  1. Slipping Away
  2. (blank)
  3. I Won't Blame You
  4. Orange Colored Sky
  5. Should Have Said Goodbye
I was born a curly haired red head in the city of Anderson South Carolina, number 2 of 3 girls. Yes, the "Monkey - In - The - Middle"! I actually earned that title, though(with the exception of throwing...well, you know.)
Since I could barely walk I have been fascinated with my Mother's piano. I will try to locate some photos, but my Parents have pics of me standing on my tippie toes at the age of a little over 12 months, trying my hardest to touch those pearly white keys. My Family is a tight and strong family unit, raised and centered around the morals and standard of the Good Book. I am grateful to them for their persistence in making sure that I stay involved with our Ministry through my teen years. That had to have been tough.
I grew up in Orlando Florida and moved to Georgia when I was 16. Of course I hated to leave my friends, but what killed me the most was leaving the Chorus I had been involved in and had so much fun being a part of.
I am 26 years old, with an extreme passion for songwriting and singing. I can't imagine having any other outlet to unbind the shackles of sorrow and pain of life or to express the awe and inspiration of it.
I just recently auditioned for American Idol Season 7 here in Georgia, but I was rejected. Oh, well. One door shuts, I believe another one will open. Thus, My Music Showcase. Hope everyone enjoys.
Please let me know what you think. I am just a "baby" at all of this so any seasoned veterans, please also extend me advice or kudos.

Way to go Erika. Don't let nothing stop you from achieving your success in life. A. I. does not always select the best talent, there lost, our gain. 5's from me and keep on keeping on. The road to success is always under construction.

Hey you sound really good I guess American Idol don't know what a good voice sounds like cause if they did they would of chose you to have a chance. NEVER GIVE UP! Your music is sweet and if you wrote your music its even sweeter.

Hey Girl you got it going on. Great vocals and great harmony also. That america idol has missed a lot of talent..Its a lot of politics, timing, and luck in the music business. You did a fine job. Keep believing in yourself and the sky is the limit. 5/Rich

I really appreciate the comment. I love the big band song. It's really cool to see someone do a song today that sounds like it's really old. Send me a message if you ever play in the Statesboro area.
