I head to Haiti with my Mom and Dad tomorrow morning. It’s going to be a great trip. It will be my first time back since the earthquake and I’m excited and a little anxious to be going. I’ll do my best to post some pix on here…who knows what might happen or what I might run across…

The last few weeks have been very hectic for my family and I. Prior to the earthquake in Haiti; my family was in the process of adopting two little girls from Haiti. I am now proud to say that I am an older brother to two little girls: Tia and Naika. Other than the earthquake, my normal teenage life was also a little hectic with try-outs, auditions, and trying to write music. I received the part of Lefou (Gaston’s Little Side-Kick) in my school play, Beauty and the Beast. The play has definitely helped me get through the times of the earthquake. Finally, I have been spending a lot of time writing some new songs.

My two new adopted sisters are the most amazing fit for my family. Tia is not afraid to run up to anybody and Naika will start a conversation with anyone (in Creole of course). I am so happy they are finally home and I can’t wait until they get used to being a part of my family. If any of you don’t know about them I will continue to update about them in the days to come.

Beauty and the Beast is such a fun play to be a part of. I am so excited for the play because all of the costumes are extremely real looking. On the other hand if you have ever seen the movie there are parts that are exactly the same as the movie and others that are completely different. My part, Lefou, is Gaston’s partner who tries to help Gaston hook up with Belle. Sadly in the end I fail miserably and a dresser beats me up. Even though I am a failure I still love my part and enjoy playing it.

My new songs are mostly focused on letting kids know that no matter what anyone else says follow your dreams. Some of my new songs include: Almost Goodbye, I’ve been waiting for this moment, and This is how I’ll do it. All of these songs should be available shortly after I can get some time in the studio to record them.

I hope you understand what has been going on in my life for the past few weeks. It’s been a little crazy and I’m hoping to spend more time on the blog in the days to come.

WOW! That’s all I can say.  The past 3 weeks have been pretty amazing.  For the last 3 weekends, I have had the opportunity to sing and open shows for Disney on Ice in Nashville, Charlotte, and Atlanta.  I have had such a blast singing, “Let’s Get This Party Started”…a song I wrote!  I have learned so much by writing, singing, and being in the studio during the past few months.  It was so much more than I thought it would be!

Atlanta was awesome!  I even got to sign autographs after the Friday night show.  Over 3000 Girl Scouts were there…I can’t even begin to describe what they sounded like screaming while I was singing.  I will NEVER forget that night.

Some pretty cool things are happening in the days ahead.  This weekend I am hosting a showcase and performing in Franklin, TN.  I really enjoy getting the chance to be on stage and host.  It allows me to use my acting skills.  I really like being in front of people.  It is a blast to be able to perform.  I plan on doing it for years to come!

At the showcase, I get to sing the FULL SONG, “Let’s Get This Party Started.”  It’s awesome to be able to perform it live!

If you want a copy of the song, it’s available HERE on my website!  It’s a pretty AWESOME song and will definitely help you get the PARTY STARTED wherever you are!  Also, you can check out the other stuff available.  I know I talk a lot about the website, but it’s because I’m so excited about the new stuff that’s constantly going up on it.  We try to update it regularly, so check back often.  If you haven’t seen the YOUR PICS section yet, you have to check it out.  It’s pretty cool to see pictures begin coming in!  People have been so excited to show off their shirts.  If you have a shirt make sure you send us your picture.  If you don’t have your shirt YET, you can get one here.

Thanks for taking the time to keep up with what’s going on in my world.  Who would have thought ME, a random 13 year old would be able to live his dreams out on stage?  I LOVE IT!!!

This weekend was spent with my family in Charlotte, North Carolina. I had so much fun performing at Disney On Ice presents Celebrations again. I enjoyed it even more knowing that I was spending the weekend with my family—even my little brother, Eli, got to come to this show. I also got to see a bunch of my Dad’s family who live in Charlotte.  I got to sing at the 2:30 and 6:30 shows both! I am really happy to be home though.

This coming Friday, I am off to Atlanta, Georgia to perform again. I am performing at 7:30pm on Friday night and at 6:30pm on Saturday night. I have no idea what my family has got planned to do Saturday morning. Atlanta might be my last performance, so if you haven’t seen me yet then come on out and watch the show.

