#TBT September 14th 2007. It has been almost 7 years since I started doing #YouTube Cover songs. I have gained a lot from this and it has opened many doors for me. Because of my Youtube videos I was invited to a private #Voice audition for season 3 and I said no. My great friend Yusef Williams told me to sign up and audition. I did sign up online but didn’t go to the audition in June/July in NYC. Fast forward to September 10th 2012 I got an email from a Voice producer inviting me to a Private audition again. This time I said “You know what, what do I Have to lose?
I went to the Audition and sang “Climax” by Usher, “Stronger” by Kelly Clarkson, and “Sky scrapper” by Demi Lovato. I was picked to go to Hollywood and was there a week later preparing for my blind auditions which was 4-5 weeks away. Boom!! I made the cut. There was space for 48 people (12 per Team). I was like number 110 to audition out of 122 people and was the 47th contestant for #TheVoiceSeason4 (Even though on TV they said I was Shakira’s second contestant picked). I sang my heart out on those 2 episodes and gave it my all and left it all on the stage. It will always be something I remember for the rest of my life.
I’ve sang all over the US for private events, and many other shows in NYC. Because of September 14th 2007, I have gained 10,110,104 Views and 53,215 subscribers on Youtube. 14,631 likes on Facebook, 7,073 Follows on Twitter, and 4,362 follows on Instagram. To some these are just numbers, to me it’s people I have touched in some way with my voice and it means a lot to me.
I have many talents and I believe in following all of your dreams and investing in yourself and that I will do. I see a bright future for myself and I cannot wait to get there and will not allow anyone to stop me. I am looking forward to seeing you all on this ride with me in sharing my other gifts with you all. Food, Dance, Fashion, Art, and more.
Have a great Thursday
