I had the honor of rehearsing with world class vocal coach Debra Byrd (known as ‘Byrd’-okay, how cool is that!?!). She has sung and recorded with the world’s best recording artists and is the vocal coach and arranger for American and Canadian Idol (…and this is just the tip of her talent iceberg!). Yup! I am going to audition for Simon Cowell’s new show “The X Factor” on March 27th and, I must confess…I am scared shi*less!!!
Still…my journey to the LA Sports Arena, where the auditions will be held, has already been amazing. I will continue to share the steps I’ve taken, including the highs, lows, cools, and woes, but will now leave you with this pearl Byrd shared with me during our session: “Bring the joy!”
Okay…well…at least it’s a start.
Oh, an awesome “shout-out” to my cousin Heide for getting me into this mess…haha…just jiv’n. In all sincerity, I am very touched by your thoughtfulness. Heideeeeeeee-ho!
