I'm scared...

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

In about two weeks I will make my NYC cabaret debut. I've been working toward this for about the past 7 years and I am grateful for this opportunity. Still, it is quite overwhelming. I haven't said much about it because I didn't want to put any more pressure on myself than there already was. I've been doing pretty well up until this week. All the planning and the reality of what I'm doing hit me big time.

This is a dream I've had all my life - to sing in New York. It was also something I was told I would never accomplish because I wasn't good enough.

I have an amazing director and music director. People are flying from all over to come see the show and I'm feeling tons of pressure to get everything done, rehearse, exercise, lose weight to fit into this skirt and look as good as I can to see people I haven't seen for 25 years who don't know I look like what I do, not to mention, to sing the heck out of the show and be fabulously entertaining. Ugh. Just stressed out about all the goofy details that have to come together, the money it takes to pull something like this off (what most people don't realize is that most artists produce and market their own shows - one man band) and just all the things that need to fall into place before the moment you hit the stage. Trying to do what I can to keep myself centered....trying. Just had to get that all out....

I know it will all come together. I know it will go well. I can do this. I've worked really hard. I know I can ;-) So, if you happen to live in NYC or have friends who do and like music..let me know. I be happy to send ya an invite! :-)
