Hello my beautiful RionStones!
Other than obsessively asking you guys to vote every week I haven’t really had a chance to update you guys with what I’ve been up to out here in the land of opportunity… Los Angeles! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! My dad and brother flew out to spend Thanksgiving with me and mom. It was so awesome having them here! I’m so thankful I had my whole family together… especially considering how emotional last week was :). X Factor provided us with a sumazing Thanksgiving meal and we all managed to eat ourselves sick LOL. Hey, that’s the goal right?!
First I must thank you guys. I mean, wow. Every week when I scroll through my social media accounts i’m literally blown away at the incredible amount of support I have out there. I feel the love! I’m humbled every day by it :). You guys rock! THANK YOU RIONSTONES!
So last week…. well, that was intense to say the least! As most of you probably saw on my face :) I think we all have a new found respect for Mr.Simon Cowell! It was hard because I love Josh Levi and his mom is so sweet. I’m confident Josh will have a successful career no matter what. But once again YOU GUYS saved me! I truly feel it’s all in God’s hands, but am going to fight as hard as I can till the end.
This Wednesday I’ll be singing two songs! The theme this week is “Diva Week” so I will be singing a song from one of my favorite diva country artists! I will also be singing a “Stripped Down” song. You know… intimate, possibly make a few people cry, possibly cry myself kinda song :). I’m uncertain how many contestants go home this week. Could be another double elimination… those hurt :)
With that said… I’m asking you guys to fight with me! I know you’ve all been working so hard at spreading the word and voting. There’s a strategy behind this whole voting ordeal and I need you guys to sign onto it! It’s not easy asking my supporters to stop everything and sacrifice time every Wed to vote for little ole’ me… but here I am… asking from the bottom of my heart! I’m going to need my army this week!
TO MAXIMIZE YOUR VOTES:
1. Use the 2 hours voting window following the show to call and text only. Worry about your online 50x SuperVote later!
*After a little research I found out if you vote using text messaging vs calling the toll-free number you can increase your votes by 5 times. If you have unlimited texting included in your cell phone plan it’s FREE to text vote. You can average 100 votes/5 min using this method! Calling the toll-free number you only average 20 votes/5 min. However, if calling is your only option due to not having unlimited text messaging in your cell plan… redial (855)843-9311 your precious hearts out <3!!!
IF YOU HAVE UNLIMITED TEXTING PLEASE TEXT 11 TO 21523 AS MANY TIMES AS YOU CAN DURING THE 2 HOUR WINDOW FOLLOWING THE SHOW!
2. Cast your online 50x SuperVote AFTER the phone lines close! You actually have until 10amET the next morning (Thursday) to enter your online votes!
CAST YOUR ONLINE VOTE AT:
3. Spread the word! Encourage co-workers, family members, friends, facebook friends, the UPS man, your nail tech, your hair dresser, your church… TO VOTE! Share the attached informative voting photos on your social media pages!
My mama didn’t raise no quitter! So when the going gets tough… put on your warrior hat and prepare for battle!
From the bottom of my heart… from my family to yours… THANK YOU.
A MESSAGE FROM MY SWEET MAMA:
"Hello everyone, I don’t know if everyone saw x-factor last night. Rion was in the bottom Two and sang for her life and made it through (GOD is good!!)
I know Rion has a massive support back home!!! We feel the love.. We need everyone to pull together and vote next week for her .. It is going to take a lot of commitment on everyone’s part. Only 3 weeks left of the show!!!
Best way to get Rion the most votes is:
1. Text voting is open for 2hr after show you can vote as many times as you want! (If you have unlimited texting with your cell plan… IT’S FREE!)
Save #21523 to your phone, then text 11 as many times as you can within the 2hr window right after the show..if you try it now it will tell you voting is closed, but you can test it.
2. Then super vote through your Facebook! Make sure you confirm at the bottom of the screen. You can vote 50 times in one shot. The Facebook votes are open till 10am the next day.. So do this after your 2hr voting window.
Our family loves all of you guys. Each of you has played a special part in getting Rion to this spot. Jamey I believe that Rion is serving a special purpose being in this competition and want her to stay as long as GOD wants her here..we would love for everyone to send us pictures of you voting!!! Post them & spread the word. U guys are who is truly going to make this happen.
