On Sunday night I enrolled in a singing contest. I was sick as a dog and the only reason why I enrolled was because I thought that the first place prize was 200 dollars in cash.
I put my name in the hat at 9 p.m. I did not get called up on stage until midnight. I sing the journey song don't stop believing. There were three judges the highest possible score that you can get is a 30 just like on the show so you think you can dance.
There were about 40 contestants. At 1215 the semifinalists were announced I was one of them. at about 12:30 I was called up to do my final song. I chose greatest hero of all by Whitney Houston.
I got a perfect score again. I was awarded not cash but a $200 gift certificate! despite being in excruciating unbearable physical pain that will not go away, I was mentally on a high for about 48 hours.
It was exciting to have the judges personally come up to me afterwards and tell me what they thought about my voice :-) I have a severe sinus infection and I'm excited because if I can pull this off with a sinus infection, then who knows what I'm made of :-)
