Norristown has a new star. She recorded her first song Wednesday and might be famous when it hits iTunes in just a few weeks.
Amy Hosmer, 11, of Norristown, is ready for the big life. The local preteen is thrilled. It helps to keep her mind off of life's more serious problems, like her life-long suffering. Hosmer, in addition to being a music star, also suffers from a brain tumor.
"When we heard her song, her story, it just kind of hit our heart. We had to help out," said Rotation Records' Tom Jensen to 6ABC.
Her first single, "This Camp" is Hosmer's first as both a singer and songwriter.
"Amy wants to be a singer, slash, slash, slash ... I want to be so many things," said Hosmer of herself to 6ABC.
While she is to face a "very risky surgery" next week, she says her illness has not crushed her dreams. She said she is excited to share her work with her friends.
"First of all, I'm going to bring it in to school and make sure everyone hears it," said Hosmer of her first song.
While Swift could not attend the recording, she did send her biggest fan a signed photo and gift bag of goodies. She said it really added to her big day.
Hosmer is busy looking to her future, and not dwelling on her illness.
"I'm very scared, but I pray for God," she said to 6ABC. "I believe in God, I have a very strong faith in Him, and I have a feeling he is going to take care of me."
