30-day blog journal - Day 19

Day 19 - a talent of yours

Oh, gee, there are just sooooo many.  I kid, I kid.  Anyway, I think I'm a talented singer.  I don't really have a way to show you this, without putting up embarrassing footage on youtube, and that's not going to happen.

I love to sing.  I have always loved to sing.  We have these recordings from when I was a wee tot, just singing like crazy.  I would carry around my grandaddy's recorder (complete with microphone) - you know the one.  I would make news stories, sing at the top of my lungs, and boss my little sis around.

 Yep, almost that exact one, except ours was off-white in color.  EEEEEk.

Anyhow, back in 2006 I entered a little contest here on the Gulf Coast, called Emerald Coast Idol.  I came in 3rd place.  We had several rounds of auditions (like American Idol) and then a big Sing-Off at the Saenger Theatre (a nice swanky type place here in town).  Anyhow, it was so much fun, and I just loved it.

I have been in several musical groups, performed on stage in musicals, sung at numerous weddings, and I love singing at church.  I also super-love Karaoke, which is how I ended up performing on our latest cruise as Gloria Estefan (in front of the entire ship)!!

Here I am 'striking a pose' at the finale of our musical on the cruise!  HA!!!

These two are from the Emerald Coast Idol Competition.  I guess I'm kind of a big deal!! HAHAHAHA

I love to sing as well, but going by what you wrote, you're far better than me lol.

Do you have any of those old tapes of you as a child still around? You may want to transfer the recordings before the tapes deteriorate. The brown part of the tape has a nasty habit of just falling right off the plastic tape after a while.
