My experience as a singer is, at best, in an amateur level as I didn't have any vocal lessons. But my entire family is musically-inclined hobbyist so the love for singing and dancing came naturally.
I've won several competitions from the time I was 7 years old;
Talent America 2nd place in the teen section when I was 15 years old in New York;
Signed with Universal Records in 2009 but I dropped for immoral reasons.
I don't really believe that it's my singing that won those competitions. I dance and I have a bold personality, and together with my singing, I was able to wing the competitions.
BUT what I want to practice on at this moment in time is to start writing songs. I actually prefer not to be on the spotlight, but I would love to hear artists sing the lyrics that I wrote from my personal collections and experiences.
The "Can't believe" is the first song I have ever written. I would like to keep practicing and documenting my improvements by uploading and posting it here.
I am requested from time to time to perform at charity functions, bday parties and corporate events. I don't actively search for these gigs, they are from my volunteer positions, friends/families and workplace.
Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera, Whitney Houston, Adele, Tamia, 3LW, Frankie J...mostly R&B and Soul singers.
Vocals, USB Mic and Adobe software application
I created a personal blog site that has my music, my arts, my randomness, my other hobbies in it. If you would like to get to know the real me, even virtually, come check me out at http://dhestiniee.wordpress.com/
