Music is my LIFE. It's literally oxygen for me.
According to my family, I was singing before I started talking. In 1986, When I was 5 years old I had my First LIVE performance at a local fair singing Holly Dunn's "Daddy Hands". I was a spoiled child so I loved every minute of being in the limelight. From that point on I was singing anywhere I could...apparently when I asked what I wanted to eat for dinner I would always sing the answer to my parents.
In school, I was an Alto-Soprano. I would have rather had music classes than any others. In fact, my senior year was compiled of Women's Chorus, Concert Choir, Symphonic Choir & I was a member of my schools Show Choir.
As for playing an insturment, I started playing guitar when I was 12. As years went by I wanted to learn more insturments so I took a shot at the flute, clarinet, saxophone, & made a FAILED attempt to play trumpet(didn't work well since I had braces at the time!
Even today, you'll find me humming away at the most random times.
My Dream Roles for a Broadway Career would be:
Lucy Harris in Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hydehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sS4jsfb7zLM
Elphaba in Wicked!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tT-vnfzltFE
(I absolutely adore Coleen Sexton(who does the vocals on both of the link I provided).
