Ever since I can remember I have been singing. I grew up in a family that were musicians and singers, so I guess I was destined to be involved in music.  My father plays a variety of instruments, the piano, guitar, and sings in a band.  My mother started singing when she was two.  I remember my grandmother telling me the story of how she was preparing her three daughters for bed.  My mother was two years old at the time. She had tuck them in when she heard singing.  She thought my grandfather had left the radio on.  She went to turn the radio off and discover it was my mother singing.  My grandmother told us she knew then that God had chosen her to bring joy to people through her singing.  My mother has since sung before mass crowds and have brought wonderful responses from her singing.  After hearing that story, I knew I had inherited the music bug.  Looking back at old home videos and pictures, it was obvious music would be a big part of my life. I remember a couple pictures where I was holding a mic singing and another one where I was crying because my dad would not let me play the keyboard.  My dad is a big supporter of me too. He makes beats and he writes a lot song for me. The songs he writes are really good. He wants to get me in the studio but I’m the hold up. I’ve never been in the studio and it scares me.

A memorable moment for me was when my family realized I could sing.  I was nine years old.  I would always record myself singing on the phone.  It was a white flip phone.  I would always sing to myself in my room or when no one was around.  I was very shy and at nine, I was trying to fit in with my peers and with my family achievements.  I didn’t really want anyone to know I enjoyed singing. What would everyone think? Would they compare me to other members in my family who choose to excel academically, or would they think I wasn't good enough.  All of these fears caused me to hide the one thing that I really enjoyed.  But a freak incident and my forgetfulness would cause my love of music to be exposed.  As usual I was recording myself singing in the bathroom of my aunt's house when I left my phone. My brother went in to retrieve something he had left and saw the phone.  Of course, his curiosity got the best of him and he began to looked through it. He came across my recording.  He showed it to my family and that’s when they realized I could sing. The song was Rudolph the Red nosed reindeer.  They thought at first it was my mom singing.  My mom told them it wasn’t her.  They were surprised to discover it was shy little Asia.

Although my family was very encouraging, I continue to have fears.  The thought of singing in front of my family or an audience scared me.  In my family at Christmas we participate in family singing gatherings.  For example, we would all gather in the family room and sing Christmas carols or a R&B Christmas song.  I always stood in the back.

In my family, you always sang in the church choir, even if you could not sing.  They would say “you are singing for the Lord, just make a joyful noise.”  My opportunity came when I was eleven years old. Singing at my grandparent’s church gave me the confidence to sing in front of an audience. It wasn’t a lot of people because my grandfather had just started the church. It was about eight members.  It was something that I wanted to do.  I open my mouth and this unique voice came out. I knew God had blessed me with something special to be used to make people happy.  I was beginning to enjoy performing but I also enjoyed writing lyrics.  Writing music was a new experience for me.  My song writing started when I was twelve years old. I was very passionate about my song writing.  My first album was entitled "Famous".  The title of the album was also the name of one of the songs on the album. I have search many times for those songs but was not able to find them.  I haven't written anything lately but my mother wrote a song that her and I sing together.  One song that I wrote called “Eternity” was my favorite and in my opinion one of my best work.  According to my family it was terrific.  Enclosed at the end you will found the words to "Eternity."

I'm not sure why most of my songs were about love.  I was only twelve and didn’t really know about love or even have a boyfriend.  I guess because Love is universal it was easy to write about.  My greatest regret is that I didn't safeguard my songs better.  

