By Joe Terzi I always wanted to be a singer. I know that I have the voice and motivation to achieve my goal as a professional singer. After school every day I would go to the music shop and have a retired singer tutor me. With each day I felt I was getting better and better. I finally got a gig to open for a local band. I was tense and very nervous. Midway through the performance the audience stated booing. I ran off the stage disgusted by the crowd. How can people be so cruel? But I didn’t give up. I practiced and got another chance to prove myself.
