What a voice, What a legacy I’ll cherish the memories I have with you, on and off the stage. Rest in heavenly peace, Amoy Levy. Thank you for everything you’ve invested in me. Sending my deepest condolences to all of her family and friends. This is such a tremendous loss, but it was time for another angel in heaven.
