Awww...they are so cute together! Wow, Amanda has really grown up. She seems so much more confident and self assured than a couple of years back. I really enjoyed watching this one!! Thanks Cecile!

First of all, the video was really very cute... I mean this question sincerly, not to be rude or stir up and problems... But, I am wondering about something that Amanda said on the video and thought that maybe Julie or someone could shed light on it for me. Ive been super busy lately, so maybe this was discussed and I just missed it...

Anyhow, if I remember correctly, Amanda's parents (or whomever it is that runs her website) actually said that she DID have pharyengitis (sorry, I have no idea how to spell that and I don't feel like looking it up) and that this was the reason that Grace was going on for her as Annie during matinees...

However, in the video, Amanda said that she did not have pharyn-however-you-spell-it and that her voice is perfectly fine. Now, at 11, I have no reason to doubt that she knows perfectly well what/if anything was wrong with her, so I have to believe that she doesn't. But, what I'm wondering is, this... If she's okay, why wasn't she able to do all the performances and Grace performed during the matinees?

Again, I don't want that to come off wrong and I mean it with all sincerity. I was just curious. Thanks.

Apparently, Amanda did have vocal stress and was advised not to perform as many shows, which is why Grace was given the matinee performances. I'm guessing that Amanda took the fan question literally and meant that she is currently not suffering from any vocal problems.

Thanks Julie... I figured that's what might have been the answer. But, I think that what confused me the most was that they had also said (on her website) that she would only be missing the matinees for a few more weeks until she got better - but she ended up missing them for the remainder of the show So, I guess I took that to mean that she was still fighting it. Guess they just decided to do that so she wouldn't continue to get worse. Or, maybe it just means I misunderstood... Wouldn't be the first time, lol...

So glad to hear that it was nothing big and that she's doing better now.

It seems to have disappeared, I was just wondering what it was about.

They just talked about things that happened on tour and what they planned to do in the future.
