Now that Cami is off to College at USF in Tampa, I can only hope that it’s going to be a lot easier getting her to graduation than it was her sister Candis.
I remember running on the beach in Coronado with Candis the day she said to me … Dad I think I’m gonna drop out of UCLA, it’s not helping me at all with my singing career. I advised her not to quit but just take a semester off and see how she felt after that, thankfully she missed the intellectual part of it, so after a short break went back and graduated Magna Cum Laude.
My first close call with College and Candis (pictured singing at the Roxy in Hollywood and singing below) came in New York where after finishing High School in France, she enrolled at NYU where she studied drama and also made the Dean’s list. After two years though she decides that she can learn acting anywhere and because she really wants to be a singer, she transfers to UCLA to pursue her dreams. Her professor at NYU told her before she left that she was making a big mistake because theatre was the direction she needed to go, not singing in some rock band. He claimed that even now she was wasting her time going to college because she was already good enough to audition for any Broadway Play that she wanted to. He asked her if she needed him to call me so he could explain just how talented you are, she told him not to bother because I was already her biggest fan.
Candis sings her own composition “Let Me”.
The responsibility of every Program Director is the make their radio station sound as good as their biggest fans already think it does.
