You would not believe how many times I tried to post and this phone or this app has deleted all my work. So here I go again and hope that my frustration does not went out and I delete this entire thing. As life would have it a lot of things I did not want to do I am now doing. I didn't want to drive my first job was valet Driver. I don't like the cold or being out in the elements yet my new job is a pedestrian safety officer ie crossing guard. Don't say never right? It's not a bad job. The people are nice. The tourists are funny. They think I'm a New Yorker. My southern charm has them fooled they have no idea. Lol I got rained on and I realize that I need to hurry and get all my cold weather gear as soon as possible. the clothing that is the issue is not enough to keep one dry or warm for as long as we have to stay outside. The good thing is we get a lot of breaks. I didn't want to become an ordinary person or risk stepping into an ordinary life but nothing happens overnight.
I haven't given up on music theatre but I had to change my current situation. I struck out on my own to sing in front of a crowd or try to draw a crowd without music. I ment at least 2 hours out there and didn't make me early as much money as I would him fully prepared. The area has a lot of potential because of the tourists. Hundreds of them a day! I've only seen dancers at the spot. This would be ideal for the spring and summer but it's so windy that may be too cold as a singer as the season rolls by. I started a donation site to raise money to buy equipment. I was pleased shocked and elated to see that one of the Morris Brown College alumni artists bought my equipment and it's now headed my way. Anya Dixon, you're my miracle!
I must admit that my lack of resources was a bit depressing and made me not want to share anything right now. I must finish what I had begun right? So I must keep this blog going in order for me to see my beginning when I reach my end which is success. Maybe a little beyond that who knows? Recently gone back to Sugar Bar. Alex was kind enough to check out the music I needed to be played so I can see what I'm used to. He worked on the Stephanie Mills song, "I feel good all over". The previous week I had planned to go but the counselor here forgot 2 give me a pass for the night. This week I stayed on her until I got it. So as I'm singing the song it goes well with the music. The guy on the keyboard blamed Alex's Music Chart for being wrong. He said he couldn't follow it. Alex just you and me that was not the case. It looks fine to me. But despite that I kept singing. The crowd went nuts! The standing ovation I got was crazy! Even Mrs Simpson was on her feet not to mention Freddie Jackson. Ok so, why was Mrs. Kathy, Mrs. Simpson and Freddie Jackson singing the background music for me? My mind was blown! And on top of that I was asked to sing another song! and of course I chose Patti LaBelle, "if only you knew. the place went nuts. My face got hot and I couldn't stop smiling. as I hugged people and made my way back upstairs to the bar where I Sat I was elated. When I reached when I reached the landing upstairs I got a lot of Cheers. I was waived to a table of 5. I was introduced to the George Faison! Who is known as the choreographer for The Wiz! He has a show "ain't misbehavin" that I might get a part in! I love this place. Life is full of surprises and I'm glad I'm getting nice ones this time. It's time for bed because tomorrow I work from 7 to 7.
