Once upon a time, baby Repcor made up a little song called “Uno Dos Tres” and sang it to her preschool class. At 9-years-old, she wrote a song about friendship (originally meant to be submitted to a Ghostwriter TV show competition) and taught it to 45 third-graders. Later that year, the kids performed it at an assembly for the entire elementary school.
In high school (during her fabulous, angsty-teen years), she wrote a song called “My Time,” got it recorded at her friend’s homemade recording studio, “mass-produced” a bunch of copies and sold three dozen or so to her friends. Right before graduation, she composed a piano piece called “II” and performed it for her school. She started college wanting to write movie scores.
Growing up, I was absolutely one of those stereotypical little girls who craved fame. I did every silly talent show. I was in every singing group. However, as an adult… the possibility of making any kind of living truly doing something musical remained an unfulfilled and seemingly unrealistic dream.
Well. Guess what?
The kind folks at HubSpot seem to think I might still have it in me, and they’ve asked if I would think up some creative songs for them. The plan is to make some funny “music videos” (if you will) about social media… the Internet… and whatever else we think up. I mean, come on! How cool is that?
I never thought I’d ever be given such a project. But you know? It’s pretty perfect, and I am absolutely pumped. I hate being cheesy. (Really I do.) But… this is a bit dream-come-true. Perhaps the beginning of something big!
Now, I just have to deliver! :)
So stick around, friends. Let’s see how this goes.
