Performance Contest

Performance Contest
Performance Contest. Because don’t you love to listen to people performing?

Performance Contest is our latest aura reading here at the blog. Nothing like “The Voice.” Relax!

This Performance Contest will be a chance to win a particular kind of aura reading. One that I do with this new-to-the-blog skill of energetic literacy. Doing an aura reading based on hearing the voice of the nominee.

Maybe you enjoyed the recent aura reading of singer Charles Trenet. And the follow-up bits of aura reading.

Now I’d like to give you a chance to nominate a singer or actor. Or other person who might win a Grammy. Spoken word. Or a monologue!

Performance Contest Offers Something Special to Music Lovers

Have you ever listened to a singer… Maybe a singer you grew up listening to as a kid…  Even before the crazy-hype-hot-linked-always-tweetable times in which we all live now.

And you wondered… I wish I knew what that person was really like.

This contest, Blog-Buddies, is a unique way to find that out.

Performance Contest Requirements Are, Likewise, Specialized

Why are requirements specialized for entering this contest? Because I’ll need to be able to hear the voice of your nominee.

  • Could be speaking.
  • Or singing.
  • Or reciting.
  • Or acting.
  • Or talking at length.

How NOT to Win this Performance Contest

Just to avoid potential problems…

Blog-Buddies, I need to hear that nominated voice. Go to it right away. And have it continue for three minutes straight.

That will make my aura reading far easier. And, when entering a contest, it never hurts. If you make things easy for Rose. Once I get past that YouTube ad, hello! I want to hear that voice within 30 seconds (at most).

Neither going back and forth, like a duet. Nor continuous talking or singing by the person.

What else won’t work for me? Though it might be a very delightful performance, otherwise:

  • Not playing a flute.
  • Or even the glorious tambourine.
  • Not a cat that can sing.
  • Nope, only a human performer is eligible here.

One More Thing to Consider for this Performance Contest

Just like with a photo entry, guess what?

I’ll be reading the person at the time of the “voice photo.”

Is that bit of sound performance representative of the person? Or is it just in the role?

“What you see is what you get.” Surely, you’ve seen that saying.

Well, with this new kind of aura reading, same deal. Kinda. “What Rose hears is what she’ll read.”

Remember, because we’ve all been exposed to ideas of what psychics do. However, no skill of energetic literacy is like a psychic reading. Where Joe, the psychic,  smells perhaps a whiff of Gladys’s favorite perfume. And then Psychic Joe can track her down. Finding Gladys roaming on an obscure beach.

Okay, you’ve got the basics now, Blog-Buddies.

How to Enter this Performance Contest

Concluding this contest, I will choose three winners. No limit to your nominations. So enter as often as you like. Especially because choosing these YouTubes can be so much fun.

Please use a separate comment box for each contest nomination. Or more than one comment box, if it’s a long entry. (Which would be fine!)

To be considered a contest entry, your comment needs to include all the following:

  1. Choose a public figure you’re curious about.
  2. Supply the name of your nominee.
  3. Please supply a YouTube link to your nominee, doing a voice performance of some kind.
  4. Choose a recording from the time in that celebrity’s life you’re curious about. (Again, that’s how energetic literacy works. It’s about the person at the time. Being together. Or showing in a photo. Or, in this case, making a particular recording.)
  5. Describe what that person is famous for. Because not all of us may know that famous person as well as you do.
  6. Most fun of all… Please summarize why you’re curious about this person.

Contest closes November 2, 2017.

    Hi Rose! I’d like to nominate Lena Horne, singer, dancer, and civil rights activist..

    I love this clip of her in The Wiz singing “Believe in Yourself.”

    Such a powerful voice and so uplifting you feel like she is singing it to you giving you her some of her strength.

    I am super curious about the woman behind this voice, an African American woman who was a Hollywood star and sex symbol with a career that spanned decades starting in the late 1930’s. She broke through all kinds of barriers.

    You can read more impressive career and civil rights activism on Wikipedia: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lena_HorneWikipedia

    There is a story I love about how she handled a deeply unjust situation while entertaining troops for USO during WWII.

    Oh, this is easy! Bob Seger.

    I don’t know what he’s done politically, personally, publicly. All I know is his voice has always done it for me.

    It would be interesting to see what about his voice feeds my soul. Without knowing a single other thing about him.

    It might be that it takes me back to a time when it seemed like music truly did soothe my soul. Like nothing else could.

    This is a youtube soundtrack of his song ‘Night Moves’. No way to choose an absolute favorite!

    LIANE and LO, thank you for two fabulous first contest nominations.

    I wondered if such a new type of contest would inimidate entrants. You’ve proven to me that you Blog-Buddies are willing and able to join me. As we keep pushing the leading edge of deeper perception as a form of human birthright.

    Not psychic development but purely skill at energetic literacy. Learnable by anyone now who is energy sensitive. Just because we really are living in a new era on earth, The Age of Awakening.

