Happy Sunday, music nerds!
Yesterday I told you that I had submitted a video audition to Oprah Winfrey’s Your OWN Show contest. Well, my video is now live on the site and available for viewing and voting!! Please click here to watch and vote!!
Here’s a screenshot from the video — Clicking on it will also take you to the site where you can view it:
Voting is open until July 3 at 11:59 pm PST. The rules say you can vote “as often as you like,” and if there’s a limit, I haven’t found it yet! But I did notice that it takes time for the number to change. I’ll just keep clicking til they tell me to stop! 😀
I wish I’d heard about this contest earlier than a week or so ago, but I’m very glad I managed to submit an audition video by the deadline. The truth is, I’ve had the dream of doing a TV show like this for a while. I had only told a couple of people about it, because it seemed crazy and farfetched, and I was a little bit embarrassed to reveal having such a crazy, farfetched dream. But you know what? The process of making the video was a transformative experience for me. I was hating speaking to the camera at first, but I grew more comfortable with it the more I did it. And now, I’m proud to share my dream with the world. Oh, I still know it’s crazy, but after all, I have a reputation to uphold! 😉
