It’s my birthday and I’m freaking out about this callback I have tomorrow. My gratefulness I had upon getting the callback is all but gone and I want a goddamn part. I didn’t know they were going to give me a song to learn so I was working on Sally Simpson’s parts and it was going fairly well. But anyway now it was “recommended” to learn Eyesight to the Blind or Go to the Mirror Boy. I know I asked for a small part with singing but my ego / inner critic are like but I don’t want to be the doctor or the hawker I want to be Sally Simpson. But I guess that was asking a lot. But I have a youthful glow about me – don’t I? I could play that part.
Phew! I just heard from my vocal coach she said to to stick to my guns and sing the Sally Simpson stuff I had been working on. She told me not to apologize and that it is my audition. OK I feel better now. I mean if I had more time to learn those other songs aka time to meet with my vocal coach than I would sing those but it’s overwhelming to have to learn them in such a short amount of time. And it’s my birthday I shouldn’t have to do anything overwhelming. Thank you Val!
