I am Mercedes Jones. I am the diva of the New Directions Glee Club. I love to belt out songs. I feel the music from my soul! My rival use to be Rachel but we have become better friends. My best friend is Kurt and I was the first one to know that he is gay and to help him accept himself for the wonderful person he is. I am looking forward to this year of school. I have graduated McKinley High . It is hard to believe. I finally got back with Sam this year. He is my true love. He made a video of me singing and sent it to some music producers in Los Angeles. So guess that is where I will be heading after graduation.
