Back in the day, I was a talented singer. I will never forget the day that my music teacher invited me to be a part of an exclusive choir. A choir that consisted of 1 boy and 1 girl from each elementary school. I was immediately under the impression that I would soon be more famous than Michael Jackson. That the brief stint in this choir was just a stepping stone to being skyrocketed into fame. Was my first hit single going to air on Total Request Live with Carson Daly? Would I be featured at the VMAs? The sky was the limit.

Then I hit puberty.....And my golden voice got a little "squeaky." My dreams were shattered. Kind of. I soon gained the golden voice that landed me a job in radio. So, it somewhat worked out in the end. Still waiting on my invite to the VMAs though.