    Rose Rosetree says:

    LO, you inspired me to read that section on Wikipedia: Political Activism.

    Like you, I was so moved by Lena Horne’s courage and resourcefulness. For example, during one performance: Positioning herself to stand deep into the audience, so she could honor African-American servicemen and other American servicemen, while keeping her back to the German POWs in her audience. Wow!

    Rose Rosetree says:

    Side note: When my grandfather was a prisoner of war, back in World War I, he stayed in a rather non-glamorous part of Siberia for five years.

    And I’m pretty darned sure he didn’t get to attend shows starring the likes of Lena Horne….

    I’d like to nominate Susan Boyle.

    https://youtu.be/ehI7VoNBYF4

    She made her breakthrough as a contestant on Britain’s Got Talent in 2009. She was in her late 40’s at the time.

    This linked recording is from 2014 after she had been in the spotlight for several years. She still has a quality to her singing that enchants me, and I would love to know what is going on with her while she sings.

    She fascinates me because of her fairly late entry into stardom, the public ridicule she endured for her appearance and because she has done all this as someone with Asperger’s syndrome. Also, her voice is amazing.

    My other choice would have been Morgan Freeman. Sadly, I am unable to find a long enough youtube video of his voice alone. Spent way too much time already!

    Does giving a talk count as a performance? Like an interview or a fiery speech?

  • 10
    Rose Rosetree says:

    Thanks for these latest contributions. 🙂

    Definitely, JNANA, speaking counts. Glad you asked, because the heading “Performance Requirements” has a bunch of bullets and this is addressed in #5.

    But then I go on to list a whole other bunch o’ bullets about what NOT to enter. I can see how all those yesses and no’s could be a bit much.

    Gosh, so you did. Have to confess to reading much too fast these days. Too much going on. Hoping normality will return soon.

    Cathy says:

    Oh, so exciting!

    I would like to nominate Grant Cardone.

    https://youtu.be/7GQVKZOS328

    Cathy says:

    He fascinates me on a variety of levels.

    As I work in direct sales, I am always looking for better training and motivation ( without the auric issues! lol)

  • 14
    Cathy says:

    His training is amazing, but so is his story, ways of building a business -he refuses to have anything to do with Wall Street, or a dozen other time-honored ways of doing business- while giving back and giving value.

  • 15
    Cathy says:

    He appears kind while being totally brash very often, he seems to have integrity and not much of a filter on his mouth!

    His training is unlike anything I’ve seen by most experts out there, and very effective.

    So curious to find out how real this all is!

    Lilian says:

    OK, here’s Josh Homme performing on Jools Holland. Of Queens of the Stone Age which are a rock band. He’s his own thing, like Jack White from the white stripes.

    Lilian says:

    He is the husband of Brody Dalle, who I managed to write a fan article on in the comments section a while ago.

    What I like about him is that he’s a brainy person with a lot of heart. A rock philosopher with an awkward sense of humour and a notoriously bad temper (in certain situations). Though not remotely enlightened, I reckon.

    He’s the band in an alternative non stripped back mode.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgPhQ8V146s

    But I nominate the above recording.

  • 18
    Lilian says:

    What I find interesting is that he’s letting his guard down more in his old age, but still in his brainy way.

    Villains of circumstance is about Brody, on the most part.

    And Domesticated Animals is about his dislike of being controlled (see first min of the recording.)

    Lilian says:

    One day I might ask for a session to ask why I love my favourite music quite so much. Rose, this isn’t a nomination, but could possibly be a theme song for you. I jest, but here are the lyrics. :-p

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9itwt_opsvQ

    Cause agony brings no reward
    For one more hit and one last score
    Don’t be a casualty, cut the cord
    Don’t be a casualty, cut the cord

    (Freedom, la la la la)
    (Freedom, follow me) Cut the cord
    (Freedom, la la la la)
    (Freedom, follow me, me, me)

    Just read the post of James Taylor aura reading. The question “Do you have a song these days?” made me think of this one for me.
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Hv1SphSuw60

    It’s not the greatest example of what a person can be, but I love this song anyway. Sorry about the goofy images the user placed on this video.

    Christine says:

    I would like to nominate the singer Shakira. She from Colombia and is famous being the best selling Colombian artist, as well as singing in English and Spanish.

    I am curious about this person because she is my favorite Spanish language singer, is beautiful and talented, and seems to genuinely care about giving back to her home country.

  • 22
    Christine says:

    Here is the youtube link to the most recent song I like of hers.

    Valerie says:

    I have a nomination Rose, and Caroline here is a song that I find to be very uplifting 🙂

    My nomination is for Antje Duvekot singing “Merry Go Round”:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HF1Wz4qc7fo

    Valerie says:

    To me this is a song about how we couldn’t appreciate beauty, love, and light as we do if it weren’t for ugliness, hate, and darkness to show us the contrast.

    Also that there is always something good going on for someone, somewhere in the world 🙂
