      On singing the national anthem:

      My town has a collegiate summer baseball team, and I started singing the
      national anthem at their games this past summer. Basically, the best thing
      to do is to talk to an employee of the arena/stadium/whatever, find out who
      is in charge of coordinating events, and talk directly to him or her. They
      will probably not ask you to sing on the spot, but they MAY ask you to
      submit a tape of you singing as sort of an audition, before they decide to
      let you sing or not.

        ~~~~~ You create a press kit and distribute it to all the publishing
        companies. You then start calling each one to get their response to
        your kit (unless you're lucjky and they call you first). You can
        also hire a manager to do all of this.

        > Also, could a publishing company pitch not only songs, but a singer
        > also, to a label?

        ~~~~~ Sure. A manager could also promote the singer to recording
        companies.

        > Like you know how they say, "Hey this song would be good for so-and-
        > so...", do they also say "This person is signed as a writer, they
        > sing too, give it a listen" if the writer also performs and wants
        > to record his/her own songs?

        ~~~~~ Good script. It's a lot easier for a manager to speak it to
        the A&R departments than the artist. It's sorta like an endorsement.
        If the artist says it, some persons think the artist is "just blowing
        wind". Serious artists hire a manager.

        ~~~~~ Have your manager/booking agent contact them.

        If you let me hear your sing the National Anthem, I'll tell you what
        I can do to help.

        I recommend that you change ImTalentdSoSueMe to a handle that creates
        a more positive image for you. So Sue Me projects trouble to the
        very persons that may be willing to help you.

          So basically, only a manager would really pitch an artist to a label, not
          the publishing company? B/c that's what I was wondering LOL

          << Have your manager/booking agent contact them. >>

          But I don't have one yet LOL!

          << If you let me hear your sing the National Anthem, I'll tell you what

          Thanks so much! I'll try to record it sometime next week, when I get a new
          mic.

          Oh I don't use this address for anything but mailing list e-mail! It's
          easier to check than web-based mail, when I get as many letters as I do.
          Whenever I'm dealing with someone who may help out my career, I use one of my
          other addresses. =)

          Thanks for the advice! =)
