I MADE IT TO THE SEMI-FINALS YAY!!
Pretty unbelievable given my bad throat and the crazy number of professionally trained singers there! I mean… Just TEN out of fifty people were selected to move on to the next round so how on earth could this untrained bathroom songstress be selected amongst so many talented others????
Honestly, I really think this wouldn’t be possible without my prayer. Just… Thank you God for pulling me through this one. I told God to heal my throat for the duration of the song so I wouldn’t cough and the moment I held the mic, I felt the thick lump of phlegm in my throat disappear. When I belted out the notes, I didn’t feel the strong urge to cough like in my practices at home. It’s a miracle - one that was incredibly surreal cos I managed to hit the note at the end properly. So thank you God, for protecting me and giving me a second chance to sing in the semi-finals.
Amidst my busy schedule, I always remind myself to find time to pray. And many times when I thought my prayer goes unanswered, God always surprises me. No doubt the disappointment of my rejection from DFS weighs heavy on my shoulders; but I have a strong hunch that this is God telling my this job is probably not the one for me. This could partially be my way of protecting myself from the truth that I’m not as competent and using God as my excuse but I truly truly believe that God knows things about me that I don’t. This rejection is not entirely a bad thing as well. I get to stay in Singapore and be with my loved ones. It’s a good thing for my relationship as well as I want to focus on strengthening it too.
