Kevin, I have no way to record myself.
Sarah has last year's talent show online, for all to hear.
I'm planning on performing, this year.
If someone has already performed, before, and the performance is on
tape, then that tape should be used for auditions.
New people, (first timers,) (on the other hand,) might need to have
recordings, for the auditions.
Please read my thread, where I've listed a recap of last year's show,
and some suggestions, for the future.
Blessings, Joshua
