I sit there waiting and my heart races and beats faster. My leg starts shaking, listening and waiting to hear my name being called to the stage. Finally I hear it…......”Please welcome Yasmine Roc.” I slowly walk on, praying one more time before I step foot in front of the audience. I look out into the audience and smile but as soon as I start I focus my attention on one spot on the wall. I start singing the words, the notes, the music takes over me and I love it. As soon as I hit that last note, I smile on the inside, and as soon as I hear the clapping and cheers, I smile on the outside. My spirit is lifted and that is the best experience in the world.
