Expanding possibilities for people with vision loss


Hi. My name is Brittany and I have been singing and songwriting since I was about the age of 4. I am now the age of 12. Indeed a young child. I would like to have a chance in this career. I have been striving for this dream for a long time. I love it more than any career out there. I write my own songs and sing. The largest crowd I have sang in front of would be about 100 people. It was scary but I got through it. This is my real life dream and I want to get reconignized for the career I love best.

Re: Singing/Songwriting

I would suggest a lot of practice and a lot work and feedback. Do you sing with your local chorus, perform, and take lessons. Often people are not aware of their true talents or skill leves. It is important to seek honest feedback from people who know what they are talking about. We don't walways ask people who work in a related industry and judge talent for critical feedback. Asking our family member and friends doesn't always lead us in the right direciton.

So, get feedback from people who are knowledgeable about singing and performing. Just like any talent, it takes practice and hardwork. Even professionals take lessons and work with vocal coaches.

There are typically no fast tracks to success, and it takes time and effort to succeed. Good luck!
