Could Ammara Brown have finally made her breakthrough?
REPORT BY SILENCE CHARUMBIRA
Barely a year after the songstress lost both parents in a space of two months, and when others would have easily given up, her name has been popping up at various prestigious stages as a performer.
Her father, Andy Brown, died on March 15, just two months after her mother’s demise.
But this did not distract her as she remained focused on her work.
Ammara will now rub shoulders with musical greats after winning a slot at the forthcoming Lion Lager Summer Beer Festival, scheduled for October 13 at Glamis Stadium.
Ammara got the slot against all odds to become the youngest artist to perform at the event alongside some of the country’s most sought-after names.
“I am elated. I am more excited than anything else,” she told StandardLife&Style last week.
“All I can say is that there is no better ending to such a crazy year than this. I am grateful for the faith that many people have shown in me.”
Ammara (24), made her first grand appearance at the Winter Jazz Festival, where the organisers felt compelled to slot her in after the death of her father who was a regular performer at the same stage.
