Ever Since I Was Little

music was a major part of my life.  My dad says I sang before I spoke.  He was / is my biggest influence.  He always had his guitar and a beautiful tenor voice.  When we would go to family parties, he would make me sing in front of everyone.  I was very embarrassed.  By the age of 8 I told him I didn't want to do that any more.  I joined my school chorus at age 9, and stayed in til I was 12.  My chorus teacher was also my next door neighbor, she never really asked me to sing solo, so I don't think she really knew what I was capable of doing or she did, and just didn't recognize me for it.  Anyway, I just thought I could sing, carry a tune.  I mostly sing in the car, at which time, my kids tell me to stop.  So, again nothing special about my voice.  Within the past month and a half, I have expressed my desire to sing to my boyfriend.  He has taken me out to a karaoke bar, a few times.  Every time I've sung, someone comes up to me, and tells me what a beautiful voice I have, if I've ever entered any competitions, etc.  We went to a different karaoke bar about 112 miles away just to see if I would get the same type of response.  I mean, my man, he tells me I can sing but he also tells me that I'm skinny, you know what I'm saying?  I just want to get a neutral party's input.  I had a gentleman tell me that I had natural talent, and he hasn't heard a voice with such pitch and clarity.  It made me happy.  He told me I should get a recording deal.  I still don't know how to move forward from here.
