Music artists are often driven by the priceless life circumstances that inspire them to create songs that impact the lives of many listeners. Such is the story of up-and-coming music artist Amanda Marie Wilkinson who will be launching her debut single ‘Spiritual Level’ very soon. Hers is a story of grit, loss, hope, and healing that all contributed to making her the strong person that she is now.
Amanda Marie Wilkinson is very passionate about community, and her life slogan is “Unity with community.” It was her community in Texas that gave her the emotional, moral, and financial support she needed after her mother passed away when she was young. Aside from her mother’s untimely demise, Amanda got involved in a tragic accident that broke her back, pelvis, and femur, almost leaving her lifeless. Fortunately, surgery saved her life. After a series of physical therapy, she was able to use the wheelchair, and after some time, managed to walk again.
“No matter what can happen to shake up your day, knowing you have literally survived worse, brings so much more ease and peace. Everything else is irrelevant. I have been strengthened in areas I otherwise wouldn’t know of myself before. Those areas are magnified today. Each day is another day of growth. It is how we are able to grow together and that makes it all worthwhile. In all that I do, I give it my all. I lift others and walk with them as I continue on this journey. It is the very least I can do,” Amanda shares.
As Amanda Marie Wilkinson prepares to launch her music career, she is firm about continuing her passion for community and sharing its importance. Just as she was rescued by her community when she lost her mother and barely fully recovered from her physical injuries, she desires the same thing for so many people around the world who suffer because they lack the support of their community.
“Continuing my platform of support, lifting others, continuing to build and to walk together is only made possible in unity. As an artist, and most importantly first, a human, it is necessary to have a strong foundation, otherwise you have nothing to build from, nor something substantial to offer to anyone else. Being honest with yourself in knowing who you truly are, and what represents you as a whole, is absolutely necessary. Your voice is not only your power, but it is also your presence,” Amanda shares.
To continue to inspire people with her unconventional life story and exceptional journey to pursuing her music career is something that Amanda Marie Wilkinson sees herself doing long-term. Understanding that the world will continue to need a positive message that heals the soul, she is dedicated to continuing to create songs that will not only uplift one’s inner being but also inspire a change in perspective. As she continues to be a living example of the value of not losing hope, she looks forward to making a difference in the lives of many people through her songs.
