How To Get Kicked Out of An Empire Audition

I’ve got to start this post off by saying

1. RULES are RULES FOR A REASON! If you intend to BREAK THEM, be prepared TO LIVE WITH and be ok with the CONSEQUENCES.

2. DON’T TAKE YOURSELF SO SERIOUSLY ALLLLLLL THE TIIIIMMMEEE! Its OK to have fun and be silly once in a while……BALANCE.

Over the years I’ve been told that my playing style on the violin sounds closer to someone singing than, an instrument. So I attempted to make my case to the hit TV SHOW “Empire” during an audition, in a clearly stated “Vocal Only, No Instrument Accompaniment Audition”. ( I do sing by the way lol... but in this game, rules are made to be broken, and why do what everyone else is gonna do, if I have a unique gift? anyway…whatever.) It has been forever and a day since I’ve heard a NO from what I do lol, and what it BLESSED me with, was one of the most MEMORABLE, HILARIOUS, 10 SECONDS of my life, and the inspiration to create this COMEDY SHORT on the whole thing!!! (Slightly exaggerated lmao)
