Here are the exact words Amy wrote in the letter above…

“I want to go somewhere where I am stretched right to my limits and perhaps even beyond. To sing in lessons without being told to shut up (provided they are singing lessons.) But mostly, I have this dream to be very famous to work on stage. It’s a life long ambition. I want people to hear my voice and just… forget their troubles for five minutes. I want to be remembered for being an actress, a singer, for sell-out concerts and sell-out West-End and Broadway shows and for being just me.”

After reading Amy’s words, Sylvia Young thought it was an ambitious statement for a thirteen year old… but she knew what she wanted… and she did get it.
