Amick Byram, a two time Grammy nominee and Broadway performer, (Phantom, Les Miserables, Sunset Boulevard) has just completed his first solo CD titled, Encounter. Encounter is unlike anything out on the market today. It is very theatrical and emotionally stirring as each song represents a dramatic moment in the life of men from the Bible. Abraham, Moses, David, Jesus, Barabbas, the Centurian, John the Baptist, are just some of the people represented.
Included on the CD is "All I Ever Wanted" from the hit movie, The Prince of Egypt, in which Amick sang the role of Moses. This is an extremely high quality CD with the songs fully orchestrated and recorded in London by members of the London Philharmonic Orchestra. For more information on how to order the CD and also samples of the songs, visit Amick's website at www.amickbyram.com.
"I've been blessed to have many great singers from Aretha Franklin to Frank Sinatra sing my songs, but one of the best ever is Amick Byram."
