EXTRA EXTRA EXTRA!

And on this day in June of 2008 let it be known that this girl has talent. Update time! MAS National got word about what happened in Dallas, they said they loved my audition tape and although I was no longer the first place contestant that I was indeed 'note worthy'. Basically they asked if I would MC not one but two of the concerts.

Meaning
not only would I get to display my talent BUT I would have a larger portion in the production than originally offered. AND I would be the ONLY contestant nation-wide offered such a slot. When faced with family/friends, graduations galore, and weddings however I had to resign. That's right, I said "no thank-you". I mean talk about an Outlandish decision. I also donated my tickets and Sound of Reason dinner opportunity. As sad/bitter as I am however, I feel like it was the right choice. Family and friends are everything. I would be nothing without them. Here I was so excited for my dreams and yet so ready to abandon them.

The Muslim youth need a new voice, doesn't mean it has to be mine though. I would be the only female and youngest contestant to open. And, that speaks volumes. Maybe the entire Muslim nation won't get to hear my performance/material. Maybe I missed my 'big break'. But, there are some great Muslims out there that hold the same values and opinions as I. The Muslim youth need a new voice, and they have it. And that's all I ever prayed for. So let it be known that on this day in June of 2008 I officially endorse Zain Shamoon and Abdullah Dahduli the Detroit, Michigan & Dallas, Texas opening acts. I know them personally and although we don't talk [ever] we share a dream, a voice for change.

1. Anonymous- Kinda ironic how you want my name as you leave yours hidden huh? And as for being 'big' in the Muslim world it may seem that way but rest-assured I'm not.

2. Gossamer-Can't believe you didn't read the post below, you provoked it. Well not the event/decision per say but, the purging of such thoughts on Blogger.

yayaya I knew you were worthy of your initial award! I can't believe you turned down MC-ing that bad boy. I agree, if only we knew a name...

Also, I'm glad so many people publically posted that Kanye should suck it. I'm still a little peeved about that concert.
