Now, if you know me, then you know how I feel about Kanye West. Hands down, he’s my favorite artist. The only artist in which I have every one of his albums. Fuck what you heard, Kanye is the shit. Period. And he can do no wrong in my eyes (sue me) I promise you, since I heard Power and Power RMX, I listen to them every day. Those 2 songs ( along with some Tye Tribett, Donald Lawrence and Rick Ross) get me through my rough days. (yes I have rough days too, i think they come along ever so often just to remind me that I am in fact human)
So when I found out that I was auditioning for Kanye West, I thought it was a hoax.
Then… Kanye walks in the audition. God help me.
All 130 of us girls, danced for our lives. Every trick in the book, every move we ever learned, every bit… was left on the dance floor. 130 dropped to 45. Then the waiting….and more waiting…. When I got the news, that me, Shernita Q. Anderson aka Shernitasofly.. would be dancing with Kanye West for an audience of approximately 12 million people, I was speechless. Words could not describe it. And on top of that, this is the first performance my entire family was able to watch.
The next few days would be full of pointed toes, last minute changes and smiles. We got a small glimpse into the world of a misunderstood genius. Honestly, not just because he’s an inspiration to me but Kanye is amazing, genuine and yes, he IS a nice guy. He’s a visionary…very involved in all aspects of his brand and he’s funny. Very funny actually.
Never in a million years would I dream that not only would I be performing with one of my biggest inspirations, but I’d get the chance to actually get to know him a little bit. And I’m thankful to live in an age where thanks to technology, I am etched in history.. forever.
Here are the links…Im pretty obvious to see but just in case.. Im the only chocolate bald girl lol In Power, Im always on your left and in Runaway.. Im center.
Never Give Up…Your mind can’t even fathom what the Universe has in store for you. Hold tight…its coming….
