I’m going to perform to 25,000 people in KBS’ K-pop World Festival 2015!!!

After months of waiting and hoping, the big announcement was made on September 22nd and… I’ve been selected to go to Changwon!!!

I’m representing the UK and KBS has changed my song to Taeyeon’s If (만약에). I’ll be flown out for just over a week and perform on October 30th at the massive grand final in Changwon, sharing the stage with well known acts including Ailee, SHINee, 4Minute, AOA, BTS, Red Velvet and VIXX. I can’t believe it and I can’t wait to get there – I’ve been trying to make my dream come true for 10 years and now I will finally be able to perform in Korea, on a bigger stage than I ever dared to dream of. Watch this space for more updates!

If you feel like watching me ramble about my feels, here is the first of the series of vlogs I’m planning to do about the festival 🙂

Vlog 4: KBS, The Voice, EP, K-pop Girl Group auditions!

I’ve had an incredible 6 months! I’ve finally finished re-vocalling my entire EP into English (I originally wrote it all in Japanese) so it’s ready to be mixed and fired off to publishers, record labels, and other spiffing contacts that Darren Martyn has! Good luck to Darren as he finishes up the mixes, I hope we get a great response to the songs! We’ve worked really hard on them and I think they sound awesome! 😀

I posted already about KBS but I speak more in depth here about the experience, the reasons for my song choice etc. I’m also in an audition process for a K-pop girl group. This is the last online round – after this they’re picking people to go to Korea!!! Fingers firmly crossed and hoping that I’m offered a spot! Also waiting to find out if I’ll get a callback from The Voice, and obviously for a final judgement from the KBS judges. So much anticipation!!!

[2015] The Project Begins!

Hi everyone! 🙂

Welcome to my project blog! My name is Becca, and I’m working with multi-platinum selling, award-winning producer and vocalist Darren Martyn, who has written for chart-topping acts across the world including Tinie Tempah in the UK, Super Junior and SHINee in Korea and Crystal Kay, Kat Tun and W-inds in Japan, to list only a few!

We are currently working on 4 songs and hoping to get financial backing to do a full album. I’m co-writing all of the songs which is really exciting, and I’m going to start posting vlogs about the process very soon!

Darren is very talented and his own career is getting even more insane even more right now, so I’m incredibly happy for him, and also endlessly grateful that even with all that going on he is still willing to take a chance on an unsigned act like me because he sees potential! Now we just have to work our butts off so that hopefully, everyone else will be able to see it, too 🙂
