Default I wanna be a broadway singer but my parents won't support me.

According to my grandmother, when I was three years old, I started singing broadway songs which Iíve always heard and seen on TV. She was the one who took care of me while my parents were away for work. Sheís a good singer too and she loves broadway as much as I love it. When I was seven, we used to sing disney and broadway songs together. Because of her, I wanted to pursue my dream of becoming a broadway singer.

While I was growing up, my grandma loved to audition me on singing contests and all throughout, she was there to support me. When I turned seventeen, she died in a natural death. Despite that, I didnít give up on our broadway dream. But my parents didnít want it for me because they think it wonít do me any good. They just want me to focus more on realistic stuff, like working at a foreign company in town. It saddened me so much that they think that way. Is dreaming to experience a broadway singing not realistic at all?

Get a day job to make some cash and keep your parents happy, whilst practicing and auditioning in your free time.

Next!

You'll only know once you start taking the steps to actually make it happen. Don't rely on the opinion of strangers. If you think you can do it and you might have a shot, I say go for it. Maybe read some testimonials from actual Broadway performers and see if it sounds appealing to you. Start small and build yourself up to where you want to be. Broadway might not be your first stop, but that's hell of a place to land. Good luck, and **** the haters.

Ask your parents if they plant tulips.

Looks like you have to kill your parents, I'm so sorry.

You have to follow your dreams at the end of the day. Maybe start school part time amd pursue your singing with the rest of your time.
