My Mom decided to travel last minute against Doctors orders, but felt she was on the mend and wanted to be here to support her baby girl. I actually spent my last bit of savings to fly her out.
Mom is my biggest fan, but she became very sick once she arrived and I was told an hour before stepping on stage for Blind auditions she was being rushed to the Good Samaritan hospital. What a nightmare!
I was an emotional wreck! Nervous, worried, I felt so responsible for encouraging her to fly after all it was her first time to fly in 40 years and my dad had never been on a plane!
I would never forgive myself had it turned out bad.. Thank God she is home now and on the mend. I hope she will be able to come see me sing if I advance to the live shows!
I walked on that stage so excited, and exhausted. I had been waiting my turn since 11 am and it was now close to 10 PM.
I stayed Pro and Rocked it!.. I thought? I started getting a little ticked off when none of the coaches turned around.
My eyes drifted away from the crowd screaming to the back of those Red Chairs, I was on the edge of my seat.. only I was standing up and watching the audience go nuts, but chairs were still not turning?
I didn't understand, but then I thought to myself.. Sing Like I was dying, sing for my life, so I did and on my last big note I held it out as long as I could and Blake turned around. Saved by the Cowboy star! Imagine that!
I was so surprised a country boy spinning his chair around for a soul sista? Ha
Very humbling experience indeed.. I guess when it's from the soul it's soulful no matter where you come from!
Yippiekieyeh!! I'm In!!
