Waiting for my turn
Roxy tiptoed through the crowd surrounding her while smiling and avoiding stepping on anyone. She didn't mind the attention but it did make it hard to do her normal daily stuff. Once she got on the stage the put a guitar by the piano so she could switch off.
Roxy: Well I am going to perform two cover songs and two of my own if that is alright.
Ms. Kopper: Very good. Begin when you are ready then.
Ms. Kopper kept a straight expression with everyone so it was hard to tell what she thought of her students. It kept them on edge and respectful which was a big positive. then Roxy picked up her acoustic guitar and began to play her first cover song.
Wish you were here..
She received a large applause as smiled back at the students. Then after the noise simmered down she played another cover song.
Once again the students applauded her with joy and smiles. When she was ready she played one of her songs.
The students applauded loudly. When she was ready she played one of her songs.
Party in the USA
Since this was one of her big hits she got a much louder applause by the students. Ms. Kopper gave a partial smile as she looked up and spoke.
Ms. Kopper: Thank you Ms. Roker. Okay next is Dave Myers.
Heath turned to Rose during the brief period that was taking Dave Myers to get set up. "So, what do you think? Are we going to end up painting scenes for any of these people?"
Rose nodded "Probably, they are all so good. I'm not sure how anyone can pick between them." She paused. "I couldn't do never do that. Get up in front of people and perform, like that."
Heath smiled, leaned in a little closer. "So, when your art was on the walls of galleries that was ok." He was careful to not let anyone over hear because he knew Rose didn't want a lot of people knowing. He knew, Sam knew and their art teacher knew but as far as he knew that was all.
"You know that was different. I could have put on a disguise and walked around one of my showings and no one would have known it was me."
Heath shook his head slightly, he went to say something else but Rose put a finger to her lips and nodded towards the front where Dave Myers was starting his performance. Dave Myers didn't sing or play guitar or piano. He played saxophone, really truly amazing saxophone. He introduced each song, 4 of them altogether, and was met with applause.
"Thank you. Mr. Myers." Dave took his seat. "Next we'll hear from Kyle Foster"
Kyle might have been nervous going after Roxy but he had been around the music industry people his entire life. Not just the executives but stars. Kyle had acknowledged she was good, really good, good enough he wouldn't mind jamming with her but that would be more up to her than him, he was sure, but that didn't make him nervous more just knowing the game with a star in it meant it was upped. He had a healthy respect for having to go after her.
He walked to the front with his guitar. Introduced himself as everyone else had done. His name was Kyle Foster; he was trying out for... He took out his guitar sat down and performed Somebody to Love. The second song he performed was an original song called Better Than I Know Myself. He got to his third song and he put down the guitar and went to the Piano.
"For my next song, I'm going to perform Mad World." He finished that song. And went into his last song, also on the piano. "One" He finished to applause, like the rest except Roxy who had, expectantly, fans in the audience.
Dawn had watched the performances that came after her; especially Roxy's. She, of course, knew who she was and would really like to jam with her but figured if she got chosen, she did, and if not well it was what it was. She had been watching the other performers and was trying to see who might be a good fit. She watched Kyle and the boy seemed able to do vocal gymnastics. Maybe, a true 4 ocative, possible.