For all of you that are my fan on Facebook I want to say thank you so much for helping me reach my goal of 500 fans. Since we reached that goal so fast we are now going for 1000 by the end of October.  Remember to tell all of your friends about it because when we reach a thousand I am going to pick another lucky fan to get a special prize. So the sooner we get to a thousand the sooner one of you will be the lucky winner.

So many of you have been asking when the song will be online. We are trying so hard to get it up on the website for digital download. For now we are going to sell CD’s with the song on it directly from the website. Also, we do have “Let’s Get This Party Started” t-shirts for sale on the website so don’t forget to tell all of your friends about them. If you buy a t-shirt and take a picture of yourself in it and send it to us we will put it up on the website. So hurry up and order yours today.

I have been waiting for this weekend for what seems like forever.  I got the chance to sing a song I wrote called, “Let’s Get This Party Started.” It was an amazing moment when time stood still.

This weekend was amazing and I had so much fun. When I got up on the stage and began to sing the adrenaline in my body was so high  I felt as thought I could have performed for three or four hours. Before I got up on stage was the first time that I have ever had butterflies before I performed.

On Friday night, I got to go back stage and meet all of the cast for Disney on Ice. They were all so nice and they could all skate so well. It is so cool to be able to say that I know the Mad Hatter, Aladdin, and Mickey Mouse. When I met Mr. Rodrick Jeter (the show’s Promoter) I knew immediately that he and I were going to be friends.  He took time to get to know me and my family and make us feel so at home among the cast.  He has such a great personality and was able to help me relax and know I’m doing exactly what I’m supposed to be doing.

I am so happy I get to go next week to Charlotte, NC.  I get to go on a mini tour with the same cast I was with in Nashville. They were all so nice and welcomed me with open arms into their “cast” family.  They even taught me what they say to each other at the beginning of a show…”Have a good one!”  I so enjoyed being a part of Disney on Ice presents: Celebrations.

After I had finished performing I knew without a doubt entertaining was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. The way I fed off the energy of the crowd and the way people were participating with me while I was singing, put an energy level inside ME I had never felt before.  It was so cool to know a song I wrote was such a big way to get the party started!  Hopefully we can find a way to put the song on the website soon so you can download it!

Ok, so I looked at my blog the other day and realized so much has happened since I last wrote anything.  Things are going crazy right now in my life.  It’s been a little hectic but I think it’s awesome!

If you didn’t already know, I’m performing Saturday with Disney on Ice presents: CELEBRATIONS.  I’m opening the show with a song I wrote called, “Let’s Get This Party Started.” It’s not too late to get your tickets.  I’m singing at the 2:30 and 6:30 shows.  Click HERE to get a discount on the tickets.

I had no clue what it took to make a song.  I wrote it and I guess I thought it would magically just appear on a CD some day.  That isn’t true.  I met with a producer who worked on it.  We got some amazing musicians to play on it.  The drum loops are rocking…kind of like a cross between Black Eyed Peas and Ozzy Osbourne!  The guitar parts are completely AWESOME.  The solo…well…let me just say, it’ll melt your face off!  The bass was slapped down by the best pound for pound bass player in town!  I get chills just thinking about it.

I got to sing the vocals (duh) and it was awesome.  Being in the studio is a place I really like.  I like having the headphones on and doing my part…singing.  One day I might be able to play an instrument or two on a song, but right now, I love singing.  I love being around the musicians who made the song and learning from them.  They were amazing.

I hope you’ll be able to come and check out the show.  Also, if you can’t make it to the show, check out my website and get a shirt!  That’s right…Dyllan Wilson t-shirts are here.  If you’re coming to the show, I hope you’ll wear your shirt and show your support.

Thanks everybody,

I have been working very hard on some new songs. I have alot of new stuff coming to the website.  Some of the new stuff coming is some really cool stuff that you can buy. I will get that up as soon as possible. I guess if you are reading this blog then you have visited my website. I am very glad that school has started back but I do miss the chance I write songs all day.  I’m really working harder and trying to get better at songwriting.  Hopefully I will be able to blog more as well.   I will talk to you guys later and update you on the website stuff. Please help me spread the word about dyllanwilson.com. So feel free to tell all your friends.
