Where He Brought Me From
Chapter 3: This is your song
3.4 This is your song: Dream Come True
Jessica slowly got up and straightened her dress. She smiled at Kash and then walked over to him. Kash opened the door behind the reception desk that led to his office and several other offices.
He softly whispered in her ear don’t be nervous as she walked past him and through the door. Kash came in behind and softly shut the glass door. Right this way he said as he led the way to a huge room with double glass doors.
In the room sat four of the biggest names in music and entertainment. Lee Russell Oscar winning screenwriter, Danny Bleed Grammy winning guitarist and songwriter, Justin Humphrey Oscar winning fight and dance chorographer and Chris Cullen one of the best managers in music and film history. Jessica was really nervous now because she looked up to these people. Kash opened the double doors and Jessica slowly walked in.
Have a seat Chris Cullen told her as he motioned to the seat at the head of the long rectangle shaped table. Jessica quickly sat down and Kash took a seat next to her.
Everyone this is Jessica Kealoha Kash said. Okay Jessica tell us a little about yourself then let us hear your song Kash said.
Jessica stood up and smiled at everyone as she let out a deep breath. Hi I’m Jessica and I’m twenty-four years old she said. I have been writing song, poetry and stories for as long as I could talk she added. At the moment I make my living performing at local bars, I also sing, play the guitar and piano she said. I like to think that I am a great writer because I can write for any genre I don’t limit myself she told them. She began to pass out sheet music for her song to all the people in the room. My song is called “So Glad to say Goodbye” Jessica said. Jessica took out the CD she had made on her laptop of the song and put it in the CD player. Jessica pressed play but the song didn’t come on, she started to panic franticly pressing the play button. The CD player doesn’t seem to be working she said laughing nervously.
Everyone just sat there stone faced until Chris Cullen said I guess you will have to sing for us then.
Okay Jessica said. Is there a piano or guitar? She asked.
No Kash answered.
This was crazy, the track Jessica had created on her computer to accompany the song was amazing it had guitar, piano and drums with cool sound effects. Jessica had even used really cool effects on her voice on the CD but now all she had was her regular voice to impress the judges.
Okay that’s cool she said.
Jessica looked at her sheet music for a second to familiarize herself with the song. Ten she place the sheet music on the table and began to sing. She imagined herself on stage at one of those bars she performs at and she just sung like her life depended on it. When Jessica was finished she looked around the room to solemn faces. She couldn’t tell if they hated it or loved it.
Okay misses Kealoha you can go back out to lobby and wait for our decision Chris Cullen said.
As Jessica gathered up her things Kash winked at her and she smiled. His smile made her feel like maybe things went good and she cheerfully went back out to the lobby to wait.
