Thinking back on Sunday got me through the last two days at work. It's crazy weather. One minute it's 49 degrees and now it's 19! I'm so underdressed. Even at work I forgot my over coat while on the runway. While I was chatting with one of my friends I got an inbox inviting me to do Brooklyn X Factor tonight! How could I say no to that? I wasn't supposed to do it till the end of the month but oh well!
Google got me a little turned around but I made it in! I'm so starving! I just got my food. Chicken and Waffles! Yummmm!
This place is cool. Black owned and beautiful! It's being held at Milk River on Atlantic Ave. The hosts of the show are background vocalist for many artists and are married to eachother. I'm loving it.
Although the food looked good the taste wasn't impressive. It was expensive too. There is a 2 item minimum to sit down so next time I'll get two waters. The talent on that stage was ridiculous! Some of the people singing were ones that didn't make it to the semi finals coming up soon. This will be a tough one for me. Looking forward to it! I'm not a whimsical singer. I don't do crazy riffs which I see a lot of them doing. and well. I envy those that do but I stay in my lane. I sung Listen for my audition/open mic performance. While singing I notice a few snarling faces. I figure these are the other singers. I was feeling a little competitive so I sung directly to them. While many were on the stage earlier with closed eyes standing still because of the the bright lights, I was not. I pointed and swayed. I rocked and leaned. I performed! I made sure I gave them something to sneer at! LOL I received a decent applause by most afterwards. The hosts asked if I should be advanced to the next round and I got nervous. Lol I thought the shade would overtake me. I got in! I will be performing in Brooklyn's X Factor in the coming weeks!
