Hello there! Yes, I’m a day late on the blog post....but what are ya gonna do, ya know? I was busy doing......laundry.....yep that’s it. All day...anyway. (<—— lame bit)
I have some exciting news to share. I’ve already blasted social media about this so if you follow me you probs already know. But in case you didn’t know, The Lions Lincoln Theater in Massillon (for the past few years) has hosted a mock Voice competition called The Massillon Voice. It’s an awesome vocal competition for people age 18 and up (if I’m not mistaken they have a competition for younger ages as well). I’m not exactly sure how competition goes as far as how word for word it mimics the real show, but I’m sure you get the gist of what it is. I decided I would like to audition and so I scheduled a meeting with the director.
Last Saturday I met with her at the theater and auditioned with “I’m Not the Only One” by Sam Smith. I’m very confident with talking and performing in front of people, but I get extremely nervous when it comes to auditions for this type of stuff. If you didn’t know, my last audition with American Idol went horribly wrong when my voice cracked. Fortunately, I got through the singing and the director was impressed! Yaaaaaaayyyy! We then went into her office after that and discussed what would happen next and what I should expect.
I waited till now to blog about this because even though she pretty much told me I made it, she didn’t explicitly say “yeah you’re in.” I knew I had to wait for an email over the weekend and I finally got one a couple days ago. So, yeah I’m going to be a part of the show with 23 other contestants. We have a meeting tomorrow so I’ll have more details soon enough. The show is August 10 and tickets are $15. They can be purchased on the Lions Theater website. I believe they will also sell them at the door.
I know what song I’m going to sing, but I won’t spoil that just yet because, well, suspense 😬.
If this show goes well, I guess I’ll have to tackle the REAL Voice! Eh, either way I’m still going to try and audition for the real thing 😉. That’s all I got for now. Goodbye 😬.
