Hi,guys. Having trouble uploading my demo.
Can someone please give me a pointer?
Go "advanced" as you reply to this, then go to "attachments" in the toolbar. It's the paperclip icon.

Also, it used to be anything over 1mb wouldn't upload. Not sure whether that's been fixed here yet or not.
If you want, you can always send us a link to listen to it from somewhere else. Sound Cloud is a great option.

Thanks, Yonie,ScottPollak and BlackPaladin I decided to go with my Tumblr link. Uploading was like jogging around the block to go to my next door neighbor's. http://rayrosa-2votumblrcom.tumblr.com/

Reason: Forgot to add link
You have a nice resonate voice, I can hear a lot of potential character and flavors within it. The demo is good, but there is nothing that really sticks out- it seems as if you never really got out of second gear. There were no surprises, and you never made any of the words your own.
You started to make something of the Hurst Hemi spot, but you never took it all the way. The "feeling" or "character" that you were trying to convey was cosmetic, and much of that tone carried throughout the entire demo. You need to make a firmer commitment to your choices; know who your character is, who your character is talking to and where the conversation is taking place.
This demo sounds home brew and the music selections are weak, and are more distracting than supporting.
I would also suggest finding some stronger copy. Also nix the name tag at the end. Nothing says lean, hungry and amateur, than a lack of confidence by bookending a demo with name tags. Once is enough, if at all.
I feel you got the goods, you just need to polish the apple. Keep going you're almost there.

Yup. +1 to Mike's comments.
Nice voice. Sounds like you have some good range. Good sound.
The delivery just isn't solid yet.
Coaching, practice and time should help that.
Thanks, Mike and Scott for the great feedback! That's my 2nd demo. I let myself get rusty from maintaining a full time job and not dedicating enough time to staying in practice. Now I'm unemployed and took 2 months to prep. Funny thing is the comment you both made about range is the sane compliment I received when I quacked on cue from the casting director at the Aflac audition.
