When I was little,like really little, mydaddy used totravel back andforth between hereand Nashville,Tennessee with hisband making aliving and such. Soyou could prettymuch say I grew uparound music.
I was told that at the age of 2 or 3 I wouldwalk around my house just singing away,in my own little world. Often times nobodyreally knew what I was saying.
As I got a little older my sister,cousin and I would make updances and sing to our family. They would always cheer for usand say we were so good... but Im pretty sure it was just so theywouldnt hurt our feelings.
At the age of 9 my dad askedme to preform with him onstage under the pavillion. Ididnt think that I would ever beable to get up in front of allthose people and sing, but I didit and between then and now Ihave preformed with my dadatleast 10 times.
Its been a crazy experience being able to sing onstage with my dad. But he and my mom have taughtme a lot about confidence and how I can become abetter singer, I cant thank them enough for that.
I joined choir my8th grade year andam now in theChamber Singerschoir. I must admitgoing from justsinging by myselfto blending andsharing with theother people of mychoir, has definetlychanged myoutlook on music.
This past summer I played the part of Violet inGaylord Community Productions preformance of"Willy Wonka", thinking I could widen my horizons.Oddly enough it ended up helping me a lot.
I DONT CALL MY SINGING ATALENT, I CALL IT A HOBBY,A STRESS RELIEVER, ANENTERTAINMENT. IT REALLYIS SOMETHING I ENJOYDOING.
