Today, I was contacted by someone hosting the Carolina Music Awards and it was suggested that I ask my listeners to nominate me. Honestly, I never really thought about it. Even though it would be an honor to be nominated, I don’t know how I would feel about it. Lol! It’s weird. I’ve been singing all my life – it’s my PASSION. When I sing, I honestly feel it DEEP, DOWN in my soul and the music, the lyrics, literally the vibrations from the speakers take me to a place where I just wanna be completely and absolutely engulfed in my passion. So that feeling alone is reward enough for me because I am finally doing what I’ve wanted to do since I was a small child. Weird…eh…maybe….maybe not.
I receive email and comments from fans encouraging me all the time. One message I received recently from a Facebook friend/fan said: “your video for your song “Fly” is awesome. i actually lived in the homeless shelter next to moore square some when i was little… it’s nice seeing something at my roots.” Then this person tells me that he/she has listened to my song to encourage them when he/she felt down. Now that’s deep! I responded with, I listen to it too for the same reasons. I totally believe in living by what you are putting out to your audience. Comments like these…wow…I feel and appreciate each and every one. It lets me know that not only am I on the right track, but I am helping someone out there. Someone can relate to my message.
So my award? The comments, love and support that I get from you. As they say during those award ceremonies…”it was nice to be nominated.” LOL!! Funny…I feel like I already have won an award just by being blessed to be able to venture on this journey!
