Four months ago I was given the opportunity of a lifetime. An opportunity that could easily make all my dreams come true. That was to fly out to the city by the bay, and go through not one, not two, not three, but four audition rounds for the all knowing television show, American Idol. For thirteen years & thirteen seasons I swore up and down that I would never try-out for the show, and BOY was I so very wrong. Before I knew it Bree was making me perform full out in front of the mirror, in front of her, & in front of our co-workers. In the end I think I was more nervous performing in front of my co-workers than the cameras!
The audition process consisted of two full fourteen hour days of a complete emotional roller coaster. I think the last time I had that much adrenaline pumping through my veins was when I was eight, sprinting away from my crush on the playground. Every time I was passed on to the next round my heart was that much closer to bursting out of my chest. After the first day going through three rounds, the fourth round was the real deciding factor. On worldwide television, in front of Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr., and everyone else behind the cameras. But even with all the lights, cameras, and microphones being shoved in my face, I have never felt more at home. It was like everything made sense & was so right when I stepped onto that white X & took a deep breath.
I don’t know when the San Francisco auditions will air, so I guess you all will just have to watch the first few weeks! Also. . .SPOILER ALERT. . .I didn’t make it to Hollywood week. Regardless, this adventure only made me stronger, and only gave me more recognition that this is what I was meant to do. To be on that stage and entertain. Maybe you don’t agree, I’m sure a lot of people don’t out there. But that’s okay, because I’m sure of it and that’s all that matters. However, if you do happen to tune in tonight on FOX (ch.11) at 8 o’clock pacific standard time & see my absolutely lovely face chatting to the camera, singing, or being rejected from thee (emphasis on thee) Jenny From The Block, you will need to know my outfit details. . .DUH.

One more thing. If you never even knew I sang, sing, sung, you can fit me into your leisurely schedule & up those views on Youtube at any time . Or, BONUS, I am also in a girl duo group. We like to call ourselves Hush (don’t judge us…we were like 16 when we came up with the name).
