There is something new in the Deteksi Youth Competition this year. On the band competition, there is new thing appeared. For the first time after the years, Deteksi band Competition is open for the Middle Schoolers. Seeing this opportunity, Ivy Middle School didn’t want to be left behind. With no doubt, I-Gen as the official school band in Ivy Middle School, finally decided to register. They worked hard since that day, and no one came to the studio with hesitation.
The band consists of 5 young players; Stanley on drum, Stephen on keys, Michiko on bass, Daniel on guitar, and Kevin on vocal. After some of practices, there was a bad news coming. Daniel’s grand daddy has just passed away and he must go to Jakarta for some days which meant leaving out the performance for the competition. The other band member felt sorry and was so blue because of it. But the decision has made. They moved forward, with our without Daniel.
So it took about 2 hours of time to reach there by car. I-Gen arrived earlier there at Alkafelaz studio which made the organizer changed the schedule. After approximately 10 minutes, I-Gen went up to the audition room. The room was cozy with wooden floor, amplifiers (for sure), and yellow lamps.
Before it started auditioning, I took a picture of the band and went out, since the organizer didn't let the teacher come inside as one of the rules. So, in seconds after I went out, I-Gen started playing the first song; Night Changes by One Direction. In my opinion, Night Changes went almost perfect. The second one was It's My Life by Bon Jovi and it sounded alive.
After the audition was over, I-Gen had a good chance taking picture and having chat with the head of the judges, Mr. Adi Nugroho, who was very humble and friendly.
The day went well and I-Gen members were satisfying on what they did that day. When I asked about what they felt, this was what I heard; “Whatever the result would be, we’ve done the best”. Then I saw their chin up. About this, let me remind you about the wise words from the well-known swimmer and Olympian, Summer Sanders. She said, “To be a champion, you have to see the big picture. It’s not about winning and losing. It’s about everyday hard work and about thriving on a challenge. It’s about embracing the pain that you’ll experience at the end of a race and not being afraid. I think people think too hard and get afraid of a certain challenge.” Go ahead I-Gen.
