A Mariah Carey Song Is Not An Option
Here was (is) my dilemma:
If I were a contestant on American Idol next week, what would I sing? Keep in mind that the fact that I cannot sing is by no means a hindrance here in my personal la-la land.
And somehow this question has become all-too-real to me, like at some minute the AI producers are going to walk in my house and say, "Okay - time's up. Tell us RIGHT NOW." I feel an odd sense of urgency about my decision, because I'm, you know, INSANE.
Next week's competition has a country theme, but my talent cannot be limited by genre. I just can't work with that kind of process, people. Don't try to put a fence around my level of singing talent. Because the dogs, when they hear me, they will have to run free.
So here are my top three options:
"Independence Day" - Martina McBride - my country selection
"Bring It All Together" - Natalie Grant and my BFF Wynonna - my contemporary Christian selection
"Hard To Handle" - the Black Crowes version - this is my "break out" song to show the judges how versatile I am
Yours? And don't be shy. I know y'all. I have seen many of you sing into a hairbrush. So 'fess up.
