Sing......sing a song....lalalalla

I'm at odds with myself.......everyone who has ever heard my youngest daughter sing, has either asked for her autograph to save for when she hits it big time and they can sell it on eBay to buy that house they always wanted......or wants to be in her biography on VH1 before they were stars. I was always told it's just a matter of time for someone to hear her and she will be pursued by many a record label.


Well, it kinda has happened and even though I am thrilled for her, I am also afraid for her......"The Industry" is only out for itself and chews up and spits out sweet kids like her all the time. It's a major recording label and they are extremely interested in my 14 year old daughter. I have only agreed on a meeting, I have so many questions.....I want what is best for her....and if turning down a recording contract at the age of 14 is best for her then I am prepared to do it. As soon as I can offer more information on this, you can bet this very proud Momma will be shouting off the roof tops.........I can't even go there in my mind....driving around in traffic and hearing my baby singing to me through the radio........mind blowing huh??


If you are new to my journal you can hear Rachel sing in previous audio entries found in my "other journals" She can sing anything....country, pop, rock even flawless soprano..what a gift she has!


Wish us luck!

oh wow, that is terrific.  As long as Momma's there - all is good. And I know that you can be a big bear of a Mom when you have to be. When I first heard her voice I said to myself this child needs to be "found".  I'm so excited for her and the whole family....just wonderful....Sandi http://journals.aol.com/sdoscher458/LifeIsFullOfSurprises

HOLY COW!!!  What a set of pipes!  I LOVE Patsy.  It's a joke between my kiddies and I that when they here Patsy in the car, they know it's time to start our summer trip.  You must be so proud...and scared.  PLEASE keep us posted (no pun). ;)  C.  http://journals.aol.com/gdireneoe/thedailies

     Whatever you decide will be from the heart and that has to be more important than the contract itself. Good luck to you no matter what you decide.

I will keep you and your decision in my prayers.  It is hard, I wish she were just a bit more grown up than that.  I think more maturity under her belt would be a good thing.  Its hard having that light on you.  Its not just the companies but its also the fans and the attentions they give.  Could your family survive under that kind of pressure.

Still I wish her all the best and I know whatever she decides she has you to help guide her.

I, of course, wish her luck.... but mostly I wish wisdom for you. This will be a hard decision, I'm sure. She is sooo young, and you want what is best for her, whatever that may be... So, good luck! I have my fingers, toes and anything else I can cross for you!

That is great! If she is grounded & has family then she'll be ok. It is what you make of it!

The most wonderful thing about her gift...is it can be shared...it is like having a light and putting it on the stand...so all might see more clearly...cMp

A dream come true for any talented young girl. She's lucky to have a cautious Mum like you, we've all heard the nightmare stories. With you behind her plus her own God-given talent she could be on her way to the BIG time! Best of luck.

That is exiting news, and I do wish you luck.  I know that it is a scary thought to have your child sucked into that world, but if she doesn't take her shot she will always be left wondering.  So support her, and be her eyes and ears.  I can't wait to hear her on the radio!
