Hello, I am Raya. I will tell you the story on how I got famous. I am a great singer, so
when I heard about the school talent show, I was sure to perform. As the days got closer,
the worse the butterflies in my stomach got. Finally, the day came. My mom had bought me a
beautiful designer dress. She also got a hair stylist to do my hair. I felt like a movie
star! They called my name, then I hurried on stage. As I was scanning the audience, I saw
that the manager of one of my favorite singers was in the audience. Then, I got even more
worried. After I sang the national anthem, everyone clapped, even the manager! As I was
taking of my make-up backstage, the manger came to me and said I was a fantastic singer.
He gave me his business card he said, "If you are interested call, I will be sure to
answer". I was so surprised! I finally thought about it and gave him a call. He said to
meet me at his office the next day. I asked my mom to drive me there, and she said yes. I
went there and sat down with the manager. He said the people would love me, but I had to
travel a lot. I didn't know if I would like to do that, because I would have to leave my
friends. He said to talk with my parents about it. I called my mom to pick me up. I was
silent on the ride there, because I was still thinking about it. I asked my parents if I
could talk with them. After a long discussion with my parents, they said it was okay. They
also said that on their breaks from school they could live with me on the bus. I was fine
with that. So my parents and me went to his office to sign the contract. We signed it.
Then, he told me I would start when school is out and perform somewhere in the country. I
told my friends. They said they could live with me over the summer at least until school
starts again. When school was out I picked them up from their houses. I went to the
office's garage to go on my tour bus. It was the coolest bus I have ever seen! Me and my
friends went around the country, stopping at amazing sites and buildings.
