spreadin the music

in every way possible. here's a tutorial for "I Just Want You"



i got bored last night (super bowl sunday) cuz i wasnt watching the super bowl so there's the end result. oh and i also made a chord sheet for Showstopper cuz Alyssa Bernal (hchsknights08) requested it among many others.

anyway, if you're wondering if i made Singer's Showcase or not.. i didn't =/ but its all good.. i did my best and i guess that's not what they wanted this year. i sang "Moving Too Fast" from the Last Five Years, a musical by Jason Robert Brown. performing on that stage of the Berklee Performance Center was like a dream come true. although it was only callbacks, i performed like it was the real thing. so i'm not gonna complain about not makin it, cuz i know i did what i could and i performed well =)

now tonight is Singer's Night callbacks... i NEED to make this show.. gahhh =[ i'm trying out with "Little Piece of Home"... i'll let you all know what happens.

this weekend was cool, i hung out with my homies Sid, Mik, Alex, and Jordan and i fell asleep at the dorms. dorm life is pretty cool, but i can see how someone can get tired of it. saturday i saw Notorious and it was SO DOPE! haha im not even kidding. very inspiring and i felt very informed at the end of the movie. so many things i didnt know about Biggie's life its crazy. hung out with my friend Angel from Northeastern, (FallenxAngel i think from blogtv!) haha she's super dope and so chill. church on Sunday all day, and today i got class at 4. callbacks proceed immediately after class. haha catch ya'll laterr...

i apologize for being almost absent for a week on this blogspot. blogtv was fun last night!

One day you should make a complete version of I Just Want You on the piano as a ballad. <3 I love playing the song on piano! ... but I don't want to put it up on YouTube 'cause you're way too beast and I'm waiting for when you do!

Rofl Aj. I don't think you need cable. All you need is access to any NBC channel, but I guess it's too late for that :3

Good tutorial by the way. :D

hey aj!

congrats on making it to callbacks for singer's showcase. i'm proud of you-- that you gave it your all and don't regret doing so. [: trust me when i say, THEY'RE the ones who are missing out. do your best on singer's night, and i'm sure you'll make it. if not, you still have millions of people that love you and your music.

you should have a btv broadcast every thursday afternoon/night... just sayin' hahaha. :p

lots of love & support all the way from SD!

stephanieee said...

heeey! so i found out about your music/this page from hearing alyssa bernal do a cover of your song! you're mega talented and just wanted to let you know, although i'm sure you're told it a ton.

but anyway, i go to BU, a neighbor to berklee! i read part of a blog you posted about the guy riding the unicycle, HAHA! i've definitely seen him before- i'm glad he's making his rounds. be on the look out for the comm ave (commonwealth ave) runner- he's famooous, haha, google him- you may've seen him already!

hope to hear about some upcoming shows, perhaps, in bostoniaaaaaa :D

best,
steph

I'm happy that you still are so optimistic even though you didn't make that Singer's Showcase thing :) Just know that there are still PLENTY of people who love and adore you and your music, including me. If you look at my iTunes, out of the hundreds of artists I have on there, you're my most played :D Haha yay I was at your blogTV that night! I don't think I made it into your shoutout song though, cause there were so many people typing up there name in there! You're surely going to go blind from all the colors ahaha.

I would absolutely love it if you did an Earth, Wind, & Fire song in your Classics series. Preferably "After the Love Has Gone" or "September" :]
