Pre Blind Auditions
Crazy how nervous, excited, scared I was waiting in New Orleans at the Louis Armstrong airport to fly into the unknown? LOL
I'm so silly... I'm a pro- why am I afraid?
Maybe because I feel it's a bit risky to take My Voice, talents to a platform where It will be judged, subjected to producers, coaches deciding if it's worthy to be the voice of America?
Will I have a choice in the song selection? Will I be able to play Piano and accompany myself?
I've worked so hard.
Will this be the exposure I need?
It's weird I've been singing since I was in diapers, Literally!, But performing my own songs, playing piano and having creative control of the stage is a far cry from competing with other singers on national television, singing cover songs..
Will I get a chance to advance to the live shows where America/ the World will get to see who I really am? I now realize this is my fear, not performing or singing. That comes naturally.
Will the public get a chance to see the singer/songwriter, preachers daughter representing the southern region or will my voice get lost in translation? Wow- I better sing for My Life!
I was a bit skeptical at first, after all the drawing card for me was the Blind auditions. Finally I wouldn't be judged on what I looked like, How Old I was, what clothes I had on, Just My Voice!
I just pray I sing with as much honesty, emotion, soul and conviction as humanly possible.
I've been waiting my entire life, career to get a chance to be on a platform with this kind of exposure.
I hope I make my family and friends proud. I will do my best to make a difference in this world!
