Shades of Amber
New and upcoming artist. As a performer, Amber Brooke already has an impressive resume that includes appearances in movies, television, voice-overs and theatre. Now she has set her sights on the music business. One of her first songs, 'Michelle's Song' shows the true depth of Amber's talent. After the death of her best friend's father, Amber takes an introspective look at the emotional turmoil people go through with the death of a close loved one, and explores the questions one must answer to begin the healing process. The background vocals are all friends of Michelle and she voices the closing line. The song won the MakeAStar.com contest and is currently on their first compilation CD. Impressive considering Amber is only 15! Wanting to get the attention of record labels, Amber decided she wanted a young band close to her age. After entering her songs in a local festival and being chosen to perform, Amber quickly went out and auditioned for her backup band. She came up with some great young talent. They spent 5 weeks rehearsing for the MOVA Arts Festival where they managed to snag the hearts of many, as well as first place for her song 'So Small'.
