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.

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.Read More
