In her solo debut in 2000, Infinite Possibilities (Epic), Amel crafted a veritable concept album that explored an endless range of promise and potential. Its single "Get Up” is an ode to working people became a modern anthem and magnet for the growing legion of Amel’s fans.

Amel has contributed to film soundtracks, writing and singing in such films
