As I am finishing up the karaoke show in Orem at Applebee's, I couldn't help notice that one of the best singers I have ever heard showed up and wanted to sing. Her name is Jenn Blosil and she is one of the most talented individuals I have ever heard. I have been doing karaoke all over the state, and in many cases I have the opportunity to hear some amazing, radical singers. I should mention that I have seen and heard Jenn many times before, but tonight she seemed on fire. She sang a first song with her sister. It was a Demi Lovato song, beautifully displaying her pitch (and her wonderful sister, Chelsea's too), and they took it to a new level with every time I hear them together.
While I had many singers waiting, I had Jenn approach me and asked if there was room. Knowing there was almost nothing, I told her if she stuck around, I would get her on the stage again to perform. She wanted to do a solo, one that would show her true voice. She chose to sing a song that was performed by Destiny's Child, but mostly was a showcase of Beyonce's talent. Jenn got on the stage and I swear to you there was not one person within eyeshot that wasn't fixated on her, not one person within earshot talking. It was as if the world stopped, slowed down, and took a moment out of its' day to listen to the beautiful melodies coming from the vocal chords of this 19 year-old star. She finished the song, and everyone cheered. I sat stunned. I normally say something after singers finish up, but I could not believe how utterly flawless she had sung the song. I was in shock that she is as good as my ears can sense. She is literally one of the greatest I have ever had the opportunity to listen to, ever!
Jenn Blosil is one amazing girl and I would hope that you check out not only her, but her sister also.
_Last night was one of the opening nights at the Owl Bar, located at the Sundance Resort nestled in the Provo Canyon. We have been doing the show there for a while now, but the resort closed down for the Thanksgiving weekend, being that there isn't much snow and people like to be home with family. It started slow, but by the end of the night we had about 30 people having fun and Rocking The Mic, which if you have been to the owl bar you know seems pretty full.
One of our own, Kid Carolina, came up and started singing some of the good old hits: The Rolling Stones, Neil Diamond, stuff like that. Out from the back comes none other than Robert Redford with his wife. He owns the resort and pretty much half the mountain, and can be seen from time to time a around the resort. They came and spoke to Mike and I briefly about his wonderful voice, singing, and the cool DJ program we were using. Both of them were very cordial and pleasant people, the kind of people you could have hour-long conversations without an ounce of effort. It was a good time the rest of the night, and we finished at 1:00 AM !!! That's how the karaoke world goes I guess.
Remember that Wednesday nights is Karaoke Night at the Owl Bar. I should also plug they have poker tournaments on Thursdays starting at 7pm. No money, a point system, but the winner could potentially play in the world series of poker!!!
