Recognized in February 2016 as Bay News 9’s Every Day Hero and in May 2014 as FoxTV’s Hometown Hero, Life Amplified is a 100% volunteer spoken word and talent variety showcase began in January 2013 to benefit worthy local organizations helping our community.
Produced by the WriteOne Creative Services, it is a community-driven event showcasing talent of all ages from throughout Tampa Bay and all proceeds raised from ticket sales and raffle items are donated to the selected organization. The main requirement to be considered as a recipient of a Life Amplified event is to be a small, local, independent nonprofit or organization proven to be in need and making a positive difference in our community.
Performers range from elementary school to senior citizen and talent varies from mind-readers and child magicians to singers, dancers, comedians, acoustic musicians and spoken word poets, among others.

Life Amplified COMMENDS
On Saturday, June 25, 2016, Life Amplified COMMENDS performed for two very special veteran’s organizations – Circle of Veterans and Expunge US Veterans. All proceeds raised benefited the nonprofits.
