Singer Amy Lynn Whitcomb Will Direct BYU Noteworthy
BYU Performing Arts Management is pleased to announce that Amy Whitcomb has accepted the position as artistic director of BYU Noteworthy. Her past experience makes her a valuable addition. “I learned early on that you can’t put yourself in a box,” says Whitcomb. “Having such variety and working with tons of people have helped me think outside of this box. I don’t see Noteworthy in a box. I see their potential. I still have a lot to learn, but I’m prepared to take on the reins.”
With her vision for the group, Whitcomb plans on making Noteworthy more than an a cappella group on campus. “I want to foster and hone in on what makes Noteworthy unique naturally. I want to use the fact that we are women with strong values, with testimonies of Christ, and with purpose and understanding of who we are,” says Whitcomb. “I want to spread light and goodness in many shapes and forms.”
An alumnus of Brigham Young University, Whitcomb graduated in April 2011, majoring in commercial music. During her time at BYU, she was also in Noteworthy whenthe group appeared on the television show, The Sing-Off.
Whitcomb had the opportunity to return to The Sing-Off with female group Delilah, placing in the top six. In 2013, she also appeared on The Voice, where she made many connections that led her to singing with a cappella group Vocalosity, founded by Deke Sharon, the mastermind behind the 2012 film Pitch Perfect.
BYU Noteworthy is the university’s female a cappella group, whose music video for “Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)” has been viewed 37 million times on YouTube. The 9-woman ensemble has since kept up a strong social media presence and won The Contemporary A Cappella Society Awards.
Noteworthy originates in Brigham Young University’s office Performing Arts Management.
