It isn’t fair…

I hate singing shows like the Idol, The Voice, AMGT, and the X Factor. You know the shows where kids get to audition and sing their hearts out for a shot at stardom. I can’t stand those programs…

They Make Me So Jealous!

I was a singer as a kid and sang professionally with the Memphis Boys Choir till I lost my voice. Yes, I sang soprano till I was almost sixteen and realized it wasn’t cool to sing like a girl. At least back then it wasn’t. A kid could get beat up for singing like that…

I loved music and I had a strong voice. Not like the one I have now that sounds like I shoved gravel down my throat and it is rattling every time I talk. I was actually a decent singer and was in a few plays as well. I don’t know if I would have auditioned for one of those shows if they were around when I was a child… but it isn’t fair that I didn’t get the chance!

I am sure someone older than me is going to use some older example about how great I must have had it as a child because they were kicking rocks for fun down the street and running from tigers in a forest.

Boohoo… this is my pity post. Yours is down the hall.

  1. You still have time. Go on the voice!!!!
    I’m still slightly disappointed in no commentary on Bachelor in Paradise. I felt for sure you’d be forced to watch it and give some good jabs

    My girl can sing very well. She just can’t be bothered.
    As for me I might do it one day. Go sing in a choir that doesn’t need you to audition πŸ˜‚ fun thing to do.

  3. When I watch these shows, I figure it is a good thing in my case that I was too old to be a part of it. I wasn’t gifted with much of a voice, but I don’t think I could have resisted trying out for one of those shows. My parents were spared the agony of supporting an impossible dream. If only they had been spared my 80’s pursuit of massive big hair.
