A Writer's Journey

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.

Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.

Fun Friday: X-Factor Snippet

For anyone who truly knows me - okay, even those that don't know me all that well *laughs* - it's not a big secret that I'm really into music. This, of course, includes any and all singing competitions like American Idol and The X-Factor. So, there I was...sitting on my bed, watching last night's two hour episode, rolling my eyes at all the cocky, self horn-tooting, wannabes...when this girl took the stage. Let me tell you, girl's got it going on. I had tears streaming down my face by the time the song ended and I wasn't the only one. But don't take my word for it...see for yourself. I promise you won't be disappointed. :D (p.s. You might wanna turn up the volume a bit *kicks crappy YouTube sound*)

And now for our regularly scheduled pretty... (another Disney edition! *grins*)


  1. It's the FAMILY! That's what made me cry. She's amazing. And Zachary Levi...yeah :)

  2. LOL, the smolder! I'll have to watch this clip later at home. I get all the music shows mixed up, but I really liked The Voice in the summer. Javier Colon's voice is beauuuutiful!

  3. She is FABULOUS! I did not expect that voice to come out of her. I can't believe she's only eighteen!

  4. Uh, WOW! She is amazing. And, I'm usually pretty critical of reality show singers.

    Oh, and I am the biggest Chuck fan. HUGE. So, yeah, love me some Zachary Levi.

  5. Thanks for visiting me, Anime! I do have the Google Friend Connect follower widget like yours, with all the little faces, but sometimes it doesn't load the first time.
