Cobbet Classmates Celebrate With Amanda!
Congratulations To Amanda Mena!
Amanda Mena Update!
LYNN - Eleven-year-old singing sensation Amanda Mena of Lynn will compete this weekend for top honors on “La Voz Kids,” a Latino version of “The Voice.” Amanda, a fifth-grader at Cobbet Elementary School in Lynn and the daughter of Martin and Miosotis Mena, will appear on Telemundo TV network’s production this Sunday at 8 p.m. She developed her talents at the Lynn YMCA’s music studio. The first episode of “La Voz Kids” aired on March 16 on Telemundo, and Amanda got all three coaches’ chairs to turn around right at the start, which is an indication of how much they like a singer. The coaches initially listen to singers without seeing them. Amanda’s performance has had 250,000 million views on YouTube. On Sunday she battles to be one of the top 18 performers. Last year Amanda performed before hundreds of people at the Strand Theater in Boston as the Lynn YMCA music studio was a part of Music and Youth Initiative’s Annual Showcase. She also received a standing ovation at Kaya’s Lynn Out Loud Talent Showcase.!
