How I Followed My Heart, Gut & Intuition
So what if I don’t want to feel confined to my training of classical voice? What if I love opera – but I love pop, jazz and musical theater as well? After years of trying desperately hard to choose just one, I have finally given into the idea that I am a stylistically versatile singer. I can sing anything – and I love to sing everything!
Long term, I’d love to continue singing in movies/television shows, charity events, intimate venues and glamorous parties. I consider my music soulful and sophisticated. My style lacks fluff and, instead, focuses on truly beautiful, quality, live singing that changes lives.
A True Singer Will Always Follow Her Heart
After many years of professional singing, I have learned to grind less and flow more. What does this mean? It means being ready to serve the world with my music, but being unwilling to compromise my joy. This means that I sing what I want to sing, where I want to sing it, in the manner I feel is best for me. This means I say NO to most of the music projects that are offered to me. I really listen to my gut-instincts as an artist, rather than trying to please the powers that be. I pour my soul into my singing, and so my personal joy is my greatest priority.
I Love Singing When It’s Done MY WAY!
I love my voice more now than ever before. The older I get, the more I truly fall in love with my musical gifts! I am deeply grateful to God for giving me the courage to stay the course all these years. I’ve been singing professionally since I was 10 years old. I am content to go where the wind takes me when it comes to my voice.
If you know of any singers that could use some motivation to continue following their heart, gut or intuition – please like and share! <3
