PostSubject: Singing!   Sun Aug 17, 2008 1:06 am

Hi. I am a SEMI-semi-professional when it comes to singing. I have auditioned for a Broadway show (Baby Louise in Gypsy) and I perform at local talent shows. I have memorized the FULL soundtracks of 4 Broadway shows (Wicked, Les Mis, South Pacific and Kiss Me Kate). So, is anyone as into singing as I am? I don't mean the obsession with the Jonas Brothers and other pop-singers. I mean being able to bear musical theater songs. Most people I know seem to think Showtunes are WEIRD *points to Kaikai*. Are there any geeks like me out there?

Singing Geeks:

~Bellatrix~
Star2Be
DramaQueen

What we're working on:

~Bellatrix~ is working on perfecting this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5liuHR6wug
Star2Be is working on perfecting:
"I Have A Dream" from Mamma Mia
"All You Wanted" Michelle Branch
"Scala de Terzi" (I can't remember how to spell it) Which is Italian, something I have to do for voice lessons
"Notice Me Horton" from Seussical
"Defying Gravity" form Wicked

So join, tell me what you like to sing, any songs you're working on, etc.

Hey, I am a Semi-professional when it comes to singing/performing. I take voice lessons every week. But, I am not a weird child star who's whole life revolves around performing. Many of my friends are like that, and have been on Broadway many times (ex- Jane Banks in Mary Poppins, Chip in Beauty and the Beast, Annie in Annie, Young Cosette in Les Mis, Marta in the Sound of Music, etc) . My mom and dad gave me the choice if I wanted to have an agent and manager, go on tour, take TONS of dancing, acting and singing classes (about quadruple what I take now) and give up my life to be an actress, but I chose not to. I have been asked to skip the first 3 cuts of a Broadway audition and just go to the the last 2 auditions, but I turned down the offer because I would have to leave school and be tutored, quit all my other activites, not be able to see my friends, and spend day after day on Broadway. I chose not to do that. I perform because I love it and am excellent at it, not because it is my job. I have entered and won radio singing contests, starred in many performances, won awards at recitals, I do take voice lessons, perform for charity events, sing at talent shows, cantor at my church, and sing the National Anthem for baseball games, but I do this all and still have a life. I will never do what my friends do. I love to perform/sing, and that's why I do it.

Oh yeah, I am working on these songs:

"I Have A Dream" from Mamma Mia
"All You Wanted" Michelle Branch
"Scala de Terzi" (I can't remember how to spell it) Which is Italian, something I have to do for voice lessons
"Notice Me Horton" from Seussical
"Defying Gravity" form Wicked
And more I'll put later!

Wow. You sound amazing. I'm pretty much done with perfecting Defying Gravity. It's one of my favorite songs. I usually don't get auditions because my voice is very mature sounding. Not exactly 10 year old-ish. I really would trade plaaces with you. I would love to have an agent/manager, but my dad is my agent for now.

I am trying to get some of my friends to join me to perform at local nursing homes, hospital etc. You are really a great role model for young actor and actresses.

Thanks! I've also done Defying Gravity, but I am harmonizing with myself now! Like, I perfect Elphaba's part (done that!) and then my voice teacher records it (done!). Then, we do Glinda's part and I harmonize to Elphaba! It's so cool! I did the one you posted last year, it's a really fun song! You'll like it a lot!
Thanks! If you ever need any advice, let me know!

Holla, That's nice to know. I'm the oppisite.

Shut up, Kai. Les Mis doesn't 'stink', that is unless you consider well composed music bad compared to the 'music' you listen to. Les Mis is acclaimed by the people smart enough to listen to it without criticizing it. You have no reason to troll like that, and really should be punished for that. I'm surprised people here accept you. <.< If anyone isn't sadly biased towards her, PLEASE delete that post.It's not only spam, but unneeded and not related to the topic! :@

Oh my god. Everyone sings in front of something blah blah blah. The best I've done was about 250 people at my school. x.x I'm not familiar with the songs you're talking about, DramaQueen, but sounds good. =)

Star2Be, by Falsetto do you mean my head voice? Well. . . Not too high. But once I'm up in my head/soprano voice I can hit all the Glitter and be [Happy] notes. I can go pretty much as low as "I'm Not That Girl" and "I Dreamed a Dream" go. . . I think when I mature I'll be more Mezzo-Soprano than Soprano. XD

I'm REALLY angry, you know why? Because last year the weirdoes who ran the Drama Club only gave leads to the grade above me, no matter how bad they were. I'm serious, the girl who sang Popular made me want to die. And now, this year, they're not even doing the Drama Club. Grrr. . .

Loving to sing is good enough. =P And making up songs is great. I stink when it comes to melodies, but for some reason I could be a good lyricist.

I'm glad to hear that. Especially glad that you're not a closeminded Hannah Montana freak. =S

Well, I am very shy and I could NEVER in a million years preform in front of people. But I do like to sing. Maybe I will make a video of me singing, so you guys could hear me, but I wouldn't actually have to be in front of anyone. I don't think I'm good enought to be on Broadway or anything, but I guess I'm okay.. I'll make the video later. I'll sing Bubbly by Colbie Calliat. =]

Well, y'know what's ironic? I can never perform just infront of people, but once it's onstage I explode. XD Like, these girls asked me to sing and I was freaked out, but whenever it's a 'real' performance, I can do it. Maybe it's that way with you. Can't wait to see the video! I'm going to voice some of the Webkinz singing (good or bad) in the Webkinz Idol I'm doing with my friend. Once we can get a working camera, that is. . .

I don't think it's that way with me.. The only person who's ever heard me sing is my little brother. We always make Webkinz Idol together. I'm not sure when I will make the video, but it will be sometime soon, I hope! Maybe I'll go make it right now..

Oh well, at least people hear you sing. I know people who say they sound good, but get out of singing (and/or humiliating themselves) by saying "I'm too shy" or "I don't like the sound of my voice". Have fun with you video. =P

I officially HATE you. =)
You're perfect. PERFECT I SAY. >.< My voice lessons stink, and we can't quit because the guy is too nice. I get no solos. ;_; I get no extreme semi-fame. No. I get "Oh my goodness, you were so cute when you sang sweetie!" from the old people and "Great job!" from the guys at my temple. I don't get state records or anything!
Guess what? I the most unknown singer in the history of my state! And I don't get POOP in the school plays? Why? Because I'm a geek. A geek who is somewhat educated, who doesn't go with the flow, and most of all, doesn't watch Disney Channel. THAT is the reason no one really gives a turd.\
I hate you. In a friendly way.

Lulz. Hehe, well my dad said auditioning is a paradox. They only want you if you've got nice stuff on your resume, but then how are you supposed to get stuff on your resume?
