  7. Hello, Hello, Hello !

    My Name is Keston Steele I am 20 years old from Charlotte Nc. I have been singing since a was a youngin in the church and branched off to a little musical theatre in highschool. I am inlove with the idea of this up and coming series and i just knew this was not one, i just wanted to talk about and binge watch. I knew this was one I needed to either say i had the opportunity to audition or contribute My God given talent to this show. Being apart of this for me would not just be some "big break". For me this show could inspire and change lives through the art. Growing up in and arts school we were always taught how important and how much of an impact the Arts haS on Everyone. And if I could contribute to share a story through my talents , I coudnt ask for more.

  8. I would like to be on the show because I have been singing since forever.Inow I have a great voice, people have tell me all the time but it meant so much when I sang to be on Disney and made it so if they think I can sing then why not try out for your show.

  20. Hey there!

    I'm 33, female, well presented and I've been singing unprofessionally since able (mostly in the shower or to the boyfriend). I'm inspired by artists like Sia, Stevie Wonder, Lauren Hill and Janet Jackson. When I sing, every atom in my being is enlivened and triggers a happiness I simply can't contain. In Sister Act, Lauren Hill said something along the lines of 'if you wake up in the morning and you can't think of anything else but singing, that's what you were meant to do'. I'm a little late in the game, but I'm trying to follow my dreams. I'd be keen to be apart of this project.
