Lady of the Week – Holly Amaya

Holly Amaya
Tenor 2 

How long have you been in the choir?
This is my fourth year!

What’s your favorite PFLC song?
While I love busting into We Belong when out with my choir lady friends, singing Anthem is always very moving.

What’s your favorite thing about being in this choir?
This choir is not just a singing group. It’s an amazing and supportive network of interesting, fun, powerful and kind women. I know that if I need last-minute child care, someone to take extra furniture off my hands, a bit of encouragement about a tough situation or a recommendation for a massage therapist there is always someone willing to help out!

What do you like to do outside of choir?
I love to be outside – hiking, camping, riding my motorcycle, lounging on a patio…I love traveling and finding adventures close to and far from home.

Who are your favorite local bands/musicians?
HALEY, Chris Koza, Jeremy Messersmith

What’s your go-to karaoke song?
It’s Oh So Quiet by Bjork. I promise not to break your eardrums on the screamy parts.

Describe yourself in three words
Efficient, sensitive, expressive

If there was a movie about your life, who would play you?
When I got my bangs, I was told Christina Hendricks

What do you want to be when you grow up?
Debt-free / Backup singer / yoga retreat leader
