“Amanda [Joy], your performances at Relay [For Life] were simply amazing and by far the best entertainment venue we had this year.”
Charles Richardson, Relay For Life of Aurora, Entertainment Chair

What an amazing performance that was!!! You’d be amazed at how many great comments we have received (even from my 6 year old daughter who now wants to be you!!). Everyone was truly moved by your song and your passion and it was really a remarkable moment and we are grateful for you making the time to be there. THANK YOU!!!!!”
Jeff Frye- Showcase For The Cure Committee Chair

“What a performance! The committee will have their work cut out for them trying to top this year’s luminary ceremony. It was truly moving and a great tribute to those fighting cancer and those that have lost the fight but we continue to remember. Could not have done it without you.”
Patrick DiLullo- Hudson Relay For Life Committee Chair

“Amanda Joy is one of the finest people I have ever had the opportunity to work with. Her determination and strength always get the job done for both her work and family. She is a constant blessing to the people she comes in contact with because her desire is to serve others. She is tactful in communication, but honest in heart. She is willing to do what needs to be done to accomplish the good of the whole, not just the individual. Amanda Joy is truly a blessing to know and work with.”
Andrew Skifstad, Worship Director

“You were in the right place at the right time today at our Daughters of the King Tea Party. [You gave] a very timely message of hope and perseverance and joy in spite of really tough times. Thank you so much for sharing your life with us today. You were a blessing. And your music is awesome. Your voice is incredible. And yet it couldn’t help but take the back burner to the story that you shared. Wow! Praise the Lord”
Gloria Schwartz, Aurora Mennonite Church

“I chose Amanda Joy to sing at my wedding because I was familiar with her testimony. I know Amanda Joy uses her musical gifts as her ministry to serve the Lord. I am honored to have had her take time to sing at my wedding and opening doors to share her testimony and beautiful voice.”
Sarah LaTampa, Bride

“It was so nice to be led by a woman with a huge heart for worship.”
