"For singers, this yearning to sing is typically so intense, that we feel as though we have almost no choice in the matter; that singing has in fact chosen us, not the other way around, and we must heed its call, or suffer excruciatingly. The necessity to sing is more than a passion: it is a need so strong, that if ignored, causes actual physical pain, but one for which there is no painkillers, because the pain is emotional and spiritual, but sits, nevertheless, in our physical body, alongside our voice."

"I would tell 17-year-olds to be proud of who you are. Don’t try to change yourself for others. Focus on school and your future. Boys and friends will come and go, just focus on you and your future."
