The secret's out! I had the privilege of auditioning for Season 8 and I can't tell you all enough what a crazy roller coasters ride it's been.
I got to meet so many wonderful people and check off another thing off my list of wonderful musical experiences. I can't tell you all enough how kind and caring the staff is, but the musicians you see go up there singing their heart out, they are GOOD folks. People who have big dreams with hearts that match. I get that music takes hard work and that television shows aren't what they always seem, but the contestants are real human beings with real aspirations and are doing what they believe will take them onto the path of their story and succeed.. To give yourself chances and believe in yourself enough to take them is everything. I can't wait to see these people win in life even more! So haters, BYE.
I was bummed that my auditioned didn't end up the way I wanted to, it would've been great to experience being coached by some of the very people I listened to growing up but they all agreed they heard something in me. I just have to work harder and keep doing my thing.
I was terrified of what would happen if I aired, how people would perceive my "failure" of not getting chairs turned, but ultimately it was the enemy trying to bring me down and take away all the goodness that surrounded this experience. Not everyone gets a chance to say they got to audition in the Blinds and experience this.. Plus Pharrell took the effort to walk over and hug me to reassure me and who doesn't like that?! Ultimately God was asking me if I was happy with closing the music chapter in my life but He opened this door wide open for me to walk through and see what was on the other side. I found a rejuvenated love for music.
