Singer/songwriter Angie Keilhauer has both grit and talent, and is well on her way to making her mark in the music industry. Long before appearing on the most recent season of NBC’s The Voice, Angie was playing in local bars, cruise ships, and pretty much anywhere that she could practice her craft. While she had no idea that one day she would be singing on network television, every moment she spent developing her talent was integral to where she was headed.
Although Angie was rejected by The Voice three times prior to her most recent audition, she caught the attention of three out of the four judges who turned their chairs, and landed a spot on “Team Blake” after an impressive performance of Dierks Bentley’s song, “I Hold On.” Most people would have given up after facing rejection multiple times; but Angie possesses a perseverance and initiative far beyond her years. She has continued to say “yes” to the opportunities that have come her way, and her career is building momentum because of her willingness to do the work.
Angie’s story reminds us that in order to fulfill our dreams, we must be willing to put in the hard work behind the scenes–even when there is no audience or applause. We hope you’ll join us to hear how Angie’s story show us that:
- Sometimes it takes putting everything you have into a dream to make sure it’s what you really want in life.
- We have to be willing to put in the time and resources to develop our talent and network, rather than simply hoping to succeed.
- Overnight success is a myth–the moments that no one sees are what define our story.
- The true recipe for success is talent, hard work, and perseverance–rather that simply talent alone.
