TESTIMONIALS

Envision

“Amrit has done lots of performances for us now and we are always really keen to get her back.  She commands the attention of our large and young audiences brilliantly. They love her and she clearly loves them. Its not just her voice that is magic, it’s the way she uses it. She always puts a lot of thought into what she sings and the choices are spot on for the occasion. What’s more she is organised and reliable and a pleasure to work with. Amrit has been a great ambassador for Envision. She really believes in the power of young people to shape the world for good and that belief shines through when ever she talks. She has been great at inspiring other young people to take action, especially those that may never have seen themselves as changemakers before.”

– Jennie Butterworth – CEO – Envision

In her role as an Ambassador for the Trust, Amrit has proven a real commitment to bringing about positive change in her community – she has worked hard to inspire others to consider issues around prejudice, discrimination and tolerance.

“Amrit has the ability to engage with our most challenging young people. She quickly establishes boundaries and healthy relationships with the young people, some of which have a deeply traumatic past. Over a longer term she has been instrumental in developing young people with her mentoring and coaching experience. Her innovation in engaging young people has had her use her cultural, historical and musical awareness to inspire young people with an alternative perspective on education.”

“Our first workshop with Amrit was beautifully pitched and generous. She came with just the right amount of material and a good mix of fun and serious, of teaching and asking. Amrit looked the young people in the eyes and they really responded brilliantly to her. Amrit’s delivery in her second workshop with us was strong, engaging and she managed the time well. She offered a great mix of challenges, thought-provoking activities and expressive musical work.”

 “Amrit’s voice takes you to another place, where it’s just you and the music.  The audience disappears for that moment and it’s just her pulling at your heartstrings.  It’s an absolute breathtaking experience.   She is full of soul and has a power in her voice that shakes any room she sings in.  It’s always a gift to witness her on her stage and be transformed.”

“It was fantastic for our youth forum to hear Amrit’s inspiring story so far. Here at Mousetrap Theatre Projects we feel it is important that the young people we work with have the opportunity to meet industry professionals, such as Amrit, to gain an insight into the world of work. It was particularly valuable to hear how Amrit networks and uses music as a way to make connections with other artists.” 

Nancy Shakerley – Mousetrap Theatre Projects – Youth Engagement Manager

“I was privileged to be part of an amazing session led by Amrit. The vocal session was so creative, it engaged and challenged at the same time resulting in a truly uplifting session. I cannot predict the future – but I have no problem stating Amrit’s future across all she does will change the lives of all she works with.”
