This song makes me so happy. I played it for my husband and he said that he remembers seeing her down at the Santa Monica Pier. She was singing for the people passing by. Colbie was so delightful that he bought her cd. So I looked up her wiki and this is what I found –
She auditioned for American Idol but was rejected at the pre-audition stage and was unable to sing for the judges. The second time she auditioned for the show, she sang her own original song, “Bubbly“, and was rejected once again. However, Caillat expressed gratitude at the judges’ decision, saying “I was shy. I was nervous. I didn’t look the greatest. I wasn’t ready for it yet. I was glad, when I auditioned, that they said no.”
What a journey! Be encouraged, and have a wonderful Saturday.
