"You guys wanna embarrass me don't you?"
I found out about a local competition happening and so I went for the audition but unfortunately for me it didn't go as planned. I flopped throughout the whole thing and ended up getting upset with myself thinking 'how can I travel all the way from where I live to embarrass myself like this?" I even thought the judges laughed at me while auditioning (couldn't blame them really).
As days went on I had it in mind I would definitely not be called back for the show; but they did.
When the day finally came to do some rehearsals and minor vocal lessons, thoughts were telling me they just want to embarrass me and just have a funny act to put on the show in order for it to be lively LOL! So I decided to speak my mind and say "you guys wanna embarrass me don't you?" To be honest I can't remember their reactions or responses, I just wanted to sing and face it!
When I got on stage my nerves kicked in so much because of other talented performances I heard before and there was a girl with such an amazing voice that was destined to win, but after the rehearsals and minor vocal lessons I had to go for it! I just sang even it wasn't perfect, I sang and the more I did the more I felt comfortable & confident! I DID IT!
At the end of the show, they presented the results 3rd, 2nd & 1st place. I came in 1st place and I seriously couldn't believe it. I was thinking WTF like literally how is this even possible but it was real. I won a trip to Spain for 2 at the Cala Mesquida Resort, which I took my best friend with me. Everything was amazing, the scenery was unreal and it was definitely a trip to relax and unwind..
Now I just go for the opportunities of sharing talent because I can, even if I think I can't and you can never tell what the result could be! Why not try it?? You think you can't BUT you can! Step out of your comfort zone today x
