Hi everyone! I did a cover video to show my appreciation for BTS! I want to celebrate how much they have been achieving! I chose "MIC Drop" because it highlights the rap line more than any of the other newest choreography (which is fine! I mean absolutely nothing by that in a bad way! Gotta take turns between vocals and rap!)
The rap line particularly inspires me to do what I am right now. I moved to go to school for music production and pursue a career as a performer. I'll be working to improve my dancing, rapping, and even singing while studying recording engineering and production.
I moved states away from the small town I lived in for 19 years of my life, and this career won't allow me to move back to that small town. I can move back to Minnesota, but not my hometown.
2 years ago I wouldn't have dreamt that I'd be doing this.
B.A.P, BTS, and UNIQ have all played a part in this. They gave me the courage to change my path to one I've always wanted, but wasn't brave enough to venture down.
Especially Rap Monster. He is one of the people I look up to most. He's second only to Yongguk (but no one can top Yongguk as my biggest inspiration. That rank is unchanging.)
Rap Monster is more than just my bias. He's one of the people that pushed me to keep going, even though he has no idea he did.
So uh, yeah, about the cover video. MIC Drop had very little choreography so I had to freestyle with the majority of the raps. It may not seem difficult, but moving and rap hand dancing (I guess that's what to call it) isn't that easy to get it to look natural. Luckily it was just lip syncing though.
I did my best to emulate the movement styles and attitudes of each rapper. Hopefully I achieved that. So far it seems Suga is the most popular with small, precise movements, but I had the most fun having the big in your face attitude for Rapmon. J-Hope danced so I did the silly moves as close as I could get to that energy.
And I reached 59 views in the first day! On IG I got asked to help promote an Indonesian up and coming musician. We'll cross promote. I'll post a video of me dancing to his song, he reposts it on his page. Talk about global networking! I also got a comment from a Korean actor/model saying to keep fighting every day. I'm also being followed now by a famous grammy-winning American producer who liked several of the clips I posted and responded to my thank you message! He's worked with Ariana Grande and Chris Brown. Platinum hits. Whaaaaat....just so much happened in a day....
So basically another gigantic thank you to BTS! And a thank you to those that are cheering me on and supporting me! It means more to me than you know!
