    My name is Sanytra Simeon and I am from Miami, FL but I stay in Raleigh, NC… I am in the Army National Guard and have a 18 month old little girl. God has Blessed me with a voice that I feel he wants me to share with the world. I have been told many of times that I wasn’t going to do anything with myself and i REFUSE to believe that. God has a place for me and I feel that singing is what is going to get me there.. I have a story to tell and things to show, I haven’t had the best life but with the smile on my face, you would never know what I have been through. I am doing this MAINLY for my daughter, she is my PUSH to continue forward. I want to show her that there is more to life that where and how we live.. I want to show her that you can do ANYTHING with the help of God and you putting your dreams 1st.. I want to get out of the military and persue my dream.. I don’t want to be in the industry for the money, I want to do it because it’s my passion, it’s my life’s work.. When you do what you love, it’s not working, that is what I want to do.. I don’t want to work, I want to have fun… I hope that this message reaches you and puts a smile on your face. Thank you for reading and hope to hear from you soon.

    I don’t want anyone to feel sorry for me but I want to fulfill my mom’s dying wish. My mom unexpectedly died Oct 7,2013 and my big sister Lynette said my mom kept saying is Danny still singing,unfortunately recently I’ve only sang at funerals. I sang “I will always love you” at my dad’s 4/4/2012 passing he was only 61,I sang “Take me to the King “at my mom’s 10/07/2013 funeral. I want to stop being the funeral singer and fulfill my passion and start singing for the love of it again. I don’t want anyone to feel sorry for me but to only be 25 I’ve lost a lot but I think I have a lot to offer the world. I also wanna be on this show because Latifah you lost your brother at a young age like me ,so I believe you know how to channel pain into creativity and would be a good mentor. Below is a sample of me singing.

    I’m the least of many in this small place called Paducah, KY. The saying, “Can anything good come from Paducah?” I believe it can, but it takes hard work and dedication to get to the other side. If interested in a small town girl, who is 12 and have big dreams then I’m the one you are searching for. Check out my performances on listed under my name: Shi’Ann Jones.

  5. Brandi Jones

    Hi! I’m Brandi from Goldsboro, Nc I am 19 married with two beautiful children. I can say that I love singing but it’s obvious I do because I’m commenting right? Ha-ha. OK I am a youth choir director for by church and I have been singing for as long as I can remember. I’ve always felt like I was the one that’s never been the “one” I’m always just beneath someone else. I’ve wanted to give up so many times I’ve always felt overlooked. Recently I’ve just been told to keep trying and not give up that someone will see my talent one day. I’ve auditioned for American Idol, the voice and other talent shows. I got one call back and since then ive had a determination like never before. I would love this opportunity to know my faith and hard work paid off! This is what I want in my life to sing.

If u afford him this chance I can promise you that you will not regret it nor will you be disappointed. Thank you very much and we hope to hear from you soon.

  10. Tyrone C

    Please consider my granddaughter Dije for your show. Dije is a 16 year rising senior at Baltimore’s BSA. She has a very powerful voice with an equal dose of sweetness that belies her years. She has won several competitions in the past 2 years in both Classical and Contemporary Categories. She recently sang the National Anthem in front of 15,000 at Oregon Ridge with Baltimore Symphony Orchestra on July 4th after winning a competition. Two weeks ago she sang the anthem at the Orioles game at Camden Yards on July 29th. On August 13th, she will sing the Anthem at the Washington Mystics game at the Verizon Center. She was a finalist in the Schmidt Competition last summer and won the award for the top Sophomore. Dije has been singing in church since she was 7 and is working towards her dream of being an Opera singer. She is very humble about her talent…..yet confident in her ability.

  11. Patrick

    Hello I am Patrick. I have read through some of the other heartfelt comments and have to admit mine will be considered unorthodox. My request is not for myself but for my wife. She is an awesome person with an amazing talent. She has loved singing since she was much younger, she is 21 now, but regardless of the difficulties that entailed the pursuit of her dreams she always kept that dream ablaze. We were in Seattle for a bit where she auditioned several times and unfortunately when she was selected for an IMTA event we did not have the funds for her to travel to it. Due to the nature of my work she had to move back to Miami, our hometown, and has since lost faith in the chance of her becoming the star that she has the potential to be. She loves to sing, is happiest when she does so and has a natural talent for it. She has a kind heart and a voice that echoes through the memories of those fortunate enough to hear it. I ask not for the opportunity but simply that you would listen to her sing her talent speaks for itself. I have a demo and snippets of her at home available should you decide to listen. Well I thank you for your time and consideration. Prayers to the prosperity of your show :)

    When ever I have a possibility to become a Singer/songwriter which I do for free, by myself at this point, I would love to be mentored by a Country Superstar like Jon Rich would be great! I am from North Carolina

  13. Araceli Gomez

    I’d love a chance to get an audition just like any other person. I have passion in my music. I sing nonstop, in the car, in the shower, at my church, at my school. Music and singing have always been there for me, because it IS me. I know I was born to perform. I get an awesome feeling when I’m in command of any stage. And even though I’ve never had any lessons, I know I can do this! Give me a shot. I can do this and will do this.

  15. Jamii

    Hello, I am from Charlotte NC. I don’t have a list of Concerts or Gigs that I have done, but what I do have is a drive and a passion to sing. I love to inspire and uplift through this gift God has given me. I have been singing since the age of 7. I’ve been interested in music since I was a young girl. I haven’t had too many opportunities since I grew up in a small rural area in WV. My vocals are advanced and mature. I’ve participated in various singing engagements however not one with a National platform. I have what it takes to not only be a sought out singer but performer. Singing is a part of my soul and 1of my passions. I put alot of time and preparation in what I do and I’ve studied and continue to master my craft so that I may sing in excellence and continute to be skillful in what I do. I love it and I know if you choose me, you won’t be disappointed!

