Just be open, life is about a constant journey and I’m very spiritual, but I’m also in touch with what’s going on around me and who I am, and you have to know yourself. So for me, that’s what keeps me going is just being interactive.
Let your work speak for you.Stay humble.And just DO the work.
So in every sense, from an independent artist to a major label artist, you just have to have great product, great faith and great people, they all go together.
There’s always a story in music, and it’s expressed through my music.
I’m always doubting because I’ve been told so much that, you’re not the right look or you’re not the right sound, and, you know, whether I do jazz or R&B there are always complaints.
I study a lot of the greats; I study the current people out now and what people are listening to now. I don’t shun anything away; I just check it all out and make my own judgment.
If love found me it can surely find you. I ain’t even got one sad tear left in me.
Tell me I can’t so I can show you I CAN!
I would just listen to the complaints about what I do instead of celebrating what I do, and that I’m different and in my own lane. It took a while for me to just ignore the doubts.
I love opera so much. I would never go back to doing it, but I love to listen – I’m grateful for it. I studied diction, breathing control, phrasing, why the song means something. You want to bring that across to your listeners.
Be careful of who and what you let into your space. Not everyone is worthy of your presence.
I’m very open, I love music and I love people so you need to know what’s going on.