In middle school I was in choir and the concert choir in seventh and eighth grade.  Eighth grade was my year for singing.  Although, it did not start that way.  I audition for several solo parts only not to be chosen.  After joining the concert choir, my music teacher started choosing me for solos. It is like one break can open the door for many fascinating things.  I then joined the talent show. This was a big deal for me, I got to show everyone my talent and also sing a song that I liked. The song that I chose to sing was “Chasing Pavements” by Adele. It was a song that my cousin helped me pick. This would be my first time actually performing on a stage by myself. I’ve sung on stage for choir but I was with other people. This time I would actually be singing on stage by myself, all attention on me.  The days approaching the talent show, were very nerve-racking for me.  I was so nervous and excited at the same time. It was a bittersweet moment for me. I was finally coming out of my shell my eighth grade year. It was a big thing for me. The day of the talent show was a great day. My family was there to support me. My mom was my biggest supporter when it came to singing and she still is. When I was announced to come on stage everyone was screaming my name and it felt good. After I finished, I felt very accomplished and more confident than ever. Toward the end of the year, the high school was holding special auditions for an advance concert choir. I wanted to do it but once again fear stop me from auditioning.  I ended up being in Intermediate choir, it was the worst. I was in the class with people who just joined the class because they needed the credit. I actually loved singing and took it very seriously. I regretted not auditioning for concert choir. The lesson learned; you are not always going to be around people that appreciate what you have a passion for.  You cannot let other people dictate how you feel about your talent.  Although they were there for the credit, I could not let their lack of enthusiasm destroy my passion for singing.  A passion that started with a family that loved singing. The benefit about being in intermediate choir was getting most of the solos. No one had the passion or the drive to audition, therefore, I was able to perform the majority of the solos. I joined intermediate choir the second semester also. My teacher announced that there would be concert choir auditions. I was excited and ready to do it.  This time I auditioned and it didn’t go as well as I thought it would.  The next week he posted the names of the people who made the choir, my name wasn’t there.  I cried. I called my mom. She could hear the disappointment in my voice.  I told her what happen.  She encourages me not to give up.  She reminded me that people sometime fail but nothing beats a failure but another try. The following year was another year of being in intermediate choir with people who didn’t really want to be there.  My mother's word echoed back to me, nothing beat a failure but another try. It was time for concert choir auditions again. I tried out and made it. My choir teacher told me that my voice had matured. It was a happy day for my mother and I.  She was happy to hear how my voice had matured but also how I myself had become stronger. I did not give up on myself or my dream to sing.  My confidence grew from that experience.  I was no longer afraid to face the possibility of not being chosen for a particular solo. This experience showed me that it is not about how people see you, but how do you see yourself.  I finally was able to be in a choir that loved singing and took it seriously. I stayed in concert choir for the last two years of high school.

After high school, I went to college.  College was a new adventure.  But even in college, I searched for ways to use my voice.  It surprised me that the choir at my college was so small.  I joined the choir.  It was nice but it was not a very popular group.  Many people didn't know we had a choir.  Unlike high school where the choir is a strong asset of the school, college focus mostly on the athletic groups.  I’m not athletic so it wasn’t really much that I could do but sing. 

My first year of college, I was involved in talent shows, singing at various games, and special events at the school.  At each occasion, people would comment on how they were surprise how well I sing.  It was really nice getting my voice heard.As always, my family was there to support me.  It was rewarding to look out and see them there especially during my disappointments.  I remember a talent show performance at college that really upset me.  Everyone that heard the performance was shocked that I did not place in the contest.My lesson learned in that situation, my enjoyment is about singing and the ability to make people feel good, using that talent.

Today I am in my second year of college.  I tried taking a music course that caused me much difficulty.  The class required me to read notes.  I have always learned by listening.  I can hear a song and immediately know the pitch and the harmony.  Whether someone is on key or not.  So, to read notes prove to be a challenge.  Many of the students in the class were music majors.  Music is not my major.  I felt lost.My instructor encouraged me to continue in the class, but as the class progress and things were getting harder, I made the decision to drop the class.I continued in choir.  Singing is my passion and to give it up would be like giving up part of myself.There is something about hearing the melody, the harmony and the tone of a song that is exciting.  Therefore, I could not let the disappointment of Music theory class to destroy the love I have for singing.  I am convinced that I will eventually go back to Music theory and learn those notes. 

