Lead & Backing Vocals
Hey, Iím Amber!
I have been singing for as long as I can remember, but when I was 9 years old was when I really started singing in the public sphere. It was the first time I sang on the Eagles Cancer Telethon, summer county fair competitions, and did my first musical play (Annie where I played Annie). That was my start, and the momentum has only built since then.
All through middle and high school I performed in plays and musicals, and I was in choir throughout nearly the entirety of my schooling. I sang every summer in county fair contests and as of now have moved on to compete at the Minnesota State Fair for 22 consecutive years. I have performed twice at the Grandstand Finals. I have done the Eagles Cancer Telethon almost every year since I was 9. I do many competitions throughout the year, whatever we can find.
At the end of 2016, after the birth of my second son in February of that year and returning to school part time in fall of 2016, I decided my life could use even more chaos, and I joined Next 2 Nothing to become the new backup singer. I thought I would miss being out on the dance floor as I had been coming to shows for nearly ten years, but I love doing backup! Apparently, I have been singing harmonies to songs on the radio since I was 2 or 3 years old, so it is obviously something I have always enjoyed.
I love this band and everything we do, and I hope that we can continue to entertain in the area for a long time to come.
