Undiscovered Talent

Well, I participated in the first round of a local artist developement program called Undiscovered Talent. It's set up is much like American Idol, only it is local to my city. I made it through the audition rounds to the first show. It was so much fun. I sang Let It Rain at my first show and got some great feedback from the judges. I have now made it through to round 3 - June 10, 2011......wish me luck.

Sad day in Slave Lake

So, I live in a city in northern Alberta, Canada. North of where I live is a small community called Slave Lake. This past weekend this community was ravaged by a fire that literally levelled many parts of the town. The entire town was evacuated along with many other surrounding communities. Many people are left without homes to go back to. The devastation is horrific. Some amazing Edmonton musicians are putting on a benefit concert May 23 to help raise funds to support the thousands of families affected by this disaster. I am honored to have been invited to sing at this fundraiser. I am very proud to say I am from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The outpouring of support for our Northern Neighbors is simply awe-inspiring.

Busy Month

I just finished my audition for the Northern Star Talent Search and made it through to the semi-finals. Between Undiscovered Talent and Northern Star it is going to be a busy couple of months. Having lots of fun though and looking forward to the future. :)
