Amy at World Aids Day in 2009

It’s not every day you get to sing for the President. But that’s just an ordinary day in the life of rising star Amy Jones. The Western Cape beauty is a member of the South African Youth Choir which sees her traveling all over the country.

Recently, Amy and her choir traveled to Parliament to perform for President Jacob Zuma in Cape Town.  All eyes were no doubt on her during her solo in two of the songs.

“I met the president and it was awesome,” she says excitedly. “It was quite surreal singing for him at that time. Looking at him and how he was watching me perform was just great. Overall it was one of the biggest moments of my singing career.”
