Life has been really crazy recently, hasn’t it? Personally, I’ve been keeping busy with my music. I submitted to the Hal Leonard vocal competition, a last-minute project that I had a ton of fun working on! My wonderful voice teacher Ms. M helped me prepare and was really flexible in setting up extra lessons. I submitted to two categories – Musical Theatre and Art Songs.
I recently received the results of the competition, and it turns out that in the Musical Theatre category I was a semifinalist, and in the art songs category I was a finalist! I was really excited about this. For the musical theatre category I had sung Reflection (from Mulan) and Born To Entertain (from Ruthless), and for the art songs I sang Ho! Mr. Piper and Oh, Shenendoah. Here are the recordings!
Musical Theatre Songs
Time is flying and the holiday season is upon us! What better way to welcome in the festivities than a holiday recital? I recently performed “Con Te Partiro”, or “Time to Say Goodbye”, at my studio’s winter concert. Thank you to my wonderful teacher Ms. Wor for preparing me! Here is a recording! Happy Holidays and have a fabulous New Year!!!
Happy Halloween – it’s time to eat all that leftover candy! I was put into the spooky mood by a Halloween Macabre Cabaret last weekend. I performed Danse Macabre by Saint-Saens and A Thousand Years from the Twilight Saga (a vampire movie series for those of you who have not seen it). Check out the recordings here!
After much time and effort, the Tower of Talent performance has finally flown by! It is an annual fundraiser for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and I have had the honor to be a part of it three years in a row, hopefully going on four! I sang “Smile” by Charlie Chaplin at the performance, and had recorded my own video/audio track. It was played on a mega screen behind me (I did not expect it to be so big… wow). I was so lucky to have had the support of my incredible piano teacher, Ms. Irina, without whom this project would not have been possible. I was also thrilled to have my dear friends Mme. Maryse, Amelie, and Odin there to cheer me on. Thank you to my family and friends, all of whom took the time to come see me perform!
Here is the recording – please let me know what you think!

This past Sunday I had the opportunity to perform Defying Gravity from Wicked, one of my favorite musicals. I saw it on Broadway and have been singing it in the shower ever since. 😊 Hope you enjoy!
Somehow, summer has rolled around and is rushing by so quickly! Just recently, I performed at my voice recital, ending one school year and just about starting the next. I performed two pieces – Shenandoah and Oh What a Beautiful Morning (from Oklahoma!). Check out the recording below!
I am so fortunate to have Ms. M as my teacher! She prepares me so well for all my performances, and I have learned so much from her.
It’s been a long weekend! My musical theater company and I performed 3 shows of the original musical Happily Ever After. Wow, this was such a fun musical – it is a satire on the traditional fairy tales. You favorite fairy tale characters are portrayed in a way you have probably never seen before. This show was so cleverly written – we got some good laughs. Check out some pictures:
