Julia Roberts' actress niece EMMA is a lot more confident about releasing her debut album, after getting advice from teen singer JoJo.

Roberts and JoJo teamed up to film upcoming movie AQUAMARINE, and during that time, the actress decided to seek some advice on the compilation of songs she was recording from her TV show UNFABULOUS.

Roberts, 14, says, "I was totally a fan of JoJo's even before we started filming.

"I was a little nervous since it's just me on the album. But then I realised that I've been singing since I was tiny - I could do it, for sure."
