View Full Version : Music is my anchor

So half of my username is because it's my FAVORITE Christina Aguilera song.. But another half of it is because my Voice is really all I've ever had in my world to keep me strong.

Since I was two years old, I've been singing. It all started from walking to tables singing to random customers or walking down the plane aisle singing Barney. I finally had my first performance at 8 years old singing "What I've Been Looking For". After a big applause and everyone singing along, I inspired to go in more directions with it. I've done plenty of performances and always had that same reaction.

After years of struggle with countless amounts of therapy for Autism, Bipolar, and Anxiety.. After plenty of people not understanding my differences.. After many people leaving once they realized... After bullies pushing me down stairs..

Music is the one thing that always anchored me down..

After how much I've probably dealt with.. I can say singing in a crowd of five people or just popping headphones in will always make me think brighter and happier.


Today I got to hear myself actually sing a cover, without cameras with crappy audio and with professional equipment for the first time. I probably had the brightest smile on my face after it was done. I couldn't believe what I heard. :)

This was that cover..

I always sometimes lie down and listen to music when I want to relax/cool down and I can imagine this soon becoming one of those XD It's an amazing voice :D It's wonderful to be going for a career in the industry of what always calms you down, instead of me with something you didn't like in the first place and is now causing you more mental problems :whoops: I like singing to myself a lot but would never imagine things getting that far for me, my voice is way too strange but I learn the tunes to songs too quickly :D

This is so true, and wow. You have a beautiful voice, Madie :) I've never gotten to record on professional equipment. I'm so jealous. How'd you get the opportunity?

It's just wonderful how helpful music can be. Once again I had a lot of random things I'd done over Easter and no proper way to put them together, until I was asked a question of what I want my final outcome to be (I said I want a big wall piece with words going across it) and I immediately thought of "The Monster" to go with the theme of my previous work :D so I now have "I'm friends with the monster that's under my bed" on the drafts for my work. I just have to plan how I'm going to portray that message while it's on the picture now but it'll be a lot easier soon :)

Music is the best invention out there and it's helped me with so many things. This is why I'm glad you will hopefully soon be able to produce it :metal:

Thank you! Well my mom's friend does screamo/hard metal music with his friends. So he got really expensive equipment and let me use it. It was pretty awesome! :)


You're so good at singing and you have a nice voice!


Thank you!

It definetely is an amazing invention. It's helped loads of people emotionally and career wise.

I hope to produce it soon as well! I really want to put myself out there to have a succesful, non boring career. :)

Madie. That was so beautiful and lovely voice. Music as always been there for me and held me together when things were falling apart. I can't sing a damn or even carry a toon. But music when listening to it always brought me back up again..And you song has inspired me to feel good again. THANKS FOR MAKING MY DAY.
