Was it the best song I have ever sang? No. I was so nervous and my hands were shaking. I was hoping that I was in tune and for most of the time I thought my heart was going to leap out my chest but, something amazing happened. Half way though my audition I noticed that Dan (our choir leader) was writing something down. I took a deep breath and gave it all I had and he looked up and smiled at me. From that moment on, my nerves were gone and the encouragement from just that smile made it worth stepping outside my comfort zone.
Nearly 4 years later, I still get that same buzz when we sing on stage. When you catch members of the audience smiling at you and sometimes, singing along, it gives me a boost. It really is that simple for me. Singing is the thing that as a group we create, together. We have strong harmonies and dance moves and when you get to see the effect that has on people watching, it is all worth it. Put that up against the thrill you get when you are on stage and it becomes something that you just cant get anywhere else. Step outside of your comfort zone. You wont regret it. You’ll be wanting to audition every day!
