PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa. -

An 11-year-old girl with recurring brain cancer happens to be an aspiring musician.

On Thursday, the singer-songwriter got the opportunity of a lifetime when she signed a record deal with a local recording company and recorded her first single.

Amy Hosmer says the song, titled "This Camp," is about a summer camp she attended at the Ronald McDonald House. She hopes her idol, Taylor Swift, will get the chance to hear her song.

Hosmer was diagnosed with a brain tumor when she was just 2-years-old. Doctors didn't expect her to make it, but Hosmer is a fighter.

Although the tumor has returned, requiring Hosmer to have surgery next week, she still was able to enjoy the special day.

Hosmer hopes this won't be the only time one of her songs lands her on the red carpet.

Her new song is expected to be distributed on iTunes in just a few weeks.
