Part of the many resolutions for 2012 was to do something crazy every month. For the month of March I signed up for a singing competition.
It’s turning out that doing something crazy every month is pushing me to do the things that I’ve always wanted to but just haven’t. I’m really excited to inform you that I will be auditioning for the British-American crossover television show, The X Factor on FOX on May 1 in Greensboro, North Carolina.

I am incredibly floored.
I realized the other day that I have been spending a lot of time focusing on my other talents, instead of the one true talent that has *always* been there, which is singing. I’ve always struggled with believing in myself, yet I know that what comes out of me feels amazing. My soul is lifted every time I hit those high notes.
In all honesty, I am doing this for me. But above all else, I’m doing this for people who never had someone to encourage them to go after what they know in their hearts they’re good at doing. I’m doing this for the dreamers.
Hoping I don’t hit a flat note down there in North Carolina, but also hoping to have fun. I’m not going in to win but to demonstrate having a fun time. I’ll be training a lot before May 1. I’m shopping for vocal trainers right now, actually.
Wish me luck, and I really appreciate any and all the support you can give me.
I’m like a runaway bride when it comes to singing, so keep me accountable. Haha.
