People Magazine- Liv On
Toronto Born Amy Sky is an award winning Singer- Songwriter with 12 solo cds to her credit.
2016 saw the release of two new cds : “Twilight Rose” a collection of original Hebrew spiritual world music, and Liv On, a collaboration with Olivia Newton-John and Beth Nielsen Chapman of songs to support those seeking healing from loss.
The LIV ON Project and CD came to fruition the way many of the best collaborations do…via a series of conversations between friends about what matters most in life: Love, loss, hope and healing.
In this case, however, the three friends happen to be international star Olivia Newton-John, Canadian singer/songwriter Amy Sky and Nashville-based singer/songwriter, Beth Nielsen Chapman.

This very special collection of songs will help lift the hearts of others going through their own hardship, whatever the cause.
From the uplifting “Stone In My Pocket” to the poignant, “My Heart Goes Out To You,” the songs on the “LIV ON” CD take the listener on a journey of remembrance, toward one of inspiration and hope.
LIV ON also brings listeners epic songs such as Beth Nielsen Chapman’s “Sand and Water” which was created following the passing of her husband.
As well, the three mega-stars have created several brand new songs, including the title track, “Live On,” which born of their own exploration into the pain of loss, the growth that follows and eventually, the journey toward renewed joy.
