Irving, Texas. November 19, 2012 –
Amy Stevensen entertained her audience with musical brilliance and endearing stories of growing up in Irving and about how she developed her musical talent and theatre career. Amy was raised by a loving and musically- gifted family. She honored her dad’s memory by singing several of his favorites, including “Hey Look Me Over.” Amy also thanked her mom (who was in the audience) for her support. She also gave a lot of credit to her life-long extended family of friends (many of whom were also in attendance.) The audience responded with tears of joy to Amy’s humorous stories about her life journey. The musical program selections highlighted Amy’s God-given vocal gift and God’s guiding hand in Amy life.
Adam Wright wrote the musical arrangements and accompanied Amy on the piano. He wrote the arrangements to include the violin and cello, expertly performed by Katrina Katzer and Buffi Jacobs. The program included popular songs such as “Some Enchanted Evening” and a haunting arrangement of “Moon River.” The program also included inspiring selections, such as “Have a Little Talk with Jesus” and “How Great Thou Art.”
Amy’s program ended with a well-deserved standing ovation and encore performance. As the audience waited in the lobby for Amy to appear, this writer overheard the following attendee comments:
"Amy was great! I really enjoyed the arrangements."
"She is so enthusiastic. She obviously loves what she does."
"Amy should take this program on a road tour…other communities would be inspired by her!"
"Amy should record this program on a DVD."
"Her passion and love comes out in her music. What a gift!"
