her audition to start(check out her waiting video here), she played with the Etch-A-Sketch, a woman walked over.
Tina: Hi, is this where the auditions are to being held?
Sydney: Yes! Are you here to audition? Tina: Yes! Hi, I’m Tina. Are you auditioning too? Sydney: Yes, I’m Sydney!
Sydney is still unsure when to do the whole handshake thing and how to do it!
Sydney: What are you planning to do for you audition?
Sydney was a little taken back. This woman was a professional and she was auditioning here. The competition might be more that she imagined.
Tina: So you play the guitar? Sydney: Yes, I’ve been playing for three years. Tina: I am just learning to play the piano so that I can write my own songs. Sydney had not thought about writing her own songs.
Sydney: I am thinking about entertaining as a career, do you have any suggestions? Tina thought about her answer. Tina: Well, I’m guessing you are in high school; I would say stay in school and learn as much as you can. While you are in high school, all of your education is free. After high school you’ll have to pay to learn things. People might try to take advantage of you. The more you know the better prepared you are. Also, you have to have your wits about you. Musically, expose you self to all kinds of music. I sing jazz but I have studied classical voice, gospel, R&B and rock. Try new things and collaborate with others. All that will help make you more rounded as a performer.
Sydney now wanted to hear Tina sing. Just then a guy came up. Is this where the auditions are held?
They both said yes in unison. Tre’: Hey, I’m Tre’. Sydney! Tina! Tre’ thought he would put the moves on them later. Right now, he needed to find Khaleel. He took out his cell phone and began to dial.
Sydney and Tina returned to their conversation.
Sydney: Do you find it hard to survive as a singer? Tina: I do OK! I don’t have a record deal or anything yet. I do a lot of voice over work, some back up singing and studio work. I’m not living on the street or anything but I do watch my money!
Well, it look like things are going to get on their way! Will Sydney make the cut? What will Tre' be doing? Is Tina too big a fish for this little pond? Come back and see!
