Music has always been a passion of mine ever since I can remember. From pre-school up until high school, I was always involved in musicals and my schools choir. However, I didn’t really begin to notice until I picked up the keyboard. I got my first keyboard around the age 10 and I completely fell in love. I learned to play by ear and my family quickly began to take notice of my musical talents. Thereafter, I received a keyboard each year as one of my birthday presents from various relatives. It got to the point where I no longer had much space for them as my closet was beginning to get full (yes it’s still full).
I loved my first instrument dearly, but towards the end of elementary school I knew the real instrument that I wanted to master was the guitar. I used to be in my school band back then playing the clarinet but our music teacher was a guitarist. I thought that was the coolest thing in the world, and I had always vowed to her that I would learn one day one my own, and I did. People always told me that I was very good and when I mustered up the courage to sing in front of them as well, they always told me that I had something special. It’s easier to hear that from someone else than to believe it yourself, and for a while I was on the fence about it. You see, I didn’t always have the courage and belief in my own talents to be able to perform solo in front of people, but one day it hit me. I had an epiphany and that little voice said “Errone, you didn’t just wake up like this. You have a God given talent and there’s no way He doesn’t want you to use it somehow. Get out there.” So I did. I forced myself to break out of my shell, preformed a few times in front of a club I was in, in college, sang and played some originals at a local park and watched a little crowd gather, and put myself out there on social media. I was amazed at all of the positive responses I got back from people and it was awesome to see that they enjoyed listening to me!
When I found out about Mobstar it was even better! I always wished that someone out there in the universe would create an app for talents specifically and boy did that come to pass! Mobstar is that extra push that all people with great talents needed and I’m so happy that I’m a part of it. This site helped me grow and gain a lot more confidence that I needed and for that; this ex-shy girl, turned confident rockstar thanks you!