  16. Kendall

    Hi I’m Kendall, I’m from Orlando Florida! I have always had a passion for singing ever since I was a little girl. I’m 14 almost 15 years old and I feel like I never have anywhere to showcase my hidden talent. Singing. I love it so much but since my parents both work full time I don’t get to go to auditions and gigs and etc like my friends do. This is why I think ‘The Star Next Door’ would be the perfect show for me. There’s nothing I want more in this world than to become a singing sensation and I really think The Star Next Door would be such an amazing opportunity for me to show my voice. I play the guitar and was in my school talent show in 6th grade and got a standing ovation. It was the first time performing in front of a crowd so large in my hometown and I felt on top of the world. I have also sang at my cousin’s wedding and I have performed at Disney World with my school chorus. My friends and family keep telling me I need to show my talent to the world and I feel ready now. I’ve never had a vocal coach, I’m purely self taught and I would love to go on this journey and this competition show and make my family proud. My brother was involved with drugs and almost overdosed. It was a very rough time for my family and we are so grateful he is sober and better now, but when times were hard and my parents were so upset I would sing for them and it made them feel better. I want to make something of myself and I finally feel I’m ready to show America my voice and love for music. PLEASE consider me for this show. I would feel so blessed and be forever grateful for the experience. :)

    Hello! My name is Donna and I am 29 years old and I would love an opportunity to be considered as The Star Next Door. I am currently a special education teacher and work at school for special needs children and love it. My passion has always been singing. I get the itch out once a year when my friends and I travel out of town and get a karaoke night in (they aren’t ones much for karaoke, so I’ll take it when I can get it). I have sung the National Anthem before local car races when I was in high school but I want so much more. I want to be up on stage belting it out in front of crowds! Thank you for reading and hopefully you will consider me!

  26. Tori Davis

    My name is Tori Davis. I am from Newton Grove, North Carolina. I have been singing for years and show people want potential I have to offer. Every time I song, people tell me that I should get on American Idol or do something involving music. People always tell me that I give them chills and they want to hear more of my singing. I also write my own songs to sing. I feel like if you give me a chance, I’ll surprise you. People have always over looked me and thought i may just be a face in the crowd, but I know that I have a voice and I want to prove to people that I’m more than just a face in the crowd. That I am a girl with a big heart and a huge talent that could change everything and all I need is an answer from you. Thank you for your time and I appreciate it so much. : )

  27. Marcus Womack

    My name is Marcus Womack. I can’t say that I’d be very eligible for this spot, but at this moment I’ve been and is going through soo much financially and mentally. this year has been yet the worst for me . I have nothing left to do but praise God. I’ve been loosing family and friends but yet I sing because I’m happy and I sing because I’m free. this opportunity would mean the world and back to me because I’ve never had a chance to show the world Gods gift to me. ifi do get this chance there wouldnt be enough appreciation

  28. Bonnie

    Hi! My name is Bonnie La Gatta. I am 14 years old. I discovered The Star Next Door while I was looking for open mics and talent shows to perform in. I have been singing for a little over a year. I have been the final show in 3 talent shows and have sang the National Anthem twice at my dance recitals. I have always had a passion for singing, but I was so afraid to let people hear what I sounded like. My dad had died when I was 6 years old, and seeing my mom struggle over the past 8 years trying to give me and my little brother a better life made me realize that life is too short to not follow your dreams. I have been taking singing lessons for almost a year, but my mom just can’t afford it anymore. I have been playing violin for 5 years and have been first chair in my school orchestra. I play some piano and just started to learn the guitar, so you can see how serious I am with music. I know there are thousands of people who want to be able to show off what they can do and I can’t imagine how difficult it must be to choose the lucky ones who get through. But please consider me. I promise you won’t regret it.

  29. Darren

    Hi, I’m Darren’s mom and he would be embarrassed that I am recommending him. However, I know he would think what are the odds he would be selected for something like this. I’m actually using his computer while he is in the studio, so he has no idea. I’m submitting his name. Today. Of course I’m his biggest fan and also biggest critic. I keep it real with him because I know this is a hard industry to get into. He has a great voice, style and music. He has been fortunate to open up for Faith Evans, Eric Benet, Joe and Maze. For the last year his concentration has been finishing school and getting his degree which he completed. He is back in the studio after overcoming challenges and recording music again. No matter what obstacles he encounters, he always returns to his first love of music. I encourage you to take a look at him and decide for yourself. He jus finished an original song in memory of ,and in dedication to his father, whose birthday would have been today.

  31. Bonnie La Gatta

    Hello My name Is Bonnie I was so excited to come across this and would really love a chance to show you my talent,. I know there are going to be so many people wanting to show off their singing talents and can’t imagine how hard it is for you to decide the lucky ones to be chosen. I have always enjoyed singing but was so afraid to let people hear me. After my Dad died a few years ago and watching my mom struggle to give me and my little brother a good life something inside of me woke up and said “life is just way to short to not go for your dreams I have done a few talent shows and sung the National Anthem at my Dance recitals. Ive been playing the violin for 5yrs and was first chair in my school orchestra. I play the keyboard and just started to learn the guitar so you can see I am very serious about the music industry. I have been taking singing lessons for almost a year but my mom can no longer afford them so I am trying to do everything I can to get myself out there and make a better life for my family. I sure hope you can give me a chance and help me make my dream come true. Thank you so much for taking your time out to read this.