My biggest accomplishment occurred when my choir teacher asked me to sing the national anthem at a football game. This was my first time ever doing something this big. I was really excited and nervous. I would be singing in front of many people.  Many people would be critiquing my voice not just one teacher in a classroom.  The idea of performing at a major school event gave me joy and fear.  My family, friends and instructors encouraged me to just be myself.  Leading up to the day of the game, I rehearsed twice a day.  I drank tea with lemons to preserve my voice.  The day arrived.  Standing on that field, hearing the introduction, hearing my name called was one of the most exhilarating feelings.I did not want to disappoint anyone, especially not my family.  All the Christmas sing along, all the family holiday gatherings music performance, singing in the choir, disappointments of not being chosen to sing the lead in the concert choir, had prepared me for this moment.  I was just hoping that I did well.  After singing, which seem to have gone by very quickly, was total applause. Many people came to me and complimented me on my singing.  I said to myself, did I really do good?  I was very proud of myself. After that performance, I also did a couple open mics, two talent shows and was asked to sing at another event. This year was a big year for me with singing.  That football event seems to open doors for me.  I was asked to sing at one event after another.  One event I was asked to perform was a funeral for one of our college student that had battle cancer.  I didn’t know if I would be able to perform.  Singing at funerals was something I had never done.  Everything went well.  My singing has allowed me to meet various people, some I would otherwise not have met.  

What is my dream about singing? I hope one day to write and record my music. As far back as I can remember, this has been my dream.  It feels good getting recognition for my singing.  But it feels even better knowing you are living your passion.  You are doing something that you love and every day you wake thinking to yourself, I can’t wait for the opportunity to sing. Since I can remember my dream has been to be a famous singer. Even now in life it is still my dream. I gave up on my dream for a while because I was getting discouraged and didn’t think I could do it. I still get discouraged sometimes but the passion and drive came back this year because of all of the things I was involved in. Singing at these events made me remember why I wanted to be a singer in the first place. I love being on stage and entertaining people. It is what I love to do. A lot of people might like to sing but they’re not as passionate about it. A lot of my family members can sing or play music but I can tell they sometimes just do it because they can do it. I actually wouldn’t mind having a career of being a singing. I am in college studying education because that is something I love and I want to work with kids. My ultimate dream job is being a singing. I know it doesn’t always work out and the music industry is hard to get in.  Having a college education can help me and open a lot of doors for me. And also is a backup plan if the singing career doesn’t work out the best. I really want to expand my singing career. I want to sing at outside events other than school or church. I want to get my name and voice out there more than it is. People back home know I can sing and now people at Wesley. I want other people around the world to voice. I do have a Youtube account that I put myself singing on but I don’t have that many subscribers, so my videos don’t really get a lot of view. The most view one of my videos got was around six hundred. It was a video that I made with a friend last year. It was my first time collaborating with another person. The video was originally his but I put in on my page and it got a lot of love and views. I was so happy and excited when I found out that my video got that many view. It was a big deal for me because my videos have never got that many views. The most view my video got was around one hundred views.

I always look at the singer and how successful they are. It really makes me want to do it even more. I look up to a lot of singers. Beyoncé, Adele, Rihanna the list goes on. I see the impact their music has on other people and I want my music to impact people like theirs. I see how great of a performer that they are. They interact with the crowd and get them engaged in what they are doing. I like music that makes you have a connection with the singer and makes you feel good. Most singer’s write songs that we can relate too. That’s the best kind of music.

I’ve been trying to go on the voice since I can remember. The voice is a singing competition show. I really like how the show is run and I think it’s fair. I always sign up every year to go to the audition but I can never get anyone to take me to New York. That’s the closest place to where I live. All of the other places are too far. I don’t really know how to get around New York or drive there so I need someone that knows their way around especially driving to go with me. My family are always busy the week I want to go. I’m not going to give up on my dream of going on the voice. That could really open a lot of doors for me because I would be on television singing. Even if I didn’t win the competition I would still get recognized and someone might want to sign me from just being on television. I know a lot of singer that has happened too that went on American Idol, The Voice and other singing competition shows. It has opened a lot of doors for them. I will never give up on my dream. I know there will be a lot of road blocks along the way but I will never give up on my biggest dream since I was young. I know at times it might seem like things aren’t working out or it’s that thing in the back of my mind telling me not to go for it because of my fear of rejection, but this is something that I want to pursue and it’s going to take time. This is not something that will happen overnight and I didn’t really expect it to. I will keep working on being a better sing and getting in the studio to get my music out there. This is a dream I will never give up on.

