Congratulations to my ultra-talented student, Haley Chapman, for making it to the next round of American Idol. Congratulations also to my other students who competed: Eve Saldibar, Grace Moso, and Kayla Kenny. I wouldn’t have recommended you guys if I didn’t think you’re all phenomenally talented. Eve, you should honestly take their “Broadwayish” comment seriously and go try out for Broadway. You’d have such a great shot. Grace, your stunning, unique voice will absolutely get you noticed someday if you stick with it. You’re really a special, completely original musician. And Kayla, you have to know that you’re amazing. I get swept away by your voice during lessons sometimes and need to remind myself that I’m supposed to be correcting you. There’s no doubt in mind that you’ll go places as you get older.
