Growing up, I wanted to be a singer. The dream originated as early as I can remember. Every night, I would fall asleep listening to FM radio on a small boombox in my bedroom in the small town where I grew up.
Although I was very young, I loved music and connected to it on a visceral, emotional level. I would stay up as long as I could because I just loved to lay there listening to the hooks of the pop songs.
Since I was listening to early-to-mid 1990s Top 40 radio, I fell asleep focused on the words and vocal melodies of Tom Petty, Sarah McLachlan, The Goo Goo Dolls, Third Eye Blind, Counting Crows, Fleetwood Mac, Radiohead, Alanis Morissette, Jewel, Elton John, and many others.
I’d close my eyes and imagine I was on a stage singing the lyrics that resonated with me so much, under spotlights, connecting with a crowd of people.
