It's here, it's here, it's here!!

I am going to join over 10,000 hopefuls at the American Idol auditions tomorrow, and I'm so excited.

I've decided to wear a purple cowl neck shirt with short sleeves and a green and brown underbust vest that my Mom made for me a couple of years ago. With that, I'll be wearing a pair of grey jeans and some heels. I haven't yet decided which shoes I want to perform in, but I think I'm leaning more towards the shorter heel in order to feel the most comfortable while singing. I don't want to throw my center of gravity off!

The song I've picked to start my audition off with is "Ain't No Way" by Aretha Franklin. Love, love, love this song.  And yes, I do realize that I'm a cracker. haha I just figured I'd want to sing something that made me happy.

In the odd event that one of the producers asks me for an additional song, I'll have 3 extras "prepared." I say "prepared" because I'm honestly just pulling them out of my repertoire. I've known them for years, and, like "Ain't No Way," I love singing them.
  1. "Fever" by Eddie Cooley / Otis Blackwell
  2. "I Fall to Pieces" by Patsy Cline - I'm thinking this is probably a better idea than "Love Story."
  3. "Water Lily" by S. Rachmaninoff - Can't sing in a competition without having an opera piece up and running! hehe
Wish me luck, guys!

You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:

Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…
