Marshall, Canada's newest and hottest export on the international music scene has sold almost 2 million copies world-wide of her self-titled debut album, which is nearing sales of 6 times platinum in Canada. In a sensational, riveting performance, taped in front of a jam-packed, wildly enthusiastic audience at the Opera House in Toronto, Amanda sings her top 10 hits, including "Birmingham", "Let It Rain", "Dark Horse" and "Beautiful Goodbye". She also talks about growing up in Toronto, her family and life on the road. "Amanda is a breathtaking, compelling performer," said producer Sandra Faire. "You can't believe what you're seeing and hearing. Her energy just reaches out, grabs you by the throat and pulls you into that screen with her". Marshall's touring record is phenomenal. She has performed in Japan, England, France, Norway, Sweden, Germany, Italy, the United States and all across Canada. She's charted on American Billboard; she received the International Billboard Award as well as receiving 3 Juno nominations. Her song "This Could Take All Night" from the motion picture soundtrack Tin Cup, starring Kevin Costner and Rene Russo was also a hit.

Lang, Anne Murray, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Corey Hart, Bryan Adams) and Trisa Dayot who co-produced Rita & Friends with Faire. Executive producers are Sandra Faire and Rick Camilleri (Sony Music Canada).
