I’ve been in many singing contests; the first contest I was in, was in elementary school. I was 7 years old and I sang, “The Gambler”, by Kenny Rogers. I ended up winning the talent show; the entire school started calling me, “Little Kenny.”
I believe this is where I got the bug to start singing. Could I be a singer? Did I have the gift to entertain others?
There were many other contests; I won a few and some I didn’t, but I never finished below 3rd place in any contest.
The most memorable contest was when I was ranked 1st in the Country, in the “Country” category, and was in the top 5 in all genres. This show consisted of many talent agencies and record labels judging. This was very satisfying, which helped to encourage me to go further.
Stardom doesn’t happen easy for some; I have fallen under that category, however it hasn’t stopped me.
