    I think Rising Star is a great show for new competition because it gives people the opportunity to shine on different levels and go for their dreams. I think I would be a good addition to the show because I am stepping out of my element and doing something I have always wanted to give a try. Hopefully, that will be fulfilled, however, if not, I can at least say I tried and mark it off of my bucket list.

  13. Sariah Johnson

    Hi there. I am Sariah Johnson. I am 13 years old and turning 14 on December 4th. I have been singing as long as I can remember. I have taken some single classes and some group ones as well. I have performed in many different shows where I have had to sing. I like to think I have a powerful voice and one that gives people the chills. One time, I sung for my schools dean, assistant principal and principal as well as my music teacher. I was practicing for my audition to the school PPAS which is one of the top performing arts school in New York City. They all said that I gave them the chills when I sang. Two of them even started to cry. I like to play guitar and write my own songs thought to be honest I am still working on that. Some of my favorite songs to sing are
    – And I Am Telling You I am Not Going
    – Don’t Rain on My Parade
    – Titanium
    – Wizard and I
    – Defying Gravity
    – Take me or Leave me
    – Almost There
    – Flashlight
    – Don’t Stop Believing
    – You and I (I just had to put this in here.)
    – Riptide
    – I’m Yours
    – House of Gold
    – I Want It All
    – Bohemian Rhapsody
    – Somebody to Love

    And so many others but I can’t put them all down. I really hope that someone will see this and all goes well. When people ask me “What is your goal in life?” I answer to them “To make people happy.” I believe that by singing or performing can make people happy and I need to make people happy.

    If you are reading this then thank you.

  15. Selina Mai

    Hi! my name is Selina and I’m 13 as of 2015, and I live in Toronto, Canada. I am verry verry interested and excited about this. I love singing, I’ve been singing almost my whole life. I’ve performed in public a few times when I was young and always wanted to sing in public events but I could never find any. I’ve always wanted to go to something like this but the auditions were never close to were I live, and if they were, it was only for a restricted age group. So after I saw that this show was a globle show and was for anyone. I thought that this would be a perfect opportunity. Thank you! And please email me.

  16. Tim

    Hi. My name is Tim. I’m 34, a father of 2, and an aspiring R&B singer. I have auditioned in the past for American Idol (twice) and The Voice, only to miss out by a grain of sand. From the places I go, to the people I sing to and for, I have always been complimented on my vocal talent. Everyone always asks why I’m not signed. That is a great question! I would LOVE the opportunity to finally fulfill ALL my dreams and goals and give my children the life they deserve by entering to be a contestant on Rising Star. Thank you for your time.

  18. noelie leathers

    hi I’m Noelie Leathers and I am from Biloxi,Mississippi and I have been singing since the age of 5 and I am in my church’s choir and I sing for my friends sometimes and I sing anywhere I can to practice. I turned 13 may 29th and music has just been part of me all my life. I actually used to play flute and the euphonium in school but I never sang for the school because I was scared I was going to mess up and get laughed at so I practice the national anthem everyday. The song that I sing the most would be “jar of hearts” by Christina Perri. I have always wanted to actually sing for people on television. I also wanted to make my mother proud from where she is up in heaven watching over me and ever since she died I’ve been singing more often. Though she did die 4 years ago on April 6, 2011.

  19. ciera keith

    hello! im ciera! im 13 and ill be 14 in September ive been told that im a very interesting out going girl with a very good voice but I would really like to see how the judges and the rest of America thinks. Of course it would be nice to be famous and have all the glam and fortune but before all that what really matters the most is allowing people to hear my voice and sharing this amazing gift I have. I live in ohio so theres not as much opportunities to show the world the best I can be and get myself out there than there is for a singer in New York or California. I think that with faith hope and the opportunity I have the passion commitment and potential to be the next rising star!

  22. Brittiana Moore

    Hi, my name is Brittiana. I know you’re probably like “how the heck do you pronounce that lol?!” However, don’t be alarmed because I go by the nickname Britt. I am 15 years old and I am from Raleigh, North Carolina. I have a passion for acting and an even greater passion for singing. After doing school plays and participating in talent shows I realized that this is what I want to do. I don’t want this just to have a chance to be on TV or to be famous, I want to share something that I love with the world. I believe that dreams do come true if you have the courage to pursue them. I believe that I have what it takes to be successful at what I love. I have great confidence and pride in this. I have such a great sense of humor and I love to laugh. I love to perform and I also dance a little. In my free time, I’m either singing, netflixing, or cooking/eating. My inspirations are Zendaya, Shawn Mendes, McClain, and many other actors/actresses/artists because they persuade us to follow our dreams no matter how big they are.

    I was born in Baghdad Iraq came here at the age of 9 years old as a refugees.
    My story is extensive and too deep to write a essay about it.
    I’m being discriminated Not by being from Iraq but Being 50 years of ang with a gifted vocal talent that seem to be swept uynder the rug with all these talent show that go for young talents.
    The strage thing is I don’t look a day over 35 years of age.

  73. Alayna Scordato

    Hi there! I don’t even know if this is being read but it’s worth a shot. My name is Alayna Scordato. I am a teenage girl currently at the age of 17 (18 in a few weeks) in the always sunny Tucson, Arizona (a little too sunny if you ask me). Music is my passion in life. Every moment alone I find myself singing songs from disney to Marty Robbins, and when I’m not alone i find myself mouthing the words and miming the piano chords on my school desk. With college looming in the distance and everyone else around me moving on with their lives I find myself wondering whats going to happen to me. Singing is all I am and all I want to do but living in Tucson and coming from a family of restaurant owners my opportunities are slim, and by slim I mean non existent. Not to mention money is scarce and without a sure thing I cant go anywhere to search for opportunities. Ever since I was little I’ve watched TV shows like American Idol or Americas got Talent and thought “I could do that!” but I never got the chance to put my money where my mouth was. It’s my turn to go out there and take a chance and this would be that moment for me. To sing the rest of my life out in the world rather then the confines of my room would be a dream come true for me.
    Thank you so much for reading this and I hope you will consider me and my ramblings for Rising Star.
    Alayna Scordato (sorry for the length)
