Sometimes it’s not too early to talk about Christmas, like when Amanda Stathos releases a combo CD/breast cancer fundraiser
Roanoke is home these days to a very explosive singer named Amanda Stathos. She can wail on the new-style R&B music like no one I’ve heard around here, and she’s a nice person, too. On Sunday, Stathos releases her Christmas EP, “Sing For Joy,” and half of the proceeds will go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, according to Stathos.
Stathos has a very personal reason for the idea and the release date. Her mother died of breast cancer when Stathos was a young girl. Her mother would have celebrated her birthday on Sunday, “and I cannot think of a better way to honor her fight than to use my gifts to do something for others,” she wrote in an e-mail.
