If your claim to fame is singing the national anthem at Florida Marlins games for 15 consecutive years, you'll probably have difficulty converting that exposure into pop stardom, unless you started that streak billed as "The Incredible Singing Baby." But nobody tells Margo Joy what she can't do, especially since she apparently trademarked the phrase "Never Lose Sight of Your Dreams." When she's not belting out "The Star-Spangled Banner" for the Marlins' 12 followers, Joy performs commissioned (?) jingles for the likes of Office Depot and Millennium Laser Eye Center, much to the delight of her MySpace friends Bubbles, Mr. Support Friend David, and Spiritual Medium and Teachertm.
Mr. Support Friend David can find plenty of company in the "Supporters" section of Joy's site, which isn't filled with the fans, mentors and benefactors one might expect, but instead with whatever athletes and celebrities she could lure into posed photos using her anthem-singer pull. Her stated goal is to "become a world renown recording artist," like listed influences "Darius Rutger" and "Cold Play." Until then, look for her to bring her "unique dynamic vocal quality" to the pre-event festivities at an Air Fair, middleweight boxing match or Israeli Independence Day concert near you!
Are you concerned that you may be a character trapped in a Tom Waits song? Be smart and learn the warning signs before it's too late. Also, it's too late. It has always been too late.
I'm haunted by a recurring vision of a skeleton flipping me off. To avoid seeing this terrifying image in bumper sticker form, I pay someone with a blank bumper to drive in front of me at all times.
