AGT Adventure - Touring LA and Getting Ready for our Audition

Hello from Los Angeles!

This morning we practiced “Beyond the Sea”, “One World”, and “I Know That My Redeemer Lives” (just in case we needed a third song) in the hotel for several hours.

We went to the LA Convention Center so that we would know how to get there for our audition on Tuesday and then we went to lunch.

The rest of the day was spent touring Hollywood and celebrating Mom’s birthday! We stopped at several of our favorite stars on The Hollywood Walk of Stars and visited Grauman’s Chinese Theatre and enjoyed looking at all the hand and footprints there.

We even went to the Hollywood Bowl and practiced “Beyond the Sea” and “One World” in that beautiful outdoor amphitheater. We felt a bit like the Von Trapp children in “The Sound of Music” when they practice their songs outside before their big concert. :)

We drove down Sunset Blvd just as the sun was setting and then proceeded to get lost trying to find our way out of Beverly Hills.

Tiffany and Natalie went swimming for a little while when we got back to the hotel. The rest of us ordered pizza and watched the news. We tried to get to bed before midnight so we could get a little bit of rest before our big day. 

Welcome to Hollywood:

We had fun finding different Hollywood Stars (this one is Walt Disney):

Enjoyed seeing the hand/footprints at Grauman's Chinese Theatre:

And performing at the Hollywood Bowl! Our lovely audience of birds and a few squirrels loved us. Teehee:
