Kaycee Perkins

When I was 14, I was given a lead part in the school play. They put Black Jack Gum on my front teeth and my song was “All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth”. The song was outstanding and I won the best spirit of the day. In high school, I was given the lead for the National Conference- However, my lead led to the demise of our choir. I was so off key. I was laughed at and put out of the choir. I thought I’d never sing again and literally left any type of group choir or situation that had anything to do with singing or using my voice.

When I discovered I could sing all by myself- I came back- but there was no one who needed or wanted a singer with a voice in-between notes.  But then I started singing solos, so I couldn’t blame anyone but me and it worked. I sang at weddings, funerals, church events, and all was well for a while. But my voice was an in-between note so I could never sing with anyone.

Now I’ve found a group that just wants to hear you sing- or at least carry a note. At the time in my life, I love coming of age.
