Amanda Baker selected as spokesperson for child poverty coalition

Kitchener, Ont, Canada, August 24, 2007 --( Emerging independent singer/songwriter Amanda Baker has been described as a “diva” due to her soulful vocal style and command of the stage. Her trademark phrase “I'm not here to be a princess, I'm here to be the Queen.” is even available on T-shirts sold at her shows, but this diva has a huge heart for children living in extreme poverty. Baker recorded a video that is being used to welcome visitors to Worldview and the sixteen artists from ten countries who are featured on their new website ( Each artist has contributed a recent music video and also recorded their thoughts on child poverty and/or child sponsorship to encourage people to consider sponsoring a child through one of Worldview's featured charities.

According to site creator Stephen Jarnick “Amanda's endorsement video is very real. It impressed everyone we showed it to, and there was no question that it was the best choice to represent what Worldview is all about.”

Baker, who was born in New Zealand, and raised in Perth, is currently based in Sydney Australia. Her shows range from solo performances to being backed by a nine piece band. The video for her song “Addictions” which is featured on Worldview, was shot by her brother - cinematographer Denson Baker. As an independent artist, the award winning video was self-funded with the help of many fans of Baker's music.
