So… song choice is critical when you are in that VERY FOREIGN environment of an audition like the type used for The Voice. I really picked the wrong song and it didn’t translate well as an A Capella song. I kept working it over and thought it would be fine, but NO!
Lesson learned. Choose something VERY melodic so it doesn’t need accompaniment. And I also think that if I do another audition like this I will hire an audition coach. Auditioning is so different than performing.
The next challenge I am interested in is the International Blues Challenge. I want to win the local competition and the big one in Memphis. I’ll keep you posted about the date for our competition in Reno, word is they are looking at August. Hope you will all be there – it is a great day of music!
