5,4,3,2,1 and it HAPPENED!! MY first feature in LA at this open mic night spot called "The Pocket LA"...I am still on cloud 9 over this experience. I was honored to share my gift and tell my story ... ALSO I really wanted to represent for Miami!!. After my set, I got emotional because this was a goal of mine and also I wanted to show the audience so much more of me...I didn't want to get off that stage lol ...there was so much more I wanted to show and tell them. Thank you to The Pocket LA for having me and receiving my original song "Queendom" as well.... believe it or not I was nervous to sing my original song because my songs are like my children lol I am real sensitive about my shit! lol
But this is the start of so many things here in LA and everywhere. During this trip, I have LEARNED A LOT not only on a musical level but also on a personal level. So many thoughts went through my head ..."Should I stay or should I go", "Am I ready," "Is LA ready for me", , "Are their reliable people here ," "Is it time"...blah blah blah but anytime a move or change is happening thoughts will cloud your mind but what keeps me balanced is God and that feeling when I finished my set at The Pocket just confirmed my need to be here...
I am grateful that men and women were blessed by my set and that means the world to me it TRULY DOES!! I don't know the full reason as to why LA is calling my name but I am listening and I am willing to take this chance. I am forever grateful to The Pocket LA and the musicians and shout out to ALL the beautiful people I met. So if anyone is reading this post...I just want to encourage you take a LEAP!! DO IT!! write that song, open up that business, write your book LIVE YOUR PURPOSE AND MANIFEST THE HELL OUT OF YOUR LIFE!! YOU ARE WORTH LIVING OUT YOUR PURPOSE!!
