Due to being extremely busy, I am posting a video from February of my freshman year. I participated in the Miss UCF pageant, and this was one of the first times I'd performed at UCF. I'd performed original songs before, mostly at my mom's store, but this was sort of different. I was being "judged" on my talent (how does one "judge" talent?) as a part of the competition. I wished I'd been able to sing the whole song, but had to cut it short to meet the time limit. I was pretty nervous.
The audience started "the clap" (which also happened to me at graduation when I played an original song as part of my speech, and my guitar was totally out of tune...) I feel like the clap always happens when people don't really like the music, to encourage the musician/band to keep going to finish the song or something. Another reason (which makes more sense) to start the clap would be if encouraged by the singer/band to clap. In this case, I was not encouraging anyone, nor was I in need of encouragement...but people started clapping. I already have issues with staying on tempo, so I think the clap threw me off more. However, I didn't really care that it was happening. A line in my song right before the chorus "can it wait 'til I'm done" seemed to be misinterpreted by the audience. They thought I was asking them to stop clapping until I was done! A friend of mine told me this after the performance, and I personally thought it was hilarious.
Well enough blabbing, here it is! :) 11/11 posted on 8/8 ;P I love repeating numbers...
