A Thank You From Amanda Overmyer


Hi everyone! I figured the best way to contact all of you was through this Blog. My first Blog mind ya! So here goes!


I personally want to thank each and every one of you for all of the support, love and kind words you have bestowed upon me! I was able to view a lot of your comments but I was not able to respond. I do not think words could describe how you all have made me feel. I even got the support of people who I never thought would get me! Oh Chile ! I love you all!!


I want to let you all know that I am doing fine. I am completely satisfied with the outcome. I accomplished what I set out to accomplish and with out you I never would have made it as far as I did. Always double down on 11!


A lot of you have been asking what is next for me. There are people talking to people. What all that means is yet to be determined! My goal is to perform for people who like to hear me sing. If that is a large venue or just sitting around a fire pit with friends I am okay with it.


I’d like to close and say again how each of you has touched my heart! This is not the end of my Blog, this is the beginning of what I hope to be a fantastic journey that I can share with you all!


Rock On Ballads Suck… Chile !!!!

That Girl said...

Amanda!!! Tell you what, You were my favorite singer on American Idol and I've watched since season 2. You have the total package m'dear! You gotta know how to entertain a crowd and feel music, not just "sing" and you can that. I'm a huge Elvis fan and you kinda reminded me of him...just doggone cool.
The spark went out of this season when you left *fizzle* I still try to get your name in the idol reviews on my blog *L*
Blessings to you from That Girl - a mom, a wife - a music lover

That Girl said...

p.s. I'd love to hear you sing Down in the Alley!! If ever a song fit you... 'course I like Elvis'version the best, but you'd probably like Memphis minnie Take 2 Check them out here

Hi Amanda,
The one and only time I have watched American Idol and it was because I was talked into it because a girl from Lafayette was on. Well, it turned out to be you and I thought it was so cool and so well done when you were in the tryouts and you sang Janis and Simon said change songs...and girl you went right into a new song and blew everyone's socks off. I loved it and I love you voice, your style, your downhomeness. I even got on Ellen Degeneres' website and wrote her an email to ask her to find you a good agent and a good record company that wouldn't take advantage of you. From one Lafayette woman to a Mulberry woman...hang in there and rock our country in your style!!! As I have said before, I will buy your CD's, DVD's whatever comes out!! I'm a diehard Stevie Nicks fan so it takes a lot to wane from her voice, but I will to hear your powerful voice.
Sincerely,
Gretchen

Amanda, my 3-1/2 year old daughter Emily cries for you and always asks where her "rock star" is!! She absolutely fell in love with you and won't stop talking and asking about you. The poor kid cried her eyes out when she saw you on Idol Gives Back and then didn't see you perform! She always tells me she wants to meet you and talk to you, and any time she sees your picture she kisses it! It's funny but I'm glad she can have someone to like at a young age. I too was sorry to see you voted off and I pray that your life has even greater moments than what you had on Idol! Rock on!

its awesome you will perform for the people who like how you sing...but I live in Mexico and I do love how you sing, so are you coming? ;) no, really I hope you do get a record or something because I would love to hear you again somehow.. Good luck!

alopez8782 said...

My 3-1/2 year old daughter Emily absolutely loves you! She misses you terribly and cried her eyes out when she saw you on "Idol Gives Back" when you were working the phones! She kisses your picture on the Idol site, it's hysterical. I am glad that she enjoyed your time on the show - you are her "rock star". She always asks how she can contact you, so I told her I'd type this on the blog. Mom is a rock girl so I totally enjoyed you! Rock on and I hope for great things for you as you move ahead with whatever plans you make with your music!

Hey Amanda
I hope you actually get time to see this. I totally loved you on AI and you really stood out. You really impressed me. I think most bikers out there fell for you and rooted all the way in hopes you would get to the final. You have a strong head and will go far I'm sure. We have a group ride now and then roadrumblers.weebly.com if you and your fellow bikers ever want to ride. Hope to see you in person one day. Take care and I know we will be hearing about you as you get more known with your style. I really hope the best for you.
