I’ve been feeling a little deflated lately.
While there have been many amazing blessings and many opportunities that I’m thankful for, my music has been declined for a few opportunities because of “out of tune vocals”.
So, on August 11th, I released FALL AGAIN & SLOW DANCE online...
It's so weird. I feel like nothing has really changed and yet everything has changed... Even though I only have a handful of fans & followers, I feel strangely legitimized; all this work I've done over the last year and a half seems to have a lot more meaning and purpose now - I'm so grateful for that.
This week has been rough.
One friend's brother died tragically at 27 years old, my husband's grandmother on his stepdad's side passed away suddenly (leaving her husband a widower after 58 years of marriage), a friend's husband unexpectedly passed away very young and 6 days after finding out they're expecting, and then to top it all off, Chester Bennington (Linkin' Park) committed suicide today (and OJ Simpson got parole, but that's neither here nor there).
So, I woke up at 3:15am (Well, I snoozed so it was more like 3:24, but 3:15 sounds better) Thursday morning (or Wednesday night, depending on who you ask). I went and picked up three teenage girls and met them at a local lake to shoot the night scenes for the "Fall Again" music video. I did my makeup and hair myself and was excited that at that ungodly hour I still managed to pull my look decently together... or so I thought.
