Hi, I'm Danielle, but I prefer to be called Dani I really enjoy singing. I have been doing it since as long as I can remember. (since I was knee high to a grasshopper lol) Music is def. a big thing in my family. I got the talent from my dad and his mom, my grandma. My dad has his own local country band that he started over 16 yrs. ago. Locally he is one of the most popular country singers in Central NY. I am very proud of my dad and very lucky to have been born with such an amazing gift. When I was younger I used to perform all the time, whether it was at family get togethers, for my friends, school concerts, with my dad and I have even been in a couple of singing competitions. One time I made it to the semi-finals. It was the best feeling in the world. As much as I enjoy performing, this site is prolly the closest thing I will ever come, to becoming famous, and that's okay because I don't think I could handle the fame life lol. Let me rephrase that, I'm sure I could handle it, but that is not the type of life I want.
Most of my friends and a majority of the people I knew growing up would always ask me, "how come you're not on American Idol?" or "why have you never gone and tried to pursue your singing?" Well unfortunately, I became very rebellious as I got older and went down paths that I should not have. I strayed away from what I loved to do the most, for what I thought at the time, was "in love" and the day after my 17th b-day, I became a mom to an adorable and handsome baby boy (who turned 13! on 11/15/13). So, today I have two amazing boys, my youngest will be 8 in march. I am with someone that I actually am "in love" with. Even though we have had our ups and downs and broke up a couple of times, I wouldn't trade these past 10 yrs (off and on) for anyone else. My boys are number one in my life, but he is right up there at the top of the list right under them.
Anyway, I am a really good person, very outgoing, I can be a biotch when I want to be, but I think we all can be at one point or another lol. I am def. the kind of person that people like to consider calling their bestfriend. I don't backstab people or judge anyone. In my eyes, everyone should be treated equally. It doesn't matter what you look like, your race, your sexual preference, or anything for that matter. Honestly and bluntly, If you treat me with respect, I will treat you the same way. I like meeting new people, especially from all over the world. I like to make people laugh because laughter is one of the best emotions ever .
All in all, I am really glad that I came across this site. I have met some really amazing, nice and talented people and in a way, I feel at home on this site. Lol I know that may sound a little weird, but what I mean is that I am around people that enjoy doing the same thing that I do. I can sing and record whatever I want to and also listen to others that are just as passionate as I am about singing. It's nice. Well, I think that I will conclude for now, since I have pretty much wrote you all a novel and told you my whole life story, lmao (not really, because if I did that, it really would be a novel and I would prolly be here writing for the next 20 yrs. hahaha). No, in all seriousness though, I really hope that all of you who come and listen to me sing, enjoy/like what you hear, maybe be-bop your heads once in awhile, laugh at some now and then (in a good way lmao) and just have fun.
I am not a competitve person when it comes to singing. I am okay with criticism and sometimes it is nice to get it because I don't expect everyone in the world to like my singing and any feedback, to me, is good feedback. I'm sorry if I have bored you all to death now . If there is anything else that you would like to know about me, as long as it's appropriate lol, ask away and I might not hesitate to answer you. XD Take care and I look forward to hopefully making some new friends and maybe even some fans along the way lol. Dani
P.S. If you would like to check out any of the contest banners/awards that I have won, you can check them out in my gallery!
The songs that I have here on my profile are duets that I did with a friend that I met here on SS, Mike. I am glad that I got to sing with him.
