Although it was only for a breif moment, I finalllly got to sing this week! I'll assume/hope that by now you get somewhat of an idea of how much I care about singing. My voice teacher interviews were quite interesting...not gonna lie! Each candidate I interviewed definitely had their own strengths, however were not exactly what I was ideally looking for.
After a long time of searching, I found Badiene- and you can tell how nervous I was as soon as I realized she was who I wanted to be my teacher! I admit I am quite fidgety, and Badiene recognized my constant hair pulling and nail biting as nervous habits. Overall, that day was a great experience, especially with the cameras present. You didn't see how involved my parents were in terms of my safety as I was meeting/ interviewing strangers, but please remember there was an entire camera crew with me during each interview! I was not alone; my parents were there through everything. My mother and father have both met with and spoke to Badiene countless times- my dad never misses a lesson!
I was so excited for everyone to finally hear me sing. The greatest feeling for me is after finishing a song and I hope that you've enjoyed what you have heard so far- there just may be more to come...
I think you are a real sweet girl who doesnt seem to be caught up in the superficial thing that some of the people are. Like PC who is arrogant, and superficial. Jessie who is very snobby and arrogant as well. You have a beautiful voice and I was a bit shocked when I heard your range of notes on the last show that I watched. You have alot going for yourself and will go a long way. You can do better than Sebastian too!!! Look somewhere else for a boyfriend, as he will break your heart.
Hey, Sorry bout you're puppy. Don't waist your time with Sebastian. Although, He is HOT!!! and I love his name but he's a player, but at least he's honest about it. I guess that's what you do when you're young to weed out the thorns. It makes it easier to find "THE ONE". God gave you that beautiful voice, so good luck with your career. Vickie
You sing beautifully and I admire you for pursuing your singing career dream. It may very well turn into reality in the future for you. I wish you the best.
Don't take PC so seriously. The guy is very immature and suffers from an over inflated ego. This is clearly a sign of low self-esteem, I've seen it hundreds of times in other people who build themselves up by putting others down.
Kelli, You are very talented with your voice. I love to sing also and hopefully I will find a great teacher too. You are much more mature than anyone else on the show from what I have seen. I am pretty shocked that your parents let you and your brother live on your own. I am a sophomore and I can't imagine living on my own like you do. You are so pretty and you have great fashion sense too! Good luck with your singing lessons. :)
Where did you get that lovely, colorful dress. It was blue with different colors. Where can I obtain that beautiful dress? Plese let me know.
I just want to let you know that you should always follow your dreams and not let others put you down. People like PC & what ever his (girl) friends name is are so unhappy with their own lives that they feel like they have to put others down. I think that it's interesting that those that have issues with their own lives try to take it out on others. It's true that he's not that much older than you ...as a matter of fact, he's the same age as you. Anyway, the point it is...don't worry about him saying that you're immature. The truth is that you should enjoy and embrace the age that you are because it will never come back. At the end the one who'll be sorry is him since he didn't enjoy his teenage years. So, don't try to prove that your mature or what ever it is that he wants you to prove. There's nothing wrong with looking young or being a virgin. You have plenty of time to look "old" and have sex. Have fun and enjoy the age that you are now because believe me, it will never come back again. Don't let assholes and jealous people put you down. Hold your head up high, be yourself, and continue your singing career. Much luck to you!!!!
Hah! I have the same name, and it's spelled with an i!! Finally, someone who realizes how many times my name is spelt wrong!
I just wanted to let you know that I love NYC Prep; I would never miss an episode.
I have to be honest with you- when I first heard that you wanted to be a singer, I scoffed and thought "Yeah, right. Like she's gonna be a singer." Then I heard your voice and thought you were amazing. I would definetly buy your album, if and when it comes out!!
I want you to know that you are an amazing singer, and whatever PC tells you about having a bat mitzvah, or playing in the sandbox, don't let him bring you down. Forget about him, and think of the people that love you.
Keep up the good work with your singing. stay away from sabestian. He will bring you down.... good work, keep the faith.
Wow I would love to learn to sing. You picked a GReat teacher!! She seemed really cool and good. Would LOVE to learn to sing. With all the singing shows.... they should have a "Make me sing" show. I can't afford lessons and would love to see a show like that. Must be neat the travels of espiring singers. That teacher was so pretty and cool!!! Bet she coould get me to sing!
Hello, I would just like to say that you are probably the nicest one out of all of the NYC Prep's. Don't be taken back or even insulted at all by PC's dumb remarks. He's not worth the drama, nor is Sabashian. You are a great singer by the way.. I think the show will deffenitly further your career if you choose to persue singing. Good luck with all the drama and your singing!
Kelli, You are a GEORGEOUS girl! So, is your voice but, at the same time you seem so genuine and seem to be a true friend! Keep it that way! :)
Kelli, Where did you get your boots?! I'm a boot fanatic and LOVE those wedged, wintery, fury boots! So cute! Let me know girl!
