I went to an open mike tonight and sang, it was so therapeutic, there is an old standard I love called bewitched, it makes me remember the happiest times in my life, wow they were amazing. Oh well, it was really nice, I wonder how many of my new friends are singers, dancers, etc. I remember reading that kathleen battle never found her voice until she was 26, never trained. That is amazing, well I must sleep, but I hope you all have beautiful dreams.

I've already told you this, but I love your voice and I wish I could've heard you sing tonight. Is that song a favorite of your's?

Singing is a form of therapy, and if it's not it should be. My mom always told me that I have a really strong voice but I just don't use it right when I sing. and when I always choose a song to sing at kareoke it's something rediculous like copa cabana which you can't really sing to.

oh well, Much Love.

I sing.. very differently from your song but its the feeling of expression thats important. You should post these nights so people can come cheer you on but I also know sometimes the annon performance is nice, just the mysterious man in black at the mic and no one knows you and you can just open up to strangers you may never see again (or maybe you will if they liked what you did). Glad you had a wonderful time :)

That's such an interesting song...I wish I could've heard you sing it; you have the best voice. Singing is brilliant therapy...even I think so, and my voice isn't strong at all. Well, not when it comes to singing for the most part. My range is kind of pitiful. But I adore it all the same.

I hope you are doing well! I really think (from watching Project Runway) that you are an interesting and talented person. You were my pick to go far, so I was very disappointed when you were kicked off. I hope to meet you one day!

Bewitched, bothered and bewildered, just about sums up how the cat feels when I sing...

I want to hear your singing voice!! You talking ones so cool i bet ur singing one is. I've been a singer my whole life. I'm in select chorus at school. I've never gone to an open mic night though. I live in the middle of nowhere.

I was entirely disappointed and crushed when they cut you from project runway. What a wrong, wrong decision. I was so excited to see the wonderful things you would create.
Today I "googled" you in a quest to know more, and what a pleasant surprise to find that you have so many projects!
I, too, am a singer. This is my passion. In my tiny town, we have an open mic each first thursday of the month. I'm always there, playing the piano and singing my heart out. It's such a lovely time.
Fashion used to be a huge passion of mine. I wanted to become a model. Sad to say, I didn't grow any taller than 5'5", which thoroughly crushed those dreams. haha.
But life goes on, and you are so inspiring to me. Someday, when I move to New York, I will visit you and beg you to make me something beautiful to wear to the music awards.
Keep smiling.

I think I've been cursed! I love singing, it's my biggest passion in life... and yet, I've been singing all my life and my voice isn't any good.... so I know I'll never get anywhere when it comes to music, at least vocally. It's quite depressing.

I've sung before in front of crowds, and although I think I have a great voice, I do believe they'd beg to differ, aahahahah.

I read on your myspace that you're into Brazilian Girls. That's awesome. What a great band.. I love Homme. You should listen to Sondre Lerche, you'd probably like his music.

Open mic nights... *is entranced* Where was it? I am shy about singing anywhere outside of the shower, because I am rejected for pretty much every vocal endeavor I try out for since I have no training. Nevertheless everyone I sing in front of says I have a beautiful voice and should do something with it. Mixed messages city! *laughs* But the concept of an open mic night sounds nice, even if I've only ever heard the term applied to poetry events and such.

I would love to hear your singing voice as well, you have such a unique, lovely speaking voice. I love singing, but always privately. I think sometimes I have a decent singing voice, but am too shy to sing in front of people. Ah well, Music is a therapy to me, my life (ie family) isn't so great, and I often retreat to music as an escape. I very much respect people who have this gift and share with us!

Hope you had a blissful night!

Oh, I'd like to hear you sing! I'm pretty good at singing, but I get nervous singing in front of groups of people so people rarely get to hear me do it.

Love that song too.

thank you for not closing up or shutting down as your fanbase grows. i'm so happy to see that you are still out there, no matter the set back.

Good for you! I can only hope I will also find a therapeutic outlet in my life as well sometime soon. I cannot sing (whoooo) but I've been told I have a gift for writing (when I feel up to it that is). Anyway, its great to hear you found the power in your voice to soothe things. I'll bet it even lifted the spirits of others who heard you. :)

I love singing alone in my house. There's just something so sacred about it to me that there's this one part of me that no one will ever hear. Sure, I've sung in musical theatre and my drama teacher even made me sing a solo in front of the parents. But it's not the same voice, the same me that sings all alone.

I sing. Quite well. Not to sound conceited. Just honest. :) I'm fortunate enough to get paid for singing now. Your speaking voice is melodious and lovely, and I'll wager your singing voice is on par as well.

Is that true about Kathleen Battle? I adore her voice. I still recall the first time I heard her sing. It was a Vienna New Year's Day concert in the 1980's, and I was driving around the hills of Tennessee looking at bluebirds as I listened to her glorious voice. I went home and wrote her a little waltz called the "Bluebird Waltz," and the dear gal was kind enough to send me a letter thanking me for it. I still think her voice was the most pure perfection I ever heard.
