Some fun facts about Amy:

  • Sang in the North American premiere of Paul McCartney's Liverpool Oratorio at Carnegie Hall.  The Harlem Boys Choir sang, too -- they had no idea who Sir Paul was (sigh).
  • Loves non-fiction books, especially memoirs.
  • Grew up on Long Island.  
  • Knows the lyrics to virtually 1000s of songs in the musical theater catalog.
  • Once had to special order Sierra Pale Ale for Paul Newman who was attending an event she planned.
