  7. Holly Klosek

    Hi, my name is Holly Klosek and I am from Randolph NJ. I wrote a nice long comment yesterday but somehow it got deleted. I would love a real shot at music because I have had a lot of hardships in my life. I have 2 beautiful children (3 and 1), one of which is always in and out of surgeries in Florida. I stay home with them because my son needs a lot of special care so there isn’t much time for me to pursue a passion of my own. I enjoy every minute I get to spend with them but I feel I need to start pursuing something for myself too. Music is my passion and until a few months ago, I was too shy to even sing in front of my family. While recovering from a surgery of my own, I realized this is what I want to do so I made a video and showed it to some family members. My mom cried and I got great reactions from everybody else so I posted some videos online and I got really positive feedback there too. This led me to take a few vocal lessons which really helped me. This opportunity would change my life for me and my family in so many ways I can’t even explain.

  8. Holly Klosek

    Hello, my name is Holly Klosek and I am from Randolph, NJ. I am 26 and am married with 2 beautiful children(2 year old boy and 1 year old girl). My son has a very rare bone condition in his leg and has had many extensive surgeries where he needs constant care so I stay home with my children. The only doctor in the country that is an expert on his condition is in Florida, so I frequently have to drive my kids back and forth. I would be lying if I said I didn’t love being with them all the time but it does make the budget tight and leaves very little time for me to pursue any of my own dreams. I have always wanted to sing but never even gave it a second thought until I was recovering from a surgery of my own and had some extra time on my hands. I recorded a video and showed it to a couple of family members and I got such amazing feedback, my mom even cried ha. So then I got the courage to post it online and got even more incredible feedback so I started taking a few lessons and practicing a lot. I also play acoustic guitar and the violin. We are planning on moving to Nashville this summer to give this our best shot. Being on this show would be life changing for us to say the least.

  9. azhane barker

    Greetings , my name is Azhane Barker. I’m from Dayton OH and I would love to get the chance to show you my talent and audition for you. Singing has always been a passion for me since I was around 6. I love sharing my music to other people. I create facebook videos of my singing to try to reach out and share my talent with those who love it. I have wonderful family that supports my dream of being a singer and would love to see me make it far. Where I come from it’s very small and not very many chances to get heard. This show would be the most amazing chance for me to actually have my voice heard.

  14. Tammy GRADY

    My Son is C.J Bluzey He is a Singer/ Performer. He went all the way through Hollywood On American Idol in 2011 and 2013. He was shown singing and dancing with Harry Connick Jr performing Stand By me. I didn’t understand why He didn’t make it further. I understand now He has grown 10 ×’s as much since then. I understand God has something greater planned for Him. He since has won a huge competition at the lake of the Ozarks, and helps Co produce shows at the lake He also performs in them as well. The only problem with this area is it is a small town with not much room for growth. He doesn’t even realize how talented He truly is. I believe your show can help Him with that. I hope you come see this raw talent for yourself. You won’t be disappointed. I could send you a video if you would like to hear Him. Thanks Tammy ?

    My name is Selena. I’m 18 tears old and I’m from a small town in Ontario, Canada. I deal with mental illness every day of my life. I have let it control me for so long. I have missed many opportunities because of it. I’ve always wanted to sing for a living. The first song I ever sang was the theme song for Marineland the themepark. I used to perform it for my parents in the living room every time it would come on the tv. I was born to do this. I’m just looking for a chance. I hope you consider me.

    I have always dreamed of being a star. Everyone says I am very talented by it is hard to get heard when you don’t know the right people in the major music industry. I would love for this show to come to Dayton, Ohio. Our state is really talented. Bow Wow, The Ohio Players, Avant, Macy Gray, Lyfe Jennings, John Legend, Roy Rogers, The O’Jays, are all from here and the list goes on. I would love this opportunity to showcase my talents, gain knowledge and have guidance to help me stand out in this profession that I have dedicated my life to.

  42. Kenzie wheeler

    Hi my name is Kenzie wheeler. Iam 17 yrs old and a senior at Strawberry Crest High School. Im from the small town of Plant City Florida, also known for its strawberries and the Strawberry Festival. I have always enjoyed singing and country music. I was 15 yrs old the first time I went on stage in front of a crowd. Since that time I have been working on my singing career and building a fan base. In the past year I had the honor of opening for Michael Ray in Ocala Florida. Micheal even called me up on stage to sing a song with him!! In November of this year I opened for Charlie Daniels Angelus charity event at the Tampa Hardrock. What a great experience! On January 31st 2016 I was named the 1st Tampa Teen Idol! What a great experience that was. I have two original songs on iTunes. “Just once in awhile and “Talk to you”. I believe in giving back to my community so I do charity events when I can. I love singing, being on stage and the feeling I get from that. Iam country music all the way!! Iam ready to take my career to the next level. I can only imagine how awesome it would be to be mentored by John Rich! I hope to be seeing “The Next” in my home town real soon!

  44. Danielle Mathews

    Hey! My name is Dani Grace and I am a 15 year old singer from North Carolina. I should be apart of the Star Next Door because this opportunity for me would be the best thing. I never outgrew the ‘I want to be famous’ stage, and music became a part of me, so it just made me want to go into music. I play guitar as well, and I am a soprano contemporary singer. I want to prove that you don’t have to have voice lessons to get into the music industry, and that you are perfect just the way you are. I was told I wasn’t when I was younger by my peers, and I want The Star Next Door to change my music career!

  47. Summer Zeilman

    My dream has been my whole life to become a singer, or even just be looked at by a professional to help myself improve! I am 25 years old, engaged and a mother of two amazing kiddos! My daughter is 4 and my son is 19 months! I love music and sing a wide range of genres such as, country, r& b, church/soul, and love evanescence. I have let very few people hear me sing and everyone who has heard me has been absolutely shocked that i can sing. I did singing lessons when i was younger and have been in every choir in school and did great in those.

    I would love a shot to be heard and to prove myself to the world with something like this! I have a passion for music and, you can tell when i sing!

    Please help my dreams come true and, help become a great singer!
