The Chrissy Morgan Newsletter Volume :3 (8/4/16)

Hello There!!! ------------------------------------------------------------ Friday, July 22, 2016. That's the date that I hope to remember as my last day as a waitress. I have retired!!! I've mentioned this in a newsletter before almost 10 years ago and tried to pursue other sources of income before hopping back onto the wagon. This time the difference is that I'm focused on doing ONLY what I love and making sure I get paid for it. Singing. Now there's a lot that goes along with that one category (recording, practicing, teaching, writing, promoting, performing, learning, scheduling,etc.) and it is definitely work, but it's work that I enjoy. And the paths do start to open once you set your mind to what that deep passion is. I swear every time I put it out there, it pays off. Sometimes within minutes after responding to an email.  This is all so new to me. It is really hard to stay focused. I'm ashamed to say I spent an entire day just playing solitaire challenge because I wasn't sure where to start because my to do list got too long and intimidating. I've been losing track of days and these weeks are going by faster

The Chrissy Morgan Newsletter Volume : 2 (6/9/16)

** Hello There!!! ------------------------------------------------------------ If  you are ever curious about how you're doing professionally in your life, redo your resume. It's life changing. It reminded me
that it's ok to have so many irons in the fire as long they they push you forward. It also made me genuinely proud of myself
like I haven't been before.  To see it all right there on paper was a concrete affirmation of my continued success. 
Now it's been a long time since I even had to evaluate all of my past projects. The reason for this new found resume

The Chrissy Morgan Newletter Volume:1 (2/26/16)

** Hello There!!! ------------------------------------------------------------ Well look out world!! The Chrissy Morgan Newsletter is BACK! Thanks so much for saying
"YES"!  I remember back in the day posting on Myspace to send out my newsletter. Or that
time that I tried to send out 500 emails on Gmail. That failed. I was locked out of my
email for a week while they debated whether I was sending out spam or not.  Don't do

The Audition

A couple of weeks ago, on a fluke I sent in a video audition for a television sponsored competition. This video got me a callback to the second round!! That second round was nerve-racking to say the least. Sign in here, smile for the camera, walk down that aisle, sign in here, wait for your turn, stand on that stage, say your name, sing your song, "Thank you!". It was over in less then 20 minutes. When I walked out of the building I felt a wave of excitement. Not because...

Chrissy Morgan -- Part of Me

Sooo... It's been a while since I'v actually had time to reflect, sit, and decide to write something "new" for my newsletter?? It used to be a monthly email that I sent out until my mailing list got too big for gmail and I was threatened with a shut down for sending "spam". Even though I barely have any time this month to do laundry, I have a bunch on this brain of mine and this seems to be the best outlet to reveal it all. You see, by the end of this month, I will have learned harmonies for over 30 new songs for 4 different bands, done 2 different radio interviews, and have performed live over 10 times!!

What music does for an audience and what it does for me.

So 2010 has been a very interesting year for me.  I'v been blessed with a new nephew from my brother and his wife, my husband and I have found a new spark and respect in our relationship, we updated our house with some much needed improvements, I got to perform at a music festival and put out a new CD online with my band, Bricktown Station, and I have to say, that I have performed live more than I ever have in my life!!! That last one has really changed me this year. I guess we'll call it growth.
