RECORDING!!!!!! || Part One

So guys...some of you may know this, but some of you may not. I've been taking some voice lessons, since this summer, and my WONDERFUL voice teacher JP, wanted me to record my singing. And the recording process has begun!! We are 3/4 of the way done with the first song!!
The song we are recording a cover of right now is "He Wants It All," sung by the family group Forever Jones. Its so cool to have this opportunity, I feel like some of the craziest things happen to me. I'm "in the studio", something I never imagined myself saying.

 Another thing that is weird is hearing myself on the recording. Coming through that microphone my voice sounded much clearer than I think it does in real life, which was funny. Its odd how when speaking and singing we sound different in our heads than we do, outside of our heads. In my head, I don't hear just how different I sound, but on the recording I couldn't hardly believe it was me. :-P Its something I'll have to get used to. 
I am so curious as to how God will use my singing in the future. I know He's already taking something I viewed as a curse, and He's turning it into a blessing. Maybe I don't completely see it as a blessing yet, but I'm getting there. I've got a lot of stuff to work through still, but I'm so thankful to be singing at all. Its so freeing to be able to just open your mouth and let it flow, it feels so good to be able to praise the Lord with song :-)  Thank you Jesus :-) 
I took a few horrible quality pics on my phone, but due to the er, quality of my phone I can't upload them. Next week I'll bring my camera because a recording studio is pretty cool looking. So stay tuned. Also, if you ever want to know what auto tune sounds like its hilarious and gross. If you sing off pitch it bounces it down which ruins the word and makes it sound super funny. We didnt use it on the actual recording :-) 
I guess this is all for part one, part two will be pictures and part three will be the MP3.  Any questions about how recording is done? I hope y'all are having a great week so far! We are taking a day trip to Blowing Rock today, and I plan on taking a lot of pictures!! ♥♥♥
Oh, and for your enjoyment, random fuzzy picture of my breakfast/lunch/dinner yesterday. I had a crazy day! :-P
