Today started with errands and an audition. I spent Sunday evening straightening my hair and rolling it but by the time I got to the station I looked like James Brown's mug shot. Smh I did my best to fix it. I look nothing like my headshot now. lol
I got to the audition for "Soul Doctor" and was shocked that I got seen before lunch break. I came in at 12 and they break from 1-2. I used the sheet music that was passed out of the Japan audition and sung "The Edge of Glory" by Gaga. My start was a bit shakey. if I didn't love it. I don't think the chic did either. There was just one person judging and an accompanist. But hey, I tried. I'm so glad I go see the ENT Dr on Wednesday. I really need an overhaul on my vocals. After it was over I walked to the job placement place to get a referral for yet another job interview and the guy tells me to try out "Village Underground ". I was like "yeah I heard of it" about to cut him off when he said that Cheryl Pepsi Riley hosts it. My mouth fell open! So, do you remember when I went to Fat Black Pushy Cats about a month ago? It's the same place! I was just in the wrong area!! Smh It's a $12 cover charge though. My friend James just sent me $50 to go towards my phone bill and now I have to dip into it. I MUST get in!
I took a good enough cat nap before heading out even still, my eyes are red. This place is dark so Im sure no one will notice. Now what am I singing? With my voice being so unpredictable I'm not sure.
I'm early! No surprise there. They sent me back up the stairs and asked me to wait 10 more minutes. I start up the stairs and almost fall backwards! Damn these weak knees and heels! Iook good though! lol I'm sitting by the top of the stairs now and Tony ( the bass player from Sugar Bar) is here! He told me from now on I should call him and get put on his list when I know I'm coming! YAY! IM IN! For next time that is. Phone bill money will be spent today. :-( OmGs I'm so hungry. I just realized that I missed dinner and lunch.
I had a good time! The trumpet player and one of the AMAZING singing lady did the song "Say Yes " by Floetry and the trumpet player proposed to his girlfriend during his solo! It was beautiful! The crowd went WILD! SHE SAID YES! OMGS! Talk about fun! love is a beautiful thing. Because of check in I left the place after two more singers. I hope you enjoy the video I'm posting. I will always rep A Town!
Good night world!
I FEEL GOOD ALL OVER: http://youtu.be/vXz9zSwg08I
