What I Might Sing If I Auditioned For 'the Voice'
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

This week, auditions are being held for the televised singing competition known as "The Voice". As I watched the first night of auditions, I enjoyed seeing the new talent and learning who had a successful audition and would be allowed to compete for the title of "The Voice". I even started thinking of what song I might sing if I were to audition. I know that I would get one chance--I would not be allowed to try another song if the first one did not work for me. The song would have to fit my voice.

One song I might choose is "Hopefully Devoted to You", from the movie Grease. I am a soprano, so this song would be ideal. Its notes fit my range--they are neither too high nor too low. In addition to this song, there are other songs that I might pick to audition with, however.

Another song I might choose is "Try", by Pink. I love this song, and I love Pink as an artist. Keeping in mind that "The Voice" is a family show, I would need to pick a song that would be appropriate for television. The song, therefore, could not contain offensive lyrics. "Try", I believe, would be good. It is about perseverance, and its lyrics are alright. This song would also fit my voice. I already know, because I have sung along when I heard it on the radio. However, I would need to be sure to breathe properly, because Pink hits some high notes in this song. They sound beautiful, and with proper breathing, I am sure that I could make them sound pretty. Improper breathing, however, would make them sound terrible. Rather than being allowed to compete, I would be turned away. In addition to this song, there is another song that I would add to my list of songs to choose from for my "Voice" audition: "I'm Gonna Be Strong" by Cyndi Lauper.

I like this song because it is a short song--perfect for an audition, when there are many other people waiting for their chance to impress the coaches. I also like it because this song, like the others I have mentioned, fits my voice and contains lyrics appropriate for a family show.

After getting over my stage fright, I would love to sing in front of an audience. I would also love meeting and becoming friends with the other people in the competition. Each week, I would strive to be better, so that I would not be voted off the show. There is one thing, however, that I would not love.

If I knew that my past performances had not been great, I would expect to be voted off the show. While I would not enjoy leaving the competition, I would be graceful about it. Rather than crying and making a scene, I would thank the coaches for helping me, thank the audience for voting for me, say goodbye to my friends, and then leave. If my exit came as a surprise, however, I might not take it so well.

While I would enjoy being part of this competition, I cannot see myself entering into the music business, writing songs rather than articles, and touring the country to perform in front of thousands of screaming fans. If I were to enter into this business, I see myself as a "one-hit wonder"--someone who has one big hit, several less successful songs, and then is never heard from again.

I believe that I have found my niche in online publishing. This industry fits me well. It has helped me to be happier and to get more out of life.
