Day 1147: The results are in ….

I didn’t get a call back from my audition for “The Voice” today, but neither did lots of great singers.

I let my voice ring out with no sound of nervousness.

One highlight of the experience: when I was in the “holding area” with hundreds of other people, a young woman came up to me and said, “I really like your jacket and your energy.”

Here are  three photos for this bonus post of “The Year(s) of Living Non-Judgmentally.”


All the best to my readers and use your voice!

  6. I really like your jacket and your energy, too. What an amazing (and to me, terrifying) experience. I can hardly believe you have done all this today and I am still in bed.

  7. I was hoping for a photo! Beautiful!! Congratulations on your adventure🎶🎶🎶🎶💗💗💗💗

  8. Very well done. You look good, and at least you won’t have face the cut-throat stages

  9. I hope it was a positive experience and there is always “next time”. In the words of an old, Chinese proverb… Fall down seven times and get up eight. Now you will have more time to use your energy for other pursuits of happiness.

  10. you’ll always be
    a star, Ann!
    and there’s always
    voice machine messages 🙂

  11. Aw, I’m sorry you didn’t get that callback, Ann! Love the photo of you and your jacket, both with very good energy. ❤ ❤

  12. Well done, call back or not. Just signing up and going to the auditions was an experience you can look back on with pride.

  13. There’s always next time!

  14. Wow, I like your jacket too. What a bummer you didn’t get a red card, but you should have received one just for having the guts to go and audition. What a great adventure!!!! And we got to come along with you. Have a wonderful, stress-free day!!!!!

  15. Their loss!

  16. Still, very brave of you to try. Next time!

    Aw, shucks! They should have called you back just because you look so great 🙂

  18. I’m sure they have no idea what they just let slip away.. Rock on!
    Love your whole look too!

  26. Even though you didn’t make it to the next round it was still a huge accomplishment. Congrats!

  27. Way to go, Anne. It would have been a tragedy to always wonder “What if?” without knowing the answer. For the rest of your life you’ll know that you had the courage to go for it. That’s a great gift you gave to yourself.

  28. Congratulations!! Love the jacket!!! love your hair!!! Love your energy!!!


    Oscar, the results are in, yay! Oscar, are you there!

  30. So sorry you didn’t get through! I know the feeling – these days there seems to be far too much competition in every creative arena.

    • There was no getting through the competition for that last day of auditioning for the fall season of “The Voice,” Annabelle, except for one person out of hundreds (as far as I could see). But that experience is going to let me get through to more confidence in performing elsewhere, I know.
