Belinda Emmett song releasedBy Erin McWhirter

November 16, 2006 08:01pm

A HEART-wrenching ballad sung by the late Belinda Emmett has been released on the eve of her funeral.

Less Than Perfect, gives a personal insight into Emmett's private life and was written while she battled cancer.

"Have you ever wondered, what it would be like, to be somebody else, with their perfect, perfect life?" she sings.

"But it's mine to carry, mine to own, and it's not so scary, to carry it alone."

The song was released to radio stations by the 32-year-old's family today in celebration of her life.

It was recorded in 2003, for a solo album which Emmett recognised "as a labour of love".

"It has never been released and is one of the tracks off the album, which she was working on the last few months, but wasn't able to complete," Emmett's spokesperson said.

The former Home and Away star's life revolved around music from as early as high school.

Emmett, the wife of television personality Rove McManus, died on November 11 with her husband and family by her side at Sydney's St Vincent's Hospital.

She had fought an eight-year battle with cancer.

In 2004, she recorded Shower The People with singer Marcia Hines.

"It didn't matter whether she was laying down vocal tracks in a professional studio or just letting rip at a karaoke party with friends, Belle (Belinda) was at her happiest behind a microphone," the release said.

Emmett wrote every song on the album, collaborating closely with ARIA-winning writer/producer Phil Buckle and producer/arranger Daniel Denholm.

Less Than Perfect will also be available to the public by a download from http://rovelive.com/

The release said the Emmett family were sharing the song now, knowing it "will bring a smile to Belinda's face to know that her music is finally being heard".

Her funeral will be held at Sydney's Mary Immaculate Church at 11am (AEDT) tomorrow.
