Let the Music Play!

Well......I made it to Laughlin, NV and have made it through the registration and orientation for Talent Quest Nationals 2009! We've got another great group of singers from all over the globe. We have several singers from New Zealand, six from Canada, one from Russia and another from Guam!

The contest grows every year and, if I do say myself, continues to improve. So far we're just over halfway through the first round of competition in the female categories. By the time my head hits the pillow tonight, I will have heard 120 singers!

Although I have no desire to be a performer, music plays such a big role in my life. I can tie a song to all the great moments in my life and many a song can take me back to the glory days of high school and college in an instant! I'm a sucker for good lyrics and if you add a killer bridge to a song, I'm in heaven! Even the worst of the singers in any competition have my adimiration for getting on the stage and doing what they feel in their heart.

You can pour your soul out singing
a song you believe in
that tomorrow they’ll forget you ever sang
Sing it anyway,
sing it anyway

I sing,
I dream,
I love,

You know I totally feel ya on that one, girlie. AND.. if DeAnna, Miss Biotch herself, hadn't stolen my tat idea, that would have been what I inked on my body, LOL. I always give her shit that maybe her Kanji symbols (or whatever they are) may actually mean something else entirely... how is she to really know? LOL Hmmm.. Eat. Drink. Shit. That could be it!

LOL-- love ya, Dee, in case you stumble over to the Star Shaped World and see this:)

Glad you're having fun & I envy you all the great music you are hearing. And WOW! Guam??? That's awesome! TQ must have some incredible owners to bring in talent from so far away:) *wink*
