“Lucy, you got some splainin’ to do!” Yes, Ricky, I know…
So many of you have asked what happened at IMMERSE 2015 so I thought I would make it official and put it in writing. IMMERSE is music conference in Nashville put on by GMA (the Gospel Music Association) for artists, songwriters, vocalists, and worship leaders. It includes classes from the creative to the business side of things, performances by various artists, is a great way to network, and a show ‘em what you got competition called reVIEWyou.

So, I signed up to attend and entered the competition. My first time to Nashville – WooHoo! There were 3 categories to enter: songwriter, artist/writer, and vocalist. I entered a song in the artist/writer and vocalist categories. Turns out I cut the mustard and made it into the live competition. So, on Sunday, June 14, Paul and I jumped in the car and drove down to Music City.

There were about 400 other people who also cut the mustard. Everyday, from 1pm – 6pm, the competitions in the 3 categories went on. Each performance was critiqued and my song went through some minor revisions. Fortunately, I kept getting promoted, so-to-speak, to the next level and stayed in the competition until it was whittled down to the top 3 in each category. Unfortunately, this meant I missed out on most of the classes and speakers (but I will receive the recordings). The final performance was on Wednesday night, June 17th before twenty professionals in the music industry. Believe me, I never thought I would make it through to this level as the competition was fierce.
The final winner in my category (artist/writer) was the lovely Roslyn Welch who played a cajon. She was the very first person I met and we became immediate friends.

All-in-all it was a great experience for me and I am truly thankful for it. Feel enormously blessed and more at peace. I don’t know if or when I will ever lose the desire to sing, but for now that desire it is still with me and I keep listening to what God might have to say next. I’m all ears.

My heartfelt and deep thank you to everyone was pulling for me! Your FB messages were tremendous!

Oh ya, one more thing, the title of my song is “A Cross on a Hill”.
