Amie Noelle Comeaux (surname pronounced /ˈkoʊmoʊ/) (December 4, 1976 in Brusly, Louisiana[1] – December 21, 1997 in Lacombe, Louisiana) was an American country music singer who gained fame in her teens. Her debut album, Moving Out, was released on Polydor Records in 1994, and it produced the single "Who's She to You", a #64 on the Billboard country charts. Two posthumous albums, A Very Special Angel and Memories Left Behind, were issued in 1998 and 2007, respectively.

Early life

Comeaux first began singing as a child. When she was nine years old, she sang the Star-Spangled Banner at a New Orleans Saints game in the Louisiana Superdome, and continued to do so throughout her teenage years. Amie was also chosen to play the lead role in Annie at the Baton Rouge Little Theater.

Career

Record producer Harold Shedd had been working with Comeaux since she was ten years old, helping her with her singing skills.[1][2]

In 1993, she was signed to Polydor Records label. A year later, her debut album Moving Out was released;[1] however, Polydor closed its doors soon afterward, and Comeaux was left without a record deal. Toby Keith, who was also on Polydor at the time, had offered to help with Comeaux's second album before the label's closure.[2]

Death

On December 21, 1997, Comeaux was returning home with her grandmother and her godchild, Megan, from a Christmas family gathering in Alabama. As Comeaux passed a car, her car hydroplaned due to severe rain weather and struck a tree, and she was killed on impact. Comeaux's grandmother and godchild were injured in the crash and were hospitalized for some time, but both survived.[3]

Comeaux's post-death album A Very Special Angel was released March 6, 1998 by Rival Records of Nashville, Tennessee, but due to printing errors, the CD had to be repackaged and was re-released twenty days later. Comeaux had co-written some of the songs on the album. A second posthumous album, Memories Left Behind, was released in 2007. This album was dedicated to Comeaux's mother, who died in August 2006.[3]
