Years ago, when complications from allergies left scarring in her throat, young Amanda Hernandez was hardly able to speak. Now, she finds herself on stage as the lead singer for an aspiring teen rock band with hopes of touring the world.
The group, which includes four members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is focused on performing positive music, strengthening others and keeping priorities straight.
Amanda Hernandez, now 15, told the Deseret News that she remembers first dreaming of becoming a singer as a sixth-grader while attending a theatrical performance at her school. “I was thinking, ‘Wow, I want to be up there!’ ” she said.
