Need your opinion

4 Jun

So I got this email a few weeks back letting me know about this singing competition the city of Riverside is putting on.  There is money involved so I figured, what the heck?  I signed up today.  I get nervous for performance things (some people think that’s wierd ’cause I sing in front of a couple thousand every Sunday, but thats worship.  Its different) so I am hoping that the more audition stuff I do, the less nervous I will get.   The audition is Friday night and the finalists will sing at a Concert in the Park thing in August. 

But I need some help.  What song to sing?  I have it narrowed down to a few:

     1.  Black Velvet (Alannah Myles) – good for my voice.  Maybe a little too karaoke?

     2.  I Love Rock and Roll (Joan Jett) – very simple, but everyone knows it and easy to get crowd participation

     3.  Before He Cheats (Carrie Underwood) – great song, but maybe too recent.  When you sing a song that is popular, people always compare you to the original.

Help me out.  What do you think I should sing?  Any other ideas?

    My vote is for black velvet. You can throw down a nice bit of attitude and vocal face kicking with that baby. Maybe even wear some while you sing it. 🙂
