The Voice Update

Pickle had her audition last Saturday for "The Voice" and she had a great time. I have to give that girl a LOT of credit. I would never have the confidence to stand up in front of a group of strangers and belt out a song -especially knowing one of those strangers was there to judge me. But she did, and she was the only one in her group to be asked to stay and sing a second song!!

HOW COOL IS THAT?

There were thousands of people there that day, and only a very few "call back" sheets handed out. Although she didn't get an immediate call back, she was told to be sure to leave her number, as they might possibly call her back within the next couple of weeks. Whether or not that happens is yet to be seen, but if it does, or if it doesn't, it was still great for her to hear from someone else, what we've been telling her all along - that she CAN sing! The judge in the room that day told her he liked the tone of her voice and her style. He also told her that if she didn't get a call back this time to be sure to keep practicing and come and audition again for next season. That beats the heck out of "thanks, but we aren't interested..."

So, we are keeping our fingers crossed that she gets the call back, and in the meantime, she continues to practice and learn new songs. She learned this one yesterday...