I just gotta say Kelli, you are "too cool for school" no doubt. I was tripping out when you stood up to PC. That was stellar! Your def my favorite on the show. Good luck with your singing career!
your my idol ! you have such a good head on your shoulders ! and you have a great voice :) and you deserve better than sebastian !! good luck with everything :)
I thought your singing was really good on the last episode. But watching this week I agree with you. I honestly think if one of you (yourself or PC) is more mature than the other you would definitly be that one. I thought you had a great point of view when you two were talking at the outskirts of fashion week. He was being a jerk to you then and at Camielle's dinner party. I think you are very mature and that there is no difference between ages of 1-2 years. PC just needs to grow up and realize what he is saying before he say's things.
Cassidy; A viewer of the show!
You have a very nice voice, but the scene with that man, you were really off key several times. Just constructive criticism. I really love the way you stood up to P.C. I can't stand that guy.
I am so happy for you! You are really pursuing your dreams and you do have talent so I wish you the best! I applaud you for not giving in to Sebastian. You should be 1st pick. About PC, I think he has some issues that he hasn't yet dealt with in therapy that prevent him from truly appolizing to you. I think PC is in a transitional stage in his life where he is trying to find himself and he is confused, so he lashes out at people. I have a soft spot for PC, but I also know that you are just as, if not more mature as PC.
Kelly, I think you were great when you stood up to P.C. after the fashion show....Way to go girl! Bravo! P.C.'s jaw dropped.... I loved it....He thought you were going to be a push over and coming begging for his friendship....NOT!
Thank you for putting P.C. in his place!
His desperate attempts to prove how "mature" he is just shows how emotionally immature he really is. He obviously gets some perverted pleasure in cutting people down. He's a brat who can't be reasoned with and needs some serious mental help.
Gorgeous voice btw :)
You gave PC a taste of his own medicine, he won't live it down girl. Even though apologies are to be accepted I think we can all agree that PC needed the tongue lashing.
You really do have a great voice, and I can't wait to see your new image, but I hope it's not much different from the way you are right now. In another thought I had. I think Sebastian should watch out before there's a remake of John Tucker Must Die. It'll be Sebastian Must Die starring you and Taylor haha. That boy better watch out and I'm glad that you turned him down, smartest move made on this show thus far! Kudos!
Kelli, you are awesome. I think you are the cutest girl in the show with the best style.I absolutely loved you convo with PC. He was truly acting like a chick. Kudos to you for standing up to him and calling him out on his immature behavior. I was relieved wen it came about the he was bi(we know thats a cool way to say gay,lol) Your voice is beautiful. Good luck
Kelli I absolutely love your style & it is my new inspiration. You seem like a tough chick who doesn't take crap from anyone, especially PC, the child himself. Also, I think you have a great voice & anyone would be stupid not to sign you for a record label.
kelli, what a fantastic choice of your voice teacher. she seems great! can me you give me some additional information on her? keep it up.
kelli.your voice teacher looks like a fantastic teacher. maybe bravo can show some more time in the shows with her? kelli and her voice teacher, keep up the great work!
Oh my gosh! Who was that wonderfully skilled voice teacher that taught you, again? Didn't catch her name. It would be my dream to do singing, but my parents can't exactly afford lessons for me. She should have her own show! Does she have a website? Great show, I love it!
That is MY voice teacher Badiene ! She is FABULOUS! I cannot get over her blissful voice. I want to see more of her on this show! both Kelli and Badiene! Much love! Greatest show ever!!
Kelli, well at first when you said you wanted to pursue singing i thought okay it just gonna one of those girls you hear everyday nothing special, but when you got that one minute in the show to sing i thought you were really good you have a very strong voice and i hope you do well in the future. Best Wishes. Sincerly,
Lovely voice! Kudos. To be honest, I was hoping you'd be tone deaf - much llike Kim in the Real Housewives of Atlanta. But, you are very talented. Good luck with the career.
So loved the way you didnt accept Sebatian's offer to be the booby prize. However, Sebastian seems to be a pretty decent guy and would be fun to hang with. As a friend.
Your Voice teacher Badiene is my daughter's vocal coach as well! She goes to her south jersey studio in Cherry Hill. Since I am originally from New York, I feel like we have made the most excellent choice of coaches we could have. We immediately could tell she would put my daughter through her paces and not let up. Listen carefully to her, she is truly on top of how to make you look and sound great. I wish they showed more of what you two are doing together, maybe they will add some clips to this site. As far as sebastian goes, you may need to train that boy, he is truly clueless and uncomprehending of how to talk to girls, cute gets you a date, considerate gets you a decent girlfriend! You seem savvy about his shortcomings, be his friend and teach him the ways!
Why r u friends with Camille? Is she as 'friendly' t u as the show protrays? I think Taylor is nicer!!
HI! your the most down to earth person on this show! stay the way u are and plus you really did sound great! ps. the one episode when you were talking about PC and you said "just because he says Darling doesnt make him mature" that was the funniest thing i heard i was LMAO when u said that !
Kelli, No offense or anything but i kinda wasnt so sure about your voice in some of the earlier episodes. i was like, "well, can we hear her sing? Is she good?" So finally i got to hear u sing. Wow! u rock! i would luv luv luv to hear u sing again!
Good luck on ur singing career! :)
I really think you may want to focus on college. While you have a nice "average" normal person voice, its certainly not good enough for you to make it in the music industry. Best of luck to you!
