He’s well established in the music business. I felt pleasantly surprised when I saw the email from him. He sent me a link to song, ‘This Is Me’ from ‘The Greatest Showman’. How could he be so intuitive? I replied, thanking him for his unexpected inspired sending. So apropos for my feelings at the time.

But alas, it was an Amanda mixed up.

I realized this after receiving a second email, thanking me for participating in their event at the Wang Center. Don’t get me wrong – I would have loved to participate – but I checked my calendar, and in fact, I did not perform at the Wang Center on the date he mentioned! It was Amanda Mena. And so I replied accordingly.

Since then I’ve checked out his intended Amanda.

Very grateful (and not) for the mix up:
