Pint-sized singer all set to perform for pope, 3 July 2007, Daytona Beach News-Journal, Daytona, Florida The third-grade home-schooler is Catholic and says it will be an honor to sing at the Vatican [among 80 voices in The Renaissance Singers]. She is a bit nervous but not worried because her mom will be traveling with her.
She recently competed in a singing competition, Straightaway to Stardom at Volusia Mall, but did not win. “I am not really good at a cappella; I start to twang,” she said.
She’s raised thousands of dollars for Alzheimer’s and cancer research. She sings at nursing homes, gets friends together for charity walks and calls them the Bratz Rock Angels, including Rosie Vanyo, 5, of Ormond Beach.
“We play,” said Rosie, who considers Amberlynn just another kid. But she does think Amberlynn “could be famous” in which case: “I’d go to her mansion.”
