Ama Chandra at the One World Coffeehouse
(with Anthony Jenkins)
October 19th, 2019 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Ama Chandra is joined by our own Anthony Jenkins at the UUCC One World Coffeehouse!
If you’ve attended some of UUCC’s jazz and blues-infused Sunday mornings, you’ve heard Ama Chandra’s unforgettable vocals as she sang at services led by Rev. Anthony Jenkins. This concert will give you a taste of what she’s truly capable of.
Ama Chandra was born in Tampa, Florida and raised between Plant City and Lakeland, Florida. She’s been a resident of Baltimore, Maryland for the last 15 years and has spent time abroad in Salvador, Brazil.
Ama has a degree in Psychology, Sociology, Nursing and presently works as a nurse, along with being a professional singer, griot, activist, and mama of two.
Ama has overcome the trials of a painful divorce, the struggle of having two premature babies, the trauma of a violent attack and resulting PTSD, and the challenges of single motherhood and co-parenting in a blended family. It’s these life experiences that she brings to life in the heart od her songs.
Ama Chandra brings passion and medicine to her music. With influences of Jill Scott, India Arie, and Nina Simone, she infuses her sound with soul and warmth, vibrance and power.
What does Ama Chandra wish to give the world?
I Lead with Love. Another human striving to be whole. Chasing visions of victory for all of us.
