AMANDA - ALTO
If you could have any super power, what would it be?
Flight. I’d love to know what it’s like to fly and it would make travelling so much cheaper!
Aside from Soulstice, what do you do with your life?
I am currently finishing my Masters at UQ in Environmental Management. When I’m not studying and writing essays (yuck!), I like to spend time catching up with friends and singing in Soulstice.
What are your major influences/sources of inspiration?
David Attenborough is one of my major influences in my studies and I aspire to have a career like him one day.
What is your musical background and how long have you been singing?
I’ve been singing since before I could talk. My parents have told me stories that when I was a child they could hear me singing to myself hours after they put me to bed. I was always involved in school and camp musicals and high school choirs. I have also been playing the trumpet for 14 years.
What music do you listen to?
Top 40!! I will listen to anything on the radio, but songs that you can sing to in the car or have a great beat are my favorite. I also love a little blast from the past i.e. The Backstreet Boys. Jazz and musicals will always have a special place in my heart too.
What is your guilty pleasure?
Finding funny memes on the internet.
Team Edward or Team Jacob?
Vampires and werewolves are so last year. It’s all about Team Gale now!
Which would you rather wear for a month: bright green crocs or a “<3 Justin Bieber 4 Glee” badge on your chest?
Difficult to say... I’m going through an “I love bright colors” phase, but the Biebs is my Canadian homeboy… I’ll pick the crocs.
