Best known as the composer of "The Rose" for the film of the same name, her songs have been recorded by Bette Midler, Barbara Cook, Judy Collins, Barry Manilow and the Manhattan Transfer, to name just a few. She's also written her own musical entilted, "Heartbeats," which has been produced throughout the country, most recently at the Pasadena Playhouse. But it is perhaps in her live performances where Amanda is able to truly shine, combining her songwriting, acting and singing talents into shows that are "a model of what cabaret ought to be--at once intimate and emotionally expansive." --Stephen Holden, NY Post.
