: Hip Hop
True artistic soul blended with an unlimited array of sonic flavors like hip hop, smooth R&B, and fresh rhymes are barely the tip the iceberg. Twenty-Four year old Virgin recording artist Amanda Perez has a voice that shines through every heartfelt soul groove and flows with every rhyme. Perez's musical gift couldn't be more evident on her new album and single entitled I Pray, which has been steadily climbing the charts.
Perez's musical passion was as apparent in 1982 as it is today when at the age of two Amanda grabbed her father's accordion for the sake of hearing music. It was simply natural. Growing up in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, her life was enriched with the music of The Sombra Chicana USA, whose members were, of course, her relatives. At four years old she was already singing and playing the keyboards by ear!
Perez's legitimate hard work paid off in March 2001 when she agreed to sign her first recording contract under Powerhowse Records. In 2002 Perez released her debut Where You At? , which became a great success for Perez. In 2003, Amanda's career ascended to another level, as she released her self-titled album under Virgin Records, with the hit single "Angel", a tribute and memoir of her creative partner and cousin Mike.
With her second release I Pray, Amanda's journey takes you through the story of her past, present and future. Amanda proves to be a true sonic chameleon influenced by emotions and what she sees around her. While some of Amanda's music contains hip-hop flavor, it's her smooth, sexy and R&B harmonies that draw you closer. While "I Need Your Love" pays homage to an old school R&B classic, "Run With It" and "Make Me Feel" both provide the passionate side of Amanda. With "Dedicate" and "I Need You," it's love broken down to its simplest form. When all is said and done and the musical road of I Pray is traveled, you've experienced the world though Amanda's eyes and heart on a refreshing and earnest journey.
With an incredible new album waiting in the wings, first single "I Pray" buzzing at radio across the nation and a fresh new music video creating noise, Amanda Perez is ready to share her music with her fans once again. She is taking her tour bus on the road to give back to those that have been supportive from day one and to welcome those who will become her new fans with her truest love "Music from the Soul."
