Novi teen aims for pop career.

A

manda Morgan, a 17-year-
old singer-guitarist-
songwriter, is learning the
importance of enduring fans.
From a distance, their votes have
brought special recognition for her
recordings played on indie radio sta-
tion WDVD (96.3 FM), ranking her
original songs as the most requested
among a group of selections intro-
duced. In "The Radio Cafe" polls,
her most recent winner, "Just Wanna
Know Why," topped the charts for four
straight weeks.
Up close, fans who saw Amanda on
a local TV morning show arrived early
for her first big concert. They wanted
to say hello and get front seats before
her performance at last September's
Arts, Beats & Eats festival in Royal
Oak.
The emerging entertainer hopes to
become known by even more listen-
ers this month and next as her song
"Ten Steps Back" is featured on Delta
Airlines' in-flight music channel,
which potentially can reach more than
3 million listeners.
Amanda, who periodically appears
at AJ's Music Cafe in Ferndale and the
Plymouth Coffee Bean Company, is the
one who packages and mails out fan
T-shirts when orders are placed at her
website, www.amandamorganmusic.
corn.
"Most of my songs are about other
people and their relationships, and I
pour my heart and soul into them:'
says Amanda, a Roeper School senior
who describes her style as a combina-
tion of pop, country and rock. "My
listening tastes are very eclectic, and I

enjoy all kinds of music."
Amanda has liked performing
since taking the stage as a 4-year-old
in a preschool show at Congregation
Shaarey Zedek, then later with a group
in West Bloomfield. She began playing
piano while in first grade and taught
herself guitar the year of her bat mitz-
vah at Temple Shir Shalom.
"I wrote my first song when I was 10
and sitting at the piano:' says Amanda,
who uses her first and middle names
for her entertainment projects, leaving
off her surname, Shapiro.
"The song just happened. When I
write, there's nothing I can force."
With the help of her voice coach
and promotional work by her parents,
MaryAnn and Morris Shapiro of Novi,
Amanda began recording. She made
her first EP, Land of an Endless Sea, in
a New York studio when she was 15.
Until then, music had been a hobby.
"My next single, `Saturday in June,
will probably be released in February:'
says Amanda, who recorded in a
Ferndale studio. "I wrote the song
about a failed relationship last year.
It was very exciting that Patrick
Simmons of the Doobie Brothers
agreed to play guitar for the recording,
adding his part at a studio in Hawaii.
Technology has allowed musicians to
connect without meeting each other."
Amanda has decided to study busi-
ness and economics at Arizona State
University while keeping up with her
musical interests.
"I, didn't think a music degree would
be practical:' says Amanda, who has
enjoyed being in the Roeper choir and
playing on the soccer team.
"My big dream is to be a pop star;
but however things go, I'll think of it
as the way it's meant to be." ❑
