Let’s find out more with Up close & personal interview with Amoray.
What motivated you to become a recording artist?
I have been in the performing art’s for 20 years in Dancing, Acting and Singing. I have been recording demo’s for years and have sung with various groups also doing musical theatre it’s always been in the cards for me to become a Recording Artist and it was all about timing. Another thing is the right songs that fit the trends of the music business. Once I got the right songs and producer I’m ready to work.
Where do you get inspiration?
I’m inspired by my first teacher to music by my mother and father they were lover’s of all types of music from Gospel , blues, great soul R&B singers and Reggae music was played almost everyday in our house. These things also inspired me to respect the quality of great voices like Aretha Franklin, Al Green, Stevie Wonder, Sylvester, Bob Marley and so on. I love some of the new talents in music industry like Neyo, Usher, Beyoncé and strangely Nikki Minaj. I’m also inspired by everyday experiences and new things people adventures that’s inspires for my melodies. I write my songs for current times and situations. I just keep my ears and eyes open and the inspiration just pours in.
What do you do to unwind? Hobbies ?
I like to spend time with a few close friends, we almost never talk about the music business. It’s more of my listening to them and what’s going on in their lives. It really relaxes me to just chill, eat amazing food like salads are my favorites. Road trips are great to just filling the car with gas and let the wind take you. Spa’s are awesome and I’m love massage therapy. I’m also into some sports like Tennis and Swimming these are things I have been into since high School. But most of all, if I’m very sleep deprived I need catching up with at least 8 hour sleep.
What advice can you give to start-up artist?
The best advice I can give anyone that want to be a professional artist is to get a great vocal coach and study hard to learn about what your voice can do. Also make wise choices, you don’t have to be involved in everything just the right things that will help you propel to your goal. Also surround yourself with people who believe in what your doing. That will empower and motivates you. There is nothing worse than having haters around you it will only bring you down. One more thing if you are a independent artist be ready to invest in yourself. Take care of your business like copyrights and publishing it only cost a few dollars to secure your music.
If given a chance to work with any artist/producers who would that be?
David Guetta, Motto Blanco, Jennifer Hudson, Neyo, Tony Moran, Manny Lehman wish came true on the new EP “Don’t Say It” there are so many more.

Former Philippine President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo led the groundbreaking ceremonies of the Bantay Bata 163 Children’s Village March 29 in Norzagaray, Bulacan.

YFPA Gala 2015: What is your revolution?
By Lydia Neff
SAN FRANCISCO – Once again, the Young Filipino Professionals Association in San Francisco Bay Area will host an annual gala to raise funds for its scholarship progRam. The gala will be on February 22 at 5:30 p.m. at Fort McKinley restaurant.
The 13-yar-old YFPA’s scholarship program provides financial assistance to deserving graduating high school students who have demonstrated leadership skills and have decided to pursue higher education.
The scholarship program was designed for local San Francisco Bay Area high school graduating students selected based on academic achievement, career goals and specific application metrics set by YFPA.
The evening’s theme will focus on “revolution” from the individual’s point of view and how it relates to careers, community and society. It will shed light on how different individuals from different walks of life have shaken up the existing realities of Fil-Am’s in the Bay Area.
This event is inspired by the 29th anniversary of People Power Revolution in the Philippines where a huge movement was initiated for social change.
Almost 30 years ago, what became known as the People Power Revolution led to the departure of longtime dictator, Ferdinand Marcos. The People Power Revolution made international headlines that has since been an inspiration to other civil resistance movements worldwide.
YFPA will celebrate notable “firsts” in the Filipino community. From the first Filipino State Assemblyman Rob Bonta to the first Filipina elected to San Francisco public office Rebecca Delgado-Rottman to the first Filipino BART police officer Gary Cagaanan.
Dinner will be served along with a line up of entertainment including emcee Alan Manalo, ukulele artist Ukulenny, Schematic Band and Jericho Rose. There will be a cash bar.
