Amber Chats with Fans on 85 A.B. She shares her thoughts on Austin Brown and Tommy Parker...
So many of you have asked for a chance to chat and ask me questions that I thought today would be a great day to hear from all of you as we celebrate the 1st Year Anniversary of 85 A.B.
Timothy: Happy New Year!! I checked out Austin Brown's Highway 85 and download it. It's nice, do you know if Austin plans to release anymore music?
Amber: Happy New Year!! You know what Timothy, that is a good question, Austin is always working and creating new music. If you follow him on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram you always see him bringing something new. Just stay tuned 2012 was just the beginning and I am sure there is more to come from Austin Brown in 2013. Also check out Austin Brown's website at: http://www.austinbrown.com
Iasia: Happy New Year Amber!!! What can fans look forward to from 85 A.B. this year?
Amber: Happy New Year Iasia!!! We plan to continue to support Austin Brown, Tommy Parker and the band. We hoping for more interviews, news, performances and highlights to come. Just stay with us, 2013 will be fun!!!
Melody: Hey Amber, Happy, Happy New Year!!! I love 85 A.B. and Highway 85!! The Official Prince Parker Fans is amazing!! Will there be more Tommy Tuesdays this year? I love reading your interviews.
Amber: Hi Melody, Happy New Year to you too. Thank you for the love and support for 85 A.B. and The Official Prince Parker Fans!! I am looking forward to working with Tommy this year on Tommy Tuesdays. He has been real busy and we have not done Tommy Tuesdays like we had hoped but, we will try and bring that back for sure.
Cori: What is it like working on a website for Austin Brown and Tommy Parker and receiving support from them on what you are doing?
Amber: You know what Cori it is fun!! I believe in Austin's and Tommy's music and it is wonderful seeing individuals you care about, grow and succeed in what they want in life. Having their support means a great deal to me.
Charlayne: You and Tommy Parker are extremely close, what does he mean to you?
Amber: That is my heart, Tommy and I have become best friends. He means a lot and I love him very much!!
Tanisha: I saw on The Official Prince Parker Fans that you honored Tommy's mom, I know that meant a great deal to Tommy for you to take time to do that. What made you decide to honor his mom in such a special way?
Amber: Thank you, I wanted the website to represent Tommy Parker the person, musician and producer. Family means a great deal to Tommy and his mom was his world and I just felt like the site would not be complete without the woman who made him the man he is today. I have tired to include as many family members as I can without going to far into his personal life but, giving fans a look at Tommy Parker the individual.
Grace: Hi Amber!! Happy New Year!! What do you say to people who say that you can't have a business relationship and a personal relationship with someone at the same time?
Amber: Hi Grace, Happy New Year!!! I think it is very possible to have that, you hear about best friends going into business together all the time. I think you have to be very clear on what you both want and keep the lines of communication open at all times. You have to respect each other and agree to disagree sometimes.
Marcia: I saw how Austin Brown was talking about how certain individuals want to compare him to his uncle and how he wants to make is own mark but, don't you think he should use Michael's name and the Jackson families name to introduce himself more to the public? Should he shy away from his legacy?
Amber: I feel Austin has made the best choice for him. I would not say he has not acknowledged his family. Anyone who follows him knows who he is but, he wants individuals to listen to his music for his name and creativity. He knows that he comes from a famous family and he doesn't feel that he will ever be able to do what Michael Jackson was able to accomplish. He is just looking to make his own mark in the world.
Important Update: 85 A.B. Icon Contest Postponed...
