"Jack! The only thing that you lack is just courage and confidence.  Do not be embarrassed by thinking that so many people are watching you.  Off course! It is a natural thing to be harassed and lose confidence but you should try to overcome your weakness..."
    Michael continued to advise me until it was the day when everything was to be revealed: who was the best and who was the worst that was 'the annual grand finale of singing competition', when the winner would be chosen and will be named as "THE BEST SINGER OF THE YEAR".  It was not the first time I was trying.  I had seen four lucky singers rewarded.  All judges now recognized me and would pay no attention as they knew how my singing was.  It was not my voice that would let me be rejected but it was my lack of confidence that would make my voice trembling and would never impress anyone.
I was so disappointed by the past four years that never intended to try again but again it was my all because of my poor sick mother.  I was not qualified because of lack of money.  I started to work at the age of eight.  My mother was already ill and father left me and my mother when I was just two, so I was the only person left to earn the bread for my house.  In the meantime, Michael who worked with me told me about the singing competition that was to held four years ago.  I tried the first time, the second, the third and even the fourth, and all in vain.  One singer was only allowed to participate five times.  So my five years would complete on that day.  For me, that day was my life or death.  
 The day came, but this time, I tried harder than ever.  I never remember how the time passed before but just knew my name was called and I strode towards the stage with full confidence.  It would not matter if I was fifth time there.  "I have the last chance.  It would be now or never "I thought and started.  The hall was filled with silence.  People even forgot to breath.  I never knew how it all happened!  I just sang and sang until the song ended.  My voice became more and more melodious.  I gained more confidence by the attention that I was given by the audience.  The hall was filled with the round of applause and whistling.  I was flying with passion.  I knew I survived.  The voice of the judge made me feel proud of myself and my mother who brought me up:
  "The winner of this annual grand finale is "Jack Davidson".        
The gold medal was shining and glimmering in my neck as though celebrating my happiness with me!
