Brooke Angelina Bromley has dreams of becoming a professional musician, and she’ll soon have a chance to see those dreams take shape.
On Saturday, the Ludington 16-year-old will attend an open call audition for NBC’s singing competition show “The Voice” in Chicago.
Brooke is an aspiring singer, songwriter and musician, playing flute, guitar and piano. Recently, she decided music was something she wanted to get serious about and start pursuing in earnest.
“I’ve loved music my whole life, and about a year ago I decided I wanted to do it as a career and started pursuing it,” she said.
The auditions will take place in downtown Chicago, and Bromley said she’s excited and ready for the challenge.
“You go in and you have to wait in a super-super long line, and then there are groups of 10 people who go into a room and each person gets 30 seconds to impress a judge,” Brooke said. “I’m going to be singing ‘Fly Me to the Moon’ and ‘Chasing Pavements’ by Adele.”
She’s worked with a vocal coach, and says she’s looking forward to the experience.
Music is more than just a hobby for Brooke; it’s a way to process feelings and emotions in a healthy way, and that is something she hopes to share with as many teens as possible.
The desire to help others comes from a struggle of her own.
