"Music for Blood": Quest for Thalassemia Cure Drives New Artist's Debut Video, "Vocalessence by Amy"

Vocalessence is the first in a series of videos introducing Amy to an audience of people who appreciate and value original music. With direct-to-the-
The album of the same name features 12 songs that bring to mind elements of Norah Jones, The Swingle Singers, Karen Carpenter, Sheryl Crow, Carole King, The Manhattan Transfer, Amy Grant and Céline Dion. “Vocalessence by Amy” is an album that broadens the Adult Contemporary landscape and embraces many styles all tied together by the personality, sincerity and voice of music’s newest hopeful, Amy.
Of the 12 songs on the album, 10 were written/co-written by award-winning songwriter/producer, Randall Michael Tobin, in collaboration with Amy and Nancy Hemmings. One of those songs, “Kinda Cool,” took First Place in the 14th Annual Great American Song Contest 2012 in the Adult Contemporary category. The two cover songs feature fresh arrangements of Dean Martin's "That's Amore" and the Beatles' "In My Life."
“Working with Amy has been a dream,” said Tobin. “Her ability to reach out through the speakers and captivate the listener with her honesty and sincerity is truly amazing.” “People around the world who value great music with meaningful messages, need this album,” he added.

Randall summed it all up, adding, “In a world where music has become increasingly synthetic, it's nice to see a return to the authentic with ‘Vocalessence by Amy.’ We're on a mission to get this album known to every music lover out there.” And in the process, perhaps Amy will be one giant step closer to realizing her dream of a cure for Thalassemia.
