For the record, Heather, I was rejected from Britain's Got Talent in 2011. And I had an equally large-scale failure with losing at the semifinals to Waterflame at last year's NG Audio Deathmatch -- the loss was not what embittered me, but the remarks by some users and even a judge. I swear, I spiral out of control just thinking about it.
Did these ever stop me from singing? HECK NO.
There is goodness, beauty and truth to be spread in the world. We've been given the gifts of our voices. I have heard your singing, and I'll get to reviewing a few of your pieces shortly. But the point is, lack of exposure, or even constant rejection, can be very disheartening and sometimes, we may even give in. But deep down, we have hope burning like a flame. Let that hope fuel our singing.
On that note, I'll be glad to collaborate with you one of these days.
