Sponsored By: MUSIC My First Recording Session: A Day to Remember December 21st, 2013 is a day I will remember for the rest of my life. It was on that day I had the chance to feel like a star! My whole life I have loved to sing. As we were thinking about special Christmas gifts for family last year, we decided to give an extra special gift. We decided it would mean a lot to family to give a piece of me. We decided to give a CD of me singing a special song. When my mom told me she was able to take me to a studio (The Pop Machine in Indianapolis) to record, I was so excited!!! BUT.. as the special day approached I found myself becoming more and more nervous. I felt unsure if I were really good enough to be on a CD. I mean... I don’t want to be one of “those” people on American Idol! Although I was full of questions, my fears were quickly put to rest the day I recorded. Recording felt amazing and powerful. It was a feeling I have never felt. Lindsay and Eric were amazing, kind, encouraging and supportive. Their intern Max was also there and made the environment even more fun. I was amazed at all the equipment and tools. Seeing how a song is put together for a CD was also really cool. I never realized how much work goes into recording a song! I have a new appreciation for the music I buy. I hope someday I will have the chance to record again. Music is my life, my expression, my passion. Music is ME!
