The LifeStyle Connection
is a dynamic group of christian women who will come together to entertain, inspire and support each other. They
will enjoy the opportunity to grow and help other women to grow. They will share their talents to inspire,
motivate and strengthen other women. This is a group of women who have a common goal to be the best they can be...every
day, and lead other women into being their best!
Ladies of The LifeStyle Connection will be able to sing, but
do not have to have a solo voice. They will have rhythm, but do not have to be an experienced dancer. They will
need to be able to speak from stage, but do not have to be a public speaker. They will need to be able to socialize
with ease when introduced to new acquaintences.
These ladies will either already have a polished look or be
willing to develop a polished look. There will be tremendous support for whatever you need to do to become the lady
you would like to be. The goal of this group is to be an example
of what accomplished southern christian women look like! You, along with Rita, will attend events where you may do anything
from greeting folks at the door, to modeling, to performing a group song on stage.
You will be a chosen, polished service group to
inspire other women! You will look so forward to our events as they will not only encourage and inspire others, but
will be a personal highlight of your life as well. There
are some very exciting plans for us as we mature together!
The audition is private with Rita and will last approximately
20-30 minutes. You will need to sing a verse and chorus of any song you choose, with or without music (but no voices
on the track if you use music.) If you are able to harmonize, Rita would also like to hear some harmony!
You will need to show that you can move to the rhythm of a song (Rita will lead you). If you play an instrument, please
bring it and play just a short piece for Rita. If you play the piano, there is one in the Arts Center. You will
need to stand and speak for one minute (as if speaking to an audience) on any subject you choose. Rita will ask you
three questions about anything, just to see how well you can "think on your feet!" Lastly, Rita would like to know what your
deepest desires are for yourself...what you would like to accomplish...where you want to be and what you want to look
like this time next year! It will be lots of fun!
Blessings to you as you bless others!
What a joy it is to have a life filled with beautiful sisters! One of
my dearest friends, Darlene Real Higginbotham, is really the motivation for this wonderful addition of "The LifeStyle Connection" to
my new Center for the Arts, Education and Wellness. She and her similar group, The Model Connection, have experienced
tremendous success. I have pictured her below with The Model Connection (sitting on the right). Thank you, Darlene,
for your beautiful spirit and wonderful insight. ~Rita
What a blessing you are to me. If it was only a visit, your bright spirit would have lifted me up, however,
you did not come for a visit alone; but to bless my socks off with your knowledge. You are such a gentle teacher.
Thank you does not fully express my appreciation, but it is my best so Thank You. Your encouragement has changed me.
With love and appreciation, Darlene
