Oh you know...
Just hanging out with some Broadway Stars in NYC! 💁🏾‍♀️♥️🎭🍎
I was totally excited to meet these 2 phenoms! @thealexnewell and @thenormlewis were both in the sensational Musical ONCE ON THIS ISLAND (@onceislandbway) Alex was on the hit show Glee and Norm was also the beautiful Pharisee in NBC’s live production of Jesus Christ Superstar (yup, beautiful! Hahaha)! In addition to being Broadway Royalty. Ha! It was great to meet these guys and to chat with Norm a bit about his journey! He is from right down the street in, Eatonville, Fl and he said that Disney never hired him. What??? Well Mickey, ya missed out! Ha! So funny how the rejections in our journeys play out right? That’s why we have to trust them, even when they don’t make sense!!! God always sees and knows the BIGGER PICTURE! 🙌♥️🎭🍎🙌

Sooooo...
I did a thing today!!!! 🥊🥊🥊
I went KICKBOXING for the first time ever! OMG it was so much fun. I mean it killed me and I probably will need a wheelchair tomorrow. Hahaha! But it was AMAZEBALLS! Shout out to one of my besties, @laruelive, for inviting me to @9roundocoee!!! What a cool concept! Thanks for a great workout and another awesome FIRST for me this year! 👊🏾💪🏾

10 Shows in 2 Days...
Stretch forth your hands and pray for anyone you know who works at a Theme Park!!! The current temperature is 30 DEGREES ABOVE HELL!!! Whew Jesus, if you only come back just to save your theme park children, I’m A-Ok with that! Hahaha! Rescue us Lord! Well Universal, it’s been real...I have to go home and sit in a tub of ice now. 😩🔥😩

Oh don’t mind this chick! She’s just over here being FREE!!!!! 🙌🙌🙌
FREEDOM is one of my most valued possessions right now. For a long time I’ve been bound to certain things out of fear, expectation, insecurity...you name it. But those chains are coming off!!! And I can LAUGH in the face of all that has held me hostage. Things may be crazy, but I’ve got PEACE!! I don’t want anything or anyone that’s not FOR ME! I’M FREE!! Byyyeee! ✌🏾

You know why I’m smiling? Cuz PRAYER CHANGES THINGS!!! The disappointment that has been resting on me has been soooo heavy. But TUHDAY, I purposed in my heart to fight through fear and ask God to change my season. All I can say right now is WON’T HE DO IT??? 🙌🙌🙌 My information was requested by 8 theatres and I was called back to sing. THEN I got 2 unexpected callbacks via email.
UPDATE: My callback went GREAT! Afterwards, one more theatre requested my information!! Yaaaassss Lord!!! 🙌🙌🙌
God heard my prayers today for sure! I believe He is hearing yours too! DON’T GIVE UP! 🙏🏾🙌💞

Final Words About Vegas...
I lived my entire LIFE!!! Hahaha! Thank you @shalisasloanjames and @jeremyjamesfl for such an amazing gig and trip with @entertaincentral!!! I got to share the stage with some of Orlando, Vegas and LA’s fiercest singers! I reconnected with old friends. I broke my diet and ate ALL the yumminess! I ziplined. I gambled. Ok not really...I didn’t actually know what I was doing! Ha! I saw one of the most magical stage shows I have ever seen. KÀ by Cirque du Soleil left me SHOOK! I saw the fountains serenaded by @celinedion at @bellagio. I played in their garden! Hahaha! I had the most incredible city scape views from my hotel rooms! Slept with the shades open just to fall asleep and wake up to them. Oh wait...I never slept! Ha! Vegas...YOU DID NOT DISAPPOINT! And I will be back! @chrismkeough, Thanks for sharing this experience with me little brother! ♥️🎉🙌🏆🎭🎤♥️

I am playing the role of the lovely Charlayne Woodard! EEEK! A few weeks ago, I had an AMAZING audition in a room full of incredibly beautiful, SANGIN people! I felt good about it, but of course...”one never knows, do one?” Hahaha! But this time It was YES! Yaaaay! I absolutely ADORE this show! It was my very first REAL theatre production when I performed in the African American Theatre Ensemble’s production in Chicago. I fell in love with the music and the stage back then!

