LOL...just saw your comments. If I could I would...just like everyone else I'm hustling everyday, doing auditions and constantly looking for the perfect agent for me. Pray for my success and I'll pray for yours. Be blessed my sister.
Ambition...hmmn....reaching for the stars would be too cliche right...so I'll just hint on the hills of Hollywood and keep dreaming of a Shrek like cum Avatar role to float my way via heavens altar....I guess I'll keep dreaming, praying and stretching those vocal chords till the opportunity arises....all to do right now is to prepare and prepare and prepare.....
pssst... I think 6 months must be some kind of new record or something... I could be mistaken but do I believe I hear Mr Guinness calling ...:::::: ;0)
