Artist of the day: Amanda Nikka Puyot
She’s just a teenager, but Amanda Nikka Puyot has the eye of the tiger when it comes to becoming a pop star. She’s sung the national anthem for the Tampa Bay Rays and the Lightning, competed in a world showcase in Las Vegas, performed with local Phillippine cultural groups, sang with pop hitmaker David Foster and more.
