The Observer - a photo journal

I have a friend that wants to be a famous singer. I donít mean this to be a forum for me to bash her, but despite having a really good voice she will probably not make it. The music business is very different these days, and one doesnít break into the business in the old ways. Tie that with a weak work ethic and you have someone who will, despite her raw talent, not make it. I think of a guy like Jerry Rice, who wasnít drafted high, wasnít considered to have that much raw talent, and what he did. Rice was a perfectionist, modest, and had the best work ethic in the NFL. Itís said of the best of the best that they rise above because of talent mixed with absolute determination. If only my friend had the determination, then sheíd be what she wants to be.
