Danielle, Dani, DVa. BIG weekend coming up for this girl. I’d like the entire box to think of her on Saturday and send good vibes as she chases her dream of being on The Voice! I asked her about the details of her upcoming audition. Be sure to wish her luck when you see her this week.
You are auditioning for The Voice! Can you tell us about it? Dates, location, details? What song will you sing? My audition for The Voice is this Saturday on January 11th at 2:00 pm at the Philadelphia Convention Center in Philly. I will audition a capella for my first song. The song I will sing is “Hey Lover” by Keri Noble. If they ask me to sing a second song I will sing “Stars” by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. After my audition they will call me back 1-3 days afterward if I made it. I then have to sing up to 3 other songs with tracks. I will be singing 1+1 by Beyonce, Stompa and not sure what else.
How long have you been singing? I have been singing since I was 5 that I recall.
What type of music do you like to sing? My favorite genre of music is blues and R&B…I love singing to Susan Tedeschi, GNP, Jill Scott, India.Arie, Erykah Badu, Donny Hathaway…
How has CrossFit helped with your singing? Crossfit has helped me gain confidence in myself once again by becoming stronger and more fit. I love being competitive while also having fun and Crossfit brought the athlete out in me once again. It has helped me to strengthen my core which is super important for singing. Breathing is very important as well and Crossfit has helped me with my lung capacity overall.
Anything else you would like to share that relates to CrossFit, your Music, Spirituality? I have struggled for many years to chase my dreams of singing…when I do make it on The Voice, my purpose is to love others who are blessing me with this opportunity, and second to showcase that my talents and gifts come from God. I am so blessed to have Crossfit in my life to help me keep up with my son Lucien. Crossfit and singing are two of my top passions.
Good Luck Danielle, everyone at HVCF is behind you! Kill it!
