Journey For A Chance

“The Song”

Posted on: July 14, 2010

Well…after much thought, consideration, and practice I have decided on my audition song for American Idol. Now, on FB I gave a list of 5 songs and asked people their opinions. This song wasn’t even on there because I didn’t think about it until after I made the list. I heard it on Pandora and I remembered how much I love the song. Searching online, the suggestion is to have 3 songs in case you are asked to sing something else (which the other 2 I have picked WERE on my list). And the winner is….The Power of Love – Celine Dion (pop). I bought it on iTunes since I couldn’t find my cd I had it on. I actually tried it out on a group of about 8 coworkers and they seemed to like it so that is the official song. The other two songs I have on stand-by are Blessed – Martina McBride (country) and I Will Not Be Moved – Natalie Grant (gospel). I picked these because I will have songs from 3 different genres, if they ask.

Now to pack and get ready to leave tomorrow after work. I have so much to do tonight; work till 5, workout from 5:30 – 7, Church from 7-8, and then I have to go home, do laundry, and pack. Not to mention I have to work tomorrow until 4:30. Everytime I think about auditions, my stomach starts turning. I’m not one to get nervous usually, but this has been an adventure so far. Oh well…I guess my brain understands that this could go either way. I’ve never been one to like rejection either. In fact, I loathe rejection. This is just something I have to accept and remember that rejection is more of the potential than not. Very good singers are let go on these auditions. I watched a YouTube video the other day and believe me…GOOD singers are rejected in every city. So, I’m just trying to remain calm, breathe steady, and trust that God has my back in whatever I do.

I will hopefully be updating regularly, when I remember (and as long as my phone has battery). I understand, though, that if you get to a certain point in the competition you are not allowed to share how far you’ve made it. But if I don’t make it, I will be sure to let everyone know (if I can). If you’re reading this, I’m glad you’re interested in my journey. I only have a few good friends so getting to talk with someone indirectly is kinda fun. Have a wonderful day!
