Since I was two years old, singing along to my mom's CD's in the car, I have loved music and have wished to perform. So, I'm taking my own advice from my last post, though I am not able to audition for what I originally planned, I have found another audition, and wanted to know what you think of my voice. I would love to have as many comments on this as possible, and please be honest. I love constructive criticism. Thank you.
I've recorded myself singing a snippet of "Lettin Go!" by Janelle Monae, so please tell me what you think:

(By the way, she is an amazing poet. Check out some of her works)
2. IF YOU DON'T TRY YOU'LL NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU CAN ACHIEVE. My very best friend has been telling me this a lot lately, because she knows that I love music. Ever since I was little I've been singing into hairbrushes, on top of my bed or toybox, to an audience of stuffed animals or just my mirror. As of late, she's been convincing me to try out for American Idol. Now, I never watch this show, but I know that it consists of trying out in front of a panel of judges, and that terrifies me; however, auditions are this month. Wish me luck. So readers, if there is anything in your life right now that can have a positive outcome and you are scared to try, do it! You never know what will happen. (And I will tell you if I can get transportation to the auditions and what happens if I do)
3. BEING YOURSELF NO MATTER WHAT WILL BRING GREAT THINGS. No matter what you do or what your passion is, being yourself truly opens people's eyes. You stand out and give a lasting impression. If you need an example, look up Of Montreal, Janelle Monae, and other artists. Stick to what is you, readers, and I promise that you will be happy with the results.

Besides having amazing style, Monae has toured with Erykah Badu, released two top selling albums, and performed at quite a few award shows. Here are a few links to some of her performances and videos:
