Her Favorite Books: A Land Remembered by Patrick D. Smith and… A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks. Wait, didn’t she star in that movie? Hmm, that seems a little, I don’t know, narcissistic. Or maybe she just really identified with the main character.
- A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks

Why should you listen to her?
Her route to fame started when she was named the "National Anthem Girl" because she sang The Star-Spangled Banner for all major sports teams and for Chris Evert's Pro-Celebrity Tennis Tournament. She quickly became involved in national commercials, TV pilots and voice-overs, including the voice of "Ducky" for the Universal Studios California Land Before Time attraction.
She also entered the fashion world appearing as a model in a Mexican teen magazine. All this national exposure worried Mandy; she was afraid that her friends would be jealous and talk behind her back. But the opposite happened and she received their full support and still talks to them on a daily basis.
During the recording of a theme song for a TV pilot, she received an offer to complete a full demo by a producer who took notice of here. A talent scout came in when she was recording and sent an unfurnished demo to David McPherson, Senior Vice President of Urban A&R for Epic Records/550. McPherson liked what he heard and immediately flew down to hear the young star sing. After receiving a couple of other offers, the bright young star decided to sign a deal with Sony Music.
Moore is learning to play the guitar and eventually wants to write her own music. The young singer has already seen more of the business than most grown-ups, but it is merely the start of a promising career.
