prove to be the luckiest of all.

The 26-year-old has been struggling to break through in the music biz, but since recording "Send Another Prayer," a tribute to the January 15 plane crash, she may have found her way in. Last week she was signed to Decca Records/Universal Music Group. And she's on somewhat of a media tour this week--you can see her tomorrow morning on FOX & Friends and tomorrow night on Larry King Live.

Learn more about Sophina by visiting her Myspace page: She has a soulful, slightly folk sound, and a pretty good voice. I like her song "Wake Up," which you can hear a snippet of on Myspace. "Send Another Prayer" became available on iTunes today.
