^ from: myspace.com - Amy Barbera- A singing goddess.
Back around September 2007, I got a friend request on Myspace from a musician named Amy Barbera. The native of Hagerstown, Maryland, USA is an inspirational singer with an amazing voice and is very powerful in her music. She is someone whom has battled an eating disorder and has relentlessly never let her dreams and visions go to waste. In case you've never heard of her or her music, listen to this angelic goddess by visiting Amy Barbera's Myspace page. Or you may visit her official home page at www.amybarbera.com (this link will appear again later in this blog post, so don't worry about clicking this link right now).
