      Hi Katrina! I’m so glad you pointed that out, because I would absolutely agree with that statement 95% of the time as well. However, for a few very specific roles it may be okay to sing, and if your voice just somehow hits its absolute perfect sweet spot when singing “Memory” (or any other overused audition song) it’s okay to go for it as well. But you’re so right that most of the time it’s probably best to stay away from singing “Memory”. And since you pointed that out, I’ve decided to replace it on the list with a song that’s not so overdone. Thank you!!
