Oh well...I guess it's okay to tell you now. I was put forward to sing a new song at The Brandenburg Gate in Berlin on Friday,and the closing ceremonies of the World Cup on Sunday in South Africa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!BUT IT DID NOT
WORK OUT. I have been on an emotional rollercoaster since 1pm Friday,when I got the call from New York. The few people who went against the ones who really wanted me to do it,wanted a "BIG INTERNATIONAL SUPERSTAR". I have prayed,cried,had a half a nervous breakdown,prayed some more.I swallowed my pride through this whole process. But the best part is to know that I was in the running with Celine Dion,Stevie Wonder,Seal,Eric Clapton and Robin Gibb..:)THAT's the COOLEST.
I just pulled out today after waiting all of that time,sending in a demo,driving my family crazy,etc. I tried,there were people in New York and London pulling for me,but I guess God said no again this time. I'm handling the disappointment alot better this time,and I really was not looking forward to postponing my show in Richmond on Friday. They undecided people had me hanging on a string it seemed and my mom laid down the law and told me to stop going through this and sing for the people who know and love me.
I understand they are looking for someone with more name recognition,but I wish they would have given me a CHANCE to show the world what I can do. I really believed this was my turn. Oh well..I'm going for a walk.. LOVE YOU. Smooches.
