I was never taken to a play or concert or church. Yet I was a show-off, a dreamer, a storyteller.
The first concert I saw was Cheryl Wheeler.
The world is full of ways for people to dance. Concert dance doesn't get its due.
To come to a concert and hear a lot of songs from a female perspective should not make men say, 'Oh well, that's for women'.
I hope that one day the people of Quebec will one day be a part of the concert of nations. This is an internal debate. This will happen when Quebecers are ready.
You go to a pop concert or a classical concert but there's nothing in between.
It's funny, but to me, when you go to a concert hall and hear electronic pieces from the '60s, I think they sound really dated. But when an orchestra plays a piece from that period, and it's going to sound different every time, it feels more modern to me.
I think more people in the mainstream, folks like Nancy Wilson and Luther Vandross, they have openly expressed their love for God, and when mainstream artists start expressing their love for God openly in their concerts and including gospel songs in their concert, and, you know, people started embracing it.
There's an awful lot of resources that can be drawn upon in an improvised music concert.
I remember a concert for a visiting girls school, and that was the first time I ever sang - it was always about girls - that was the main thing. But somewhere along the line, it became a cathartic thing.
Classical music in Venezuela is now something like a pop concert. You can see people screaming or crying because they don't have a ticket.
In my imagination yes, I remember, when I was six years old, I was conducting all this concert in my house. But now it's real.
If I can do concert recitals, adapting the repertoire to my needs, then no problem, that's good enough. But with operas, unless the right circumstances come up, my career is done.
I still continue to do at least four concert tours a year, and in many cases, as many as six.
All my friends went to the Madonna concert when I was in, maybe, the 9th grade, and my mother refused to let me go.
I grew up in the '80s, and there was no bigger group than New Edition in R&B. I broke my piggy bank so me and my mom could go to a New Edition concert together.
Because of the wealth of fine music spread through the film, working on it held all the fun and excitement of attending a great concert.
To do more of a concert thing, it takes so much preparation. You don't just show up and wing it. You're putting countless hours in the studio, not just to write and produce stuff, but to come up with edits and special things for the show.
The first concert that my parents took me to was in this canyon in Saudi Arabia called Buttermilk Canyon. You sleep under the stars in the desert, and ex-pats - German, Swiss, Canadian, American - would play classical music that filled the whole canyon.
I wear a lot of second hand clothes unless I have a concert and then I wear beaded and sequined second hand clothes. No stylist dresses me although I do have a woman that assists me with the buttons.
There's no shame in owning a New Kids on the Block t-shirt. They were my first concert when I was eight.
I love pop music... some hip hop... not super big into rap, but I love Rihanna. I love Alicia Keys. Rihanna was my first concert I went to. I love her.
Performing live is not my favourite. I am more of a recording person; I prefer to be private. I didn't mind doing videos, even if they came very close with the camera. I can take that, but walking on stage in concert and singing live, that is a bit difficult.
I used to get very nervous before a concert. It's okay when you are in a band. You can kind of disappear. But when it's just you... yes, that was difficult. I would not say it is easy now. But when you do it for a long time, you do learn to cope.
You have this special connection with someone if you're their first record or their first concert or their first poster or whatever it is.
