GRAMMY® Nominated Artist Miss Amy Brings "Fitness Rock & Roll" To LA, February 8-11
GRAMMY®-Nominated Recording artist Miss Amy is coming to Southern California with an even higher mission than walking the Red Carpet at the 54th GRAMMY® Awards.
Miss Amy will be joined by Reality TV Star and Kids Fit Foundation representative Dan Evans. Together they will raise awareness about the importance of exercise and nutrition. Slated for February 8th and 9th are four enrichment concert appearances that will reach more than 800 students at Daniel Webster School (a President's Challenge Program Demonstration school) in Pasadena, and the new Extera Public Charter Schools in East LA.
Dan Evans, a former contestant on the hit show The Biggest Loser and Nashville Recording artist, will share his story of weight loss and personal triumph. He will also perform a couple of his hit songs, including "Goin' All Out." After losing 136 pounds, Dan now has a healthy relationship with food, and motivates and inspires others to live active lifestyles.
Miss Amy has twenty years experience in the fitness industry and is an official advocate for the President's Challenge Program. She has five solo albums in her discography and appears in a number of other published projects, including: four compilation CDs, a bi-lingual educational DVD and three books. Through her kid-friendly music she educates families about Health and Wellness. One of Miss Amy's goals is to bring her Healthy Bodies Rock! program to under-served elementary schools across America. Her program is aligned with the 21st Century Standards Core Theme of Health Literacy, and she encourages children to claim their athletic identities and build positive character traits.
In addition to her school appearances, Miss Amy & Her Big Kids Band will give an interactive Fitness Rock & Roll concert (reminiscent of her 2010 White House Egg Roll performance) at the LA Air Force Base for service families the morning of February 11th.
Miss Amy's FITNESS ROCK & ROLL CD is nominated for Best Children's Album in the 54th GRAMMY® Awards, broadcasting on CBS-TV and online at www.grammy.com on February 12, 2012.
