Entertainment at District 26-M6 Convention

CJ Newsom

I started singing when I was 3yrs old.  I never had any formal voice training.  My mother helped me from the beginning, teaching me things like breath support and stage presence. 

I was home-schooled much of my early education so I would travel with my parents all over the US.  They would travel in their camper and it always seemed like I would get to sing at where ever I was.  Before long, I was singing in competitions, fairs, and was a regular at the Webster County Opry here in Missouri. When I visited the Grand Ole Opry, I felt just like Patsy Cline did when she entered this cornerstone of Country Music.  She was amazed at all the legends that stood behind the microphone like Hank Williams, Red Foley, and Roy Acuff.  To my amazement, when I visited the Grand Ole Opry Sept 1991, I got to see these great legends like Roy Acuff himself along with Roger Miller, Hank Snow, and Porter Wagoner. 

One of the things I have always loved about Patsy is the passion that she exhibits in her music.  That is one thing that I have tried to incorporate in my singing.  Patsy was special because when she sang, the passion in her music was palpable.  She wasn’t the prettiest or the smartest singer, but she had a passion that could take everyone who heard her to the edge of their seat and put a fire in their heart. Read more about CJ Newsom at this link.
