If a window of opportunity appears, don’t pull down the shade.
Hello everyone. This blog post is a special and possibly short one. A few days ago, I told you all that I was going to audition for a talent show at PHCC. For those of you who don’t know it, it’s a community college in Florida.
For a while, I thought the auditions were going to be last Monday. But then I found out that they were going to be today (Saturday). I was in two separate numbers. The first number I was in was a tap number. It was an Irish step, and I think we did a lot better than we thought we would. We were going a little faster than the music, but we did our best and had fun.
My second number was a singing number. I sang “My Heart Will Go On” by Celine Dion — my idol. Again, I did and felt a LOT better than I thought I would. People I didn’t know told me I did well, and that made me feel good.
My grandmother was able to tape my tap performance, but she was so fascinated with my singing that she forgot to videotape it. So I apologize for those who wanted me to put my singing video up here. The people at PHCC recorded it on a professional-looking camera, but that’s about it. I will post up my tap performance, though, and I will tell you which one is me.
More than 70 people auditioned, and the real talent show is on September 29. The judges will pick 15 out of the 70 people to be in the finals. Third place gets $200, second place gets $300, and first place gets $500.
I am waiting to see if I get contacted to be in the finals. I am so excited, and thanks to my friends and those of you who wished me luck. Tomorrow, I will post of the Irish Step video. Hope you all have an amazing week! :)
