My colleagues have signed me up for auditions for “The Voice”.
You can imagine my surprise when I opened my mailbox last week to find I had an invitation for the first audition-round for the new season!
They invited me to the Medialaan headquarters. I had to be there may 20th at 6 pm and I had to prepare a song. (duration: 60 sec)

For me this instantly meant: STRESS! 🙂 Of course I love to sing, and I would really want to make it to the blind auditions but… am I good enough? To find me a song to sing didn’t take really long. Not only do I love to sing, I also love to rap! (yeah that’s right : RAP! 😉 )
So I chose to do Billionaire by Bruno Mars ft. Travie McCoy.
This is one of my all time favorites: the perfect combination of both singing and rapping. And it’s a fun and happy song! I’ve been singing this one for a while now, and I kinda made my own rendition of Travie’s rap.

Of course it also meant: what am I going to wear? It were only first auditions, but I knew they would be taped and I wanted to look nice! (you never know if it maybe affects my audition 😉 ) I put some thought into it, and I decided to wear all black. Not also is this always a good choice, it’s also slimming… that’s always good, right? 😉
(the camera always adds 10 pounds they say… I can’t really afford that haha!)
I found this beautiful top at ZEB by Astrid Black Label, sleeveless and with a leather collar.
Simple yet fashionable!
I combined it with my black skinny jeans and of course my Chucks. Continue reading
