My Fresh Cuts Journey! #BossipFreshCuts

FreshCuts2

Hey World! I know how much info. I’ve been throwing at you guys lately, so I wanted to do a breakdown of my Fresh Cuts Journey for ya!

*BOSSIP is an online gossip & entertainment magazine with a focus on African-American & Black celebs, pop culture, & entertainment. They began season 2 of their Fresh Cuts contest back in March, in hopes of finding the next R&B Star! Check out my timeline below 🙂 *

  1. Auditions @ Emory University

I found out about the auditions the day before and thought I was gonna miss it due to a scheduling conflict; but it turned out they had auditions at 3 different times/locations. I showed up to Emory University, filled out my paperwork, and waited my turn to sing. All of the applicants had to perform in the middle of the University Center – Ah! (Needless to say, I got a pass to the next round. Lol)IMG_3870

  1. Public Voting via Twitter

I have to give it to ya’ll. All of you that voted & took the time out to watch my audition video helped me get to the next round. I got over 3,000 views in just a week! THANK YA’LL. 

  1. Top 3!

I found out on a Monday morning that I was officially a Fresh Cuts Finalist! That was an exciting week. Schedules had to be changed around, shopping needed to be done lol, and I had to prepare for my interview and final performance.

  1. The Showcase ?FreshCuts3

Call time was at noon because each finalist had to get hair and makeup done for the big nightThis was a huge deal for me. I had the chance to get styled by Professional Hair (Nikk Nelson) & Makeup artists (Mimi J + Shantell Simms), meet lots of people, perform in front of a new audience, and get instant feedback from people in the entertainment industry. (Oh, and EVERYTHING was filmed lol.) My people came out to support me, including some first timers who had never seen me live before 🙂 I couldn’t have been happier. Thank Ya’ll!   FreshCuts1 FreshCuts5