I never really thought about what kind of music I would do. I like all kinds of music. I thought mostly about doing R&B/ Pop. A mixture of both because I know that pop music would be played on the radio more often than any other music and I love R&B. I feel that the music I write will be able to relate to people. I write about real life situations and a lot of people can relate to the real songs. I would never write something that I didn’t feel or experience. A lot of listeners and fans will like that fact that you were open with them and let them in to your life story. Nobody wants to listen to someone who’s being fake they like realness. I know I do when I listen to music I most likely listen to the words The music is a big part of why people would listen to a song but I actually listen to the lyrics. That is what I mostly look for in a song, it’s probably because I write songs myself. Some people don’t really know much about music, I can get very passionate about music. I know when something sounds good or if it doesn’t sound too good. I have a different ear for music than many other people. I feel that if I record my music and get it out there I will get noticed by other people besides at school and back home. It’s a lot of singers that got recognized that way. Also putting my videos on YouTube can help too. A lot of singer have got notice from YouTube. Justin Bieber is one of the biggest YouTube stars and that’s how he got noticed and signed. Social media really can help get a singing career going. Facebook is another place that people can get recognized. I think Facebook is a better avenue to getting noticed, because if your video goes viral it’s going to have millions of views.

I feel like singing is what I was destined to do. I will never give up on this dream because it is something I have been dreaming about for a long time. Sometimes I might want to just forget about it but when you’re meant to do something and it’s in your heart it will never leave and I feel like that’s how it is when it comes to singing. It is what I love to do and would want to have a career in. When you have a dream that you love you will never give up on it.Ever since I can remember I have been singing. I grew up in a family that were musicians and singers, so I guess I was destined to be involved in music.  My father plays a variety of instruments, the piano, guitar, and sings in a band.  My mother started singing when she was two.  I remember my grandmother telling me the story of how she was preparing her three daughters for bed.  My mother was two years old at the time.

My brother went in to retrieve something he had left and saw the phone.  Of course, his curiosity got the best of him and he began to looked through it.

I know a lot of singer that has happened too that went on American Idol, The Voice and other singing competition shows. It has opened a lot of doors for them. I will never give up on my dream. I know there will be a lot of road blocks along the way but I will never give up on my biggest dream since I was young. I know at times it might seem like things aren’t working out or it’s that thing in the back of my mind telling me not to go for it because of my fear of rejection, but this is something that I want to pursue and it’s going to take time. This is not something that will happen overnight and I didn’t really expect it to. I will keep working on being a better sing and getting in the studio to get my music out there. This is a dream I will never give up on.

I never really thought about what kind of music I would do. I like all kinds of music. I thought mostly about doing R&B/ Pop. A mixture of both because I know that pop music would be played on the radio more often than any other music and I love R&B. I feel that the music I write will be able to relate to people. I write about real life situations and a lot of people can relate to the real songs. I would never write something that I didn’t feel or experience. A lot of listeners and fans will like that fact that you were open with them and let them in to your life story. Nobody wants to listen to someone who’s being fake they like realness. I know I do when I listen to music I most likely listen to the words The music is a big part of why people would listen to a song but I actually listen to the lyrics. That is what I mostly look for in a song, it’s probably because I write songs myself. Some people don’t really know much about music, I can get very passionate about music. I know when something sounds good or if it doesn’t sound too good. I have a different ear for music than many other people. I feel that if I record my music and get it out there I will get noticed by other people besides at school and back home. It’s a lot of singers that got recognized that way. Also putting my videos on YouTube can help too. A lot of singer have got notice from YouTube. Justin Bieber is one of the biggest YouTube stars and that’s how he got noticed and signed. Social media really can help get a singing career going. Facebook is another place that people can get recognized. I think Facebook is a better avenue to getting noticed, because if your video goes viral it’s going to have millions of views.

I feel like singing is what I was destined to do. I will never give up on this dream because it is something I have been dreaming about for a long time. Sometimes I might want to just forget about it but when you’re meant to do something and it’s in your heart it will never leave and I feel like that’s how it is when it comes to singing. It is what I love to do and would want to have a career in. When you have a dream that you love you will never give up on it.
