"Amanda is probably one of the greatest night club performers of all time. Her lyrics are profound and express human emotions in glorious poetry. Her humour is so smart and she sings and acts it all brilliantly."

Broadway World

Amanda McBroom has been called “…the greatest cabaret performer of her generation, an urban poet who writes like an angel and has a voice to match.” Her name first came to the attention of the music public when Bette Midler’s version of Amanda’s song 'The Rose' hit number one all over the world in 1979. But it was Amanda’s performance of her own song on the Golden Globes (she won), Grammys (she didn’t) and The Tonight Show that launched her career as a singer as well as songwriter.