So mark your calendars for January and February of 2019. I know it’s a ways away. But trust me, you’re not gonna want to miss this cuz, “THIS JOINT IS JUMPIN’” Hahaha! 🙌🎭💗🎶🙌

Listen...
The way I needed this word today. Whew!
The last couple days have been pretty rough. You guys know I usually try to pick myself up pretty quickly and learn from every experience. Even when it SUCKS! Ha! But sometimes back to back blows can take a toll. Especially when you are TIRED! I’ve had 3 MAJOR opportunities in the last 2 months. Things that would have changed my life! Things that I thought were perfect. Each one better and bigger than the one before it. I was SO CLOSE! But they all ended up being NO. How? Why? Ugh! I found myself thinking about what the people who aren’t for me are thinking about me, what they may be saying about my lack of success. Yup, I gave the enemy a good ole open door to my mind and heart. Even with so many people for me, here I am wondering what some “may” be saying. Ones who actually don’t matter anyway. I think it was because I’ve been feeling like I have something to prove. But the truth is, we only have to prove ourselves to ourselves, and to our Creator. He holds the only opinion that matters. He also holds our futures and lives in the palm of His hand. Hearing from HIM in these valley seasons is what we really need. That’s the only voice that counts. So seeing this word from Him, and feeling the confirmation of this word in my spirit (along with the constant support and encouragement of my amazing VILLAGE) has helped me pick myself up today. It’s encouraged me to KEEP GOING. It’s breathed some life into my weariness. I know that God is in control. I know that He will open those doors that I’ve had the faith for for soooo long. It is going to be ok. The breakthrough (and the big break) is coming. The only way I won’t see it is if I quit. Giving up is not an option. Not for me. Not for you! Keep your head in the game. Tune in to the voice that matters. And TRUST! 🙌💗🙏🏾

GUYS!!!! I HAVE SOME GOOD NEWS!! 🙌
Getting a New York Agent is about as hard as booking Broadway! Hahaha! After months of interviews, auditions, phone calls, sending out my information...and getting absolutely nowhere, I finally got a YES! I’ve found an amazing home at FSE TALENT! They are wonderful and everything I’ve been praying for! They believe in me, support me, encourage and inspire me! AND...they are Believers! It’s truly incredible. With dozens of broadway shows under their belts, I fully trust them with this process and my career! I couldn’t have asked for a better partnership. Their words to me, “Now you have a team working with you to make this happen!” Ahhh, the tears! We can’t do this alone guys! Now I see why all the others had to be NO! God was creating the right YES, just for me! I haven’t smiled this hard in a while! Ha! I’m looking forward to ALL that the future has in store as they work hard to get me IN THE ROOM WHERE IT HAPPENS! This is gonna be an exciting journey! Thank you @nicoleppryor and @arbender2 for believing in me! Let’s do this!!! And thank you to my Broadway Dreamin’ Village who prays with and for me every step of the way on this journey. You stand by me through every failure and success and that means more to me than you know! We got a blessing y’all!!! LET’S CELEBRATE!!! 🙌🎭📋🎉💕🙌

Did I have a baby heart attack during my workout before my audition today? How was this heart rate possible??? 203!!! I’m pretty sure I’m not supposed to still be alive. Hahahaha! Well here is proof that I survived...I made it through an amazing audition (NAILED IT!) and had a cute little vegan lunch with my girls at #ethosvegankitchen! Yay! Not too shabby Tuesday! 💛🎭🍴💛

WE. DID. OUR. GOOD. SANGIN. ON. TONIGHT. Do you hear me??? I’m so proud of this group! The people got their coins worth for sure!! Some acting, a little moonwalking, and ALL THE RIFFS!!! Hahaha! Yes O-TOWN MOTOWN! Y’all did that! A man came up afterwards and said we made him realize just how much Motown’s music impacted his life. He was almost moved to tears. That’s why we do what we do! Such an awesome feeling to share SOUL Music with those who need it! ❤️🎤❤️🎤❤️

My microphone is bigger than yours! 👀
Hahaha! I had a blast last night taping an episode of the Hungry Cliff Podcast! It was so much fun and great practice for a little something I’m working on! Stay Tuned! 😉 Thank you @zumbawjessicah for inviting me and for giving me the BIGGEST MIC EVER! Hahahaha! 💕🎤🎧💕

AUDITION UPDATE:
Blood, Sweat and Tears...
That’s what paves the road to Broadway! Ha! I know people think this thing is all fun and games. Lissen Linda...it is no joke. I have worked everyday since I came back from Jacksonville. I came home from work last night and CRASHED! Woke up at 3am to excruciating stomach pain. Couldn’t go back to sleep. Got ready to head to church at 6am. Lead worship in pain with almost no voice (thank God for showing up because I was on fumes!) Then I headed out on a 2 hour drive to an audition for a theatre in Sarasota. 3 hours, a song, a monologue and a hard dance call later, I’m hitting the road back home to Orlando to start all over again. I’m EXHAUSTED! BUT I MADE IT!! No, it’s not all fun and games. IT IS HARD WORK! Blood, sweat and tears my friends! That’s what this journey is made of... 💗🎭💃🏾😩💗
