the semifinals!!!

dear sweet blog friends,

thank you for persevering with us through this songwriting
contest.

the next voting period ends at 11:00 pm, sunday, june 27th.
they are also limiting the voting time to cycle through each
band a few times, so no more sore fingers.

unfortunately, the other bands are well established with lots
of fans.  since, SUNDAY LANE is new to the scene, she
basically just has family and friends.

as you can deduce, we are really outnumbered now.  sort of
like david and goliath.

BUT, i love a challenge and have the best friends in the
world!!!

if you want to continue to help SUNDAY LANE, click
here, listen to each of the remaining 20 bands for 15 seconds
and vote.  it will only take about 15 minutes.

please let me know if you vote, because i am praying about a
way to show my gratitude.

"for You make me glad by Your deeds, o Lord; i sing for joy
at the works of Your hands.  how great are Your works, o
Lord, how profound Your thoughts."  psalm 92:5

love,
lea

OH MY, this is so exciting, yes? Sort of like the final minutes of an eBay bid war. Pins and needles! I'll head over to vote as soon as I can.

The Lord willing!

Sonja said...

I DID IT! I LISTENED FOR 15 SECONDS TO A TON OF THEM AND FINALLY GOT TO VOTE FOR SUNDAY!!!

SHE'S ALREADY THE WINNER IN MY BOOK!

{Jodie} said...

I voted! And truly, she's the best thing I heard! Such a voice!

Vee said...

This has been a regular endurance test! Glad that Sunday Lane is doing so very well. If it gets down to having to listen to ten bands, I'll put my little finger to action. (I did listen to her song, but I think I told you. I really liked it and it seems metaphoric for this very event.)

I'm off to vote!
Thanks for the sweet comment about my blogs new look. I had to wait my turn for quite a while and my taste was starting to change. I think I would have done it a bit different if I could have started all over.

She is by far the best. I've been sitting here voting for over an hour. My husband is also. Go Sunday Lane. A p.s she was at 9 when i started now she is at 7. We will keep up the vigil.

Mountain Mama said...

I kinda sorta voted. Well, I voted but never got to Sunday Lane's song. Something happened. Not sure what. I will try again tomorrow.

She sounds awesome!

Voted for Sunday! Thankfully my parents are here visiting (i.e. playing with my children nonstop) so I didn't feel guilty about the 15 minutes glued to the compooper.

I just this minute officially coined the term "compooper," by the way. I hope I'm the first to think of it, but I kind of doubt it. Either way, I hope it catches on. Kind of like how people refer to tv as the "boob tube." :)

koralee said...

Oh my ....wishing all the blessings in the world to them. I will try to get over and vote tonight...i am off to pick strawberries right now!!!! Hugs for a great day. xoxoxo

Emily said...

Jenners said...

vivek said...

My name is PJ. said...

Lea, I went over to the site to listen and vote and that site was giving me fits this morning! I'll try again later.

I went back this afternoon and judged all 190 head to head competitions. It was really easy. After you've listened to the songs for 15 seconds one time, they don't require you to listen to them again. Sunday came up about 16 times.

Fingers crossed.

vivek said...

Hi Lea ,

Pleasure all mine ..
I've used all the 190 credits ...
Hope n wishing she will definitely win, Finger crossed.

All the best for her.

take care

Debbie said...

Hi Lea I would love to vote....who do I vote for any one of the songs that I like....I was a little confused....just let me know and you can count on me voting.....

Debbie said...

Ok I did what you said, I even registered and made a comment....best song hand down her voice is awesome! I did not see where I can vote though??

Bonnie Bonsai said...

Dear Emily,

The fact that Sunday came out to the top is a huge blessing per se. I did come to the website directed but it seems I have trouble with the program and my audio is not working. I need to have a headset to be able to listen to it.

I wish Sunday Lane All the best. Great to be blessed with musical gift.

Prayers will be heard. The Lord has His way.

My vote for Sunday will be my Prayers.

Hugs to you.

KarenHarveyCox said...

Just stopped back to say I voted for Sunday. I think I would have voted for her anyway as my favorite song, it is so lovely and so is she.

I checked the standings and she is #6.
