Sing if you Can

I like to sing, I go to Karaoke, 3 times a week at 3 different venues, if I have the time. I enjoy being centre stage when I am at Karaoke, but I have a very limited repertoire of 6 songs. My singing claim to fame, is that I auditioned for X-Factor in 2010. I never got onto the TV Show though, but really loved the experience though.

Got to Sing

My love of singing started in Church, when I was very young and was going to Sunday School. I was always shy at being under the 'spotlight', but really enjoyed singing with a group of children. My parents were Christians and brought me up in their faith. I especially loved the music and singing in Pentecostal Churches, as every member of the congregation would really let their their it all out when they were singing and praising the Lord.

When I was 19 years old, I was asked to be part of a Church choir. I was very nervous, as I am not the best singer, by a long way. Yet, the choir masters, were both familiar to me, as they were Deaconesses in the Church. They managed to help me to train my voice, so that it improved.

One day, when we performed 3 Gospel songs as a choir in Church, we did so to rapturous applause from the congregation. I had a solo spot in one of the songs and I was absolutely amazed at the end of the Church service at how many people came up and complimented me on my singing! It gave me a feeling of comfort and I felt like I was being wrapped up in sunshine. I must admit though, it did not give me any real confidence in my ability as a singer, but it is always going to be the most stand alone moment in my life, of myself as a singer.

X-Factor here I ccome

From the moment that X-Factor hit our TV screens I was hooked. So were my children. It was great family entertainment. By the 2nd year, I was telling my children that one day, I would be auditioning for X-Factor. It started as a family joke, as my children understand that in spite of outward appearances to the contrary, I am very shy.

In 2009, I sent off my application to audition for X-Factor and persuaded my older Sister Hope to send off hers as well. We were both over the moon when we got letters inviting us to audition on Sunday 2nd May 2010 at the London ExCeL Centre. Our X-Factor journey had begun.

As I had a back injury and my sister Hope had a leg injury and was on crutches, we were in the 1st group of people to be allowed in the building to be processed and auditioned, but it was still a lot of waiting around. We were able to sit inside for most of the time on comfortable chairs. It was so exciting to be part of the X-Factor buzz. There were so many other singers of every age, colour, race, both male and female, but this did not bother me. I was definitely not fooling myself that I was going to end up on the TV show. It was explained to us, that to get on the TV show, you had to get to the 4th round of auditions and I had no hope of accomplishing that feat. My sister Hope, who was a much more talented singer, had a real fighting chance though.

My son Marcus was only 10 years old at the time and got to share in the excitement with us, as I had to get permission from his Primary School for him to miss a day of School and his Headmistress had readily agreed. This was after going to be a once in a lifetime opportunity for Marcus to be part of the X-Factor dream machine.

Hope and I were put into 2 different audition groups and went into separate audition rooms. We had to stand alone on a big X in the room and sing to a panel of 3 people (who were either researchers or production staff) for our 1st audition. I was not nervous, as I had no chance of getting through this 1st audition. I just wanted to be able to say in years to come, that I had taken a small part in X-Factor and had my X-Factor number to prove it! I was absolutely stunned when I got through to the 2nd round and was invited to my 2nd audition. Especially as my sister Hope was not invited to audition again, and trust me, she is a much better singer than me.

Hope was disappointed, but she very generously came with me to my 2nd audition on Tuesday 4th May 2010. After my 2nd audition, I was out of the competition, but was still happy and buzzing that I had finally been given that chance to be part of the whole X-Factor production and to prove to my children, that in spite of my being shy, I could take the bull by the horns and audition for X-Factor.

Karaoke Queen

I sing all the time at home, but I only had the courage to start singing in public on my own, when I a friend took me along to a local pub which had a Karaoke night. At first, I could not get up and sing and when I eventually did a few weeks later, it was not good. I was so nervous, that you could hear my voice quavering and I was bathed in sweat. Good job my deodorant was so effective.

As I am teetotal, I do not usually frequent pubs, by on that first night, I felt at home in the pub, drinking my bottle of still water and loved the other singers Karaoke performances, that I could not wait to return.

Now, even though I literally only have a choice of 6 songs that I sing at Karaoke, I absolutely love singing at Karaoke. I am not good at learning new songs, so that is why I tend to sing the same 6 songs over and over again. Occasionally I do get up the courage to sing a song that I am familiar with that I do not really know well, as I get sick of the sound of my voice singing the same songs again and again, even if other people enjoy hearing me sing them.

I have had many people over the years come up and compliment me on my singing, but it does not go to my head. There are always much better singers than me at all of the Karaokes that I have ever been part of over the years. I love to listen to other people sing, no matter what sort of talent they have. Sometimes the bad singers are the ones, that still give a great performance, because they have so much charisma and stage presence, that the audience really warms to them. What I love most about Karaoke, is that everyone's singing is applauded and respected regardless of their level of singing talent.

Long live Karaoke!!!!!!!

I have always liked to write. I write poetry and short stories, but I have never had the confidence in my writing to try to see it published before, so I am going to give it a try, at last!
