Music Is My Passion

I know that there is alot of people out there who want to be singers for so many reasons. But mines is... I just love to sing. I joined a choir when I was 11 yrs old called Los Cumbancheros. It was both percussion and singers. I sucked at that time. My first performance was my boyfriends 8Th grade graduation and I had to sing the titanic song. Man, I did so bad (lol) my guidance counselor said, "you sounded like s***. Your never going on stage again." It was devastating and I stopped singing in front of people completely. But I never stopped going home and singing. I just loved it. There were so many things that I have given up on. I almost didn't make it through high school. Not because I wasn't smart. I was an honor student all the way till 11Th grade. Its just that for some reason I never took an interest or care in anything except for singing. I just went home and sang. I can lose myself in it. I forget all my problems or I let out what I feel through it. I'm not in it for the money or the fame. I just love doing it. Ive finally found what I want to do for the rest of my life. Ive finally found where I need to be. :)

I spent many years with Los cumbancheros and truly enjoyed my time with them, I'm sad you didn't remain and continued your dream. But I'm glad you've found something you love and hopefully have made come true. Even as adults were able to continue to sing, because there's nothing to stop us from doing so :)
