Singing Since Birth


Sydnee Ramos, Staff Writer

Music is the BIGGEST factor in my life (besides softball). Ever since I was little, I have always been singing and dancing, and it might stem from the fact that every weekend my mom and dad end their weeks by blasting music throughout the house.

 My mother told me that when I was a baby I would walk around the house in my diaper singing and dancing to “Don’t Cha” by the Pussycat Dolls.

My family one year had a surprise party for my now passed great aunt and my parents tell me that I went up to the DJ when “Baby” by Justin Bieber came on, took the mic and sang.

Before Kindergarten I had to go and take a test to see if I was ready for school. At the end my mom was called into the room, they told her that they asked me to sing them a song thinking that I would sing something like “twinkle twinkle little star” or the “ABC’s” but no. I climbed onto the table and started singing “The Best of Both Worlds” by Hannah Montana. At the time I really loved Hannah Montana and I loved to sing so I took the opportunity that was given to me. 

When i was around the age of 3 I would always wear this blonde Hannah Montana wig everywhere I went, it was used so much it wasn’t even a wig it was a nest that laid on the top of my head, but in my 3 year old brain I looked like Hannah Montana and no one knew I was Sydnee Ramos. There is a video of me on YouTube of when I was 3 of me in that wig singing “If We Were A Movie” from the show.  

looking back at it, the biggest mistake my parents could have made was letting my Godfather buy me a karaoke machine for Christmas one year. That thing was never off. I would put together concerts in my room for all of my dolls and stuffed animals. I would put my Justin Bieber and Hannah Montana Albums (I still remember which ones they were) in the machine and sing all day and never get tired of it. 

That same year for Christmas I got a Miley Cyrus CD. I made my dad play it on the TV as soon as I opened it. I owned a portable CD player that I would bring with me everywhere I went, I would plug headphones in and sing at the top of my lungs in the back of the car. 

The fact that my parents and my siblings never told me to shut up is very special to me because they knew I enjoyed it, and if they would have said something about it I probably wouldn’t have the confidence that I have now, and I probably wouldn’t enjoy it as much as I still do to this day.
