May 15, 2020 Challenge the Fear #5 

This song is "Lil Darling" by ZZ Ward.

I've got an Open Call Audition, next month, for The Voice. It is the first time I am auditioning for them. Up until now, I've only submitted myself.

I've chosen this song to audition with. Because it's the closest to the songs I write; includes Rap and Belt. : )

April 24, 2020 - Challenge the Fear #3 

April 24, 2020 Challenge the Fear #3 

The song is "Prepared" by Jill Scott. 

Please join me in busting through this wall of fear that has us "locked down." There is not a lot I can do to make Covid-19, non-existent. But, there are a ton of things I can do that will make my life; be more than about, being lockdown. 

I invite you. Share some fear you've walked through, this week ...be it big or small. And, we'll get through this together! 

Know somebody who could use this? ...share it!

April 10, 2020 - Elevator Pitch ...to be Released, soon!! 

Hey y'all,

I did this because I was just so damn frustrated with the pandemic. And all of my plans, to finish and release this song, getting cancelled! I felt like I had to do something!?!

This post has turned into a "Fear Challenge." Every Friday at 4pm, I will sing a song on Facebook Live. And, drop a sentence or two before hand, about my misgivings. That way, besides hearing me sing. You'll get to know me a little better. Enjoy.

https://business.facebook.com/watch/live/?v=2259978707644843&ref=watch_permalink  

Remember! Every Friday afternoon, at 4p.

Kind regards,

Jenepher White

 

July 2019 - No Voice, No Matter: ) 

July 13 came and went with no call from The Voice. Not gonna lie I was a little disappointed. But, life has kept me so busy that I haven't had the time (to dwell). In the past few weeks, my toy poodle, Maddie, passed after 16 years. Maddie RIP. I love you, forever. Then, I sliced up my hand with an electric sander while I was attempting  to sand the back deck. And, of course, music... music... music..: )

BTW - At a friends nudging, I submitted myself for AGT. I had never done that before. Because, I want to be taken seriously as an artist. I want a career in the music industry. And I assumed that AGT would not be the place for me. But, she talked me into it. So, I could hear anytime between now and next spring ...or not at all ...gawd, I hate the audition process.

See you next time!

June 2019 - The Voice - Scheduled Auditions 

June 2019 - The Voice - Scheduled Auditions

Now they've got this thing where you send them a submission video. Then, choose you for a scheduled audition at the open call city you choose.

I submitted myself maybe 3 weeks ago. I haven't heard, yet.

The hardest thing about all of this is the self-doubt. You know? I look for, and find, the reasons they haven't called; which is bullshit. I know I'm a good singer. I know I touch people when I sing. I know my songs are good and they are authentic.

I allow self-doubt to hang out in my mind, too long. All in the name of "wanting to become better." what a bunch of crap. I am as good as I need to be for The Voice or Songland ...or The Playlist (hasn't come out yet.) I've got to catch those thoughts, as soon as they happen, and say ...bye bye.: )

February 2019 - The Voice - IG Submission 

February 2019 - The Voice - IG Submission

They got this new thing. Where you sign up for an Open Call Audition in one of the cities that are available. For me, that was San Fransisco. Then, you post a blacked out video of an audition song, on Instagram. I sang a "Kiss From A Rose." If you want to see it, the video's on my IG profile. https://www.instagram.com/jenepherwhite/ 

I figured I would post the audition. Then if I wasn't chosen by 2 days before the Live Auditions. I would cancel my airline flight (minus $150), the car, the hotel, and the spot in the live Auditions. That way I would only be out $150.

I did not get chosen ...I'm not gonna lie. I was pretty disappointed that I didn't get chosen. you'd think I'd be used to it by now.

 

But, I'll be releasing my new single, "Out" in a few months. So, there's that to look forward

 

April 9, 2019 - Up To Date! 

April 9, 2019 - Up To Date!

In 2013,there was the revitalization of my soul ...I sang for the first time as a solo artist in over 20 years. The time away from music was due to my brain hemorrhaging ...and a lot of fear of performing (The basic history is in my Bio.: ) 

When I sang again, my whole world opened up to me. Up until that point, I was sure I would never perform again. I had many reasons, starting with taking care of myself. Making sure I had a consistent job and that it provided health insurance. As I saw it, it was an either or proposition. Either sing ...or take care of myself. 

Ok ...there was the way I looked, also. After the BH I was droopy on the right side, and I had no balance. Then, there were the subsequent hospitalizations. On top of all that, was the mountain of fear that I had to face, every time I dared to perform. 

But, there was a fairly new show out called "The Voice." I, of course, was a solid fan. I did not miss a show. For 2 years I would watch it and not even dream about me being on it. "The Voice" was for when I had a voice. 

When I sang again as a solo artist. And I felt the exchange between me and the audience ...and I remembered all the words!  I thought of The Voice, immediately. I started submitting myself. I stopped keeping track of how many times I've submitted myself. I mean, I have all the evidence. But, I just get sad if I think about it, too long. 

On the really good side, I had started writing songs, again. Not only that, my latest single, "Out". is soon to be released; on May 5, 2019. And I had a large part in arranging and producing it!! ...who I am becoming as an artist is crazy exciting!!!

Come join me on this "Road To ...What's next???" : D
