Forget Nashville; the sea may be calling Sarah Le Clear

You are wonderful.

Back on September 10, I wrote a blog post that wondered why hometown girl (and girl of other hometowns) Sarah Le Clear, the winner of the Ugly Coyote Search contest last spring, wasn't performing with the Traveling Coyotes yet.

On Sunday evening, Loren provided an answer.

She is working for Royal Carribean as a star performer on the Explorer of the Seas.

Loren, by the way, is...um...clearly a fan:

Coyotes need her to make the group a success.....they left the Calfiornia girl out! Guess they don't know what to do with real talent!!!!

Well, the Explorer of the Seas is big:

There's never been a cruise ship like this. Enjoy one-of-a-kind features like an ice-skating rink, the Royal Promenade and a rock-climbing wall. There was only one way to accommodate all of these innovative ideas. We built a bigger cruise ship. The 138,000-ton, 3,114-guest Explorer of the Seas offers more space for every guest - plus enhanced staterooms, expanded dining options and exceptional recreational facilities. This cruise ship is so high-tech, it even features the University of Miami Ocean Lab, a state-of-the-art oceanographic and atmospheric science lab.

And the cruise ship even has a godmother, Jackie Joyner-Kersee. I don't know if that means that Joyner-Kersee was the one who hit the boat with a bottle, or what.

I couldn't find any explicit mention of Le Clear at the Royal Caribbean website, but if you really want to join her, there's one way to do it:

Q: How can I audition to become a singer or dancer onboard?

A: If you are interested in becoming a part of Royal Caribbean's In-House Production shows, please visit us at Royal Caribbean Productions.

No TV exposure for the auditions, though.

Incidentally, I was unable to confirm Loren's statement that Le Clear is currently working on the Explorer of the Seas. But the Daily Bulletin article from last May indicates that she's done similar work in the past, along with a bunch of other stuff:

Le Clear, who started dancing at 5, has been a member of the Golden State Warriors dance troupe, a cruise ship dancer, an assistant dance director for an international dance group and, currently, is a dance instructor to 4- to 13-year-olds in Rancho Cucamonga.

Then again, the article also said

The 26-year-old Upland resident recently won the opportunity to become the sixth member in Coyote Ugly, a dancing and singing girl-group that records music albums and tours around the country entertaining crowds in bars.

"It was an unbelievable ride, and I am so excited to move forward with it," Le Clear said.

In June, she will join the rest of the group in Nashville to finish the Coyotes' full-length CD, which will be released later this year. In addition to her new role, Le Clear won $50,000.

Apparently Le Clear wasn't THAT excited to "move forward with it."

(More on this as it develops.)
