Never say that your life is to be a singer. You want to sing because it's a part of your life. But if you don't succeed as a singer, it doesn't mean you don't have a life and it's over.
For me, the music dictates the melody. Give me a riff to sing over, you know?
When I was growing up, I'd be in the choir. My mum was the organist in the church, so I'd sing in the church.
I would quite like to play a big concert as Freddie Mercury. I can't sing that great and I haven't yet found a use for the over large size of my teeth. I quite fancy a mustache like that and he was such a great showman.
I just sing the stuff that makes me smile, makes me feel like I didn't sell myself out.
My faith is the grand drama of my life. I'm a believer, so I sing words of God to those who have no faith.
Music is my way out. I keep things locked up and never say anything. I guess in order to say something to one person, I have to sing it to a couple of thousand. It doesn't make for healthy relationships.
You've got to find ways to breathe while you're dancing so that when it comes time for you to stop and sing again, you have it. To prepare, I do a lot of aerobic activity. Many times at the gym, people will look at me because I'll be on the treadmill humming.
I love 'Somebody to Love' by Queen and of course 'Bohemian Rhapsody' is one of my favorites, just because it makes everyone in the room go crazy. Everyone tries to sing along with it, and half the room gets it right and the other half gets it wrong.
I loved words. I love to sing them and speak them and even now, I must admit, I have fallen into the joy of writing them.
I enjoy the process of composing music. The first time I hear a song, it has to bring a smile to my lips. You have to tap your feet and be able to sing the song.
I do music because I can just pick up my guitar and sing, and completely satisfy, instant gratification. I don't need a script, I don't people, I don't need anything, cameras, I just have myself and my guitar, or keyboard.
Music tells you about the artist and what they were thinking about at the time, because the person has to think about it to sing it.
I play in a band, I write songs, I sing, you know, perform on stage.
I've always wanted to sing, just as I've always known that one day I would have my own niche in the annals of song. It was a feeling I had.
I want to sing simple things for the simple lives of simple people.
I sing to the realists; people who accept it like it is.
I had an amazing childhood and always loved to sing and dance, but there were moments where I had ups and downs with my health that often tested me as it does many people. I've never hidden the fact that my health was sometimes not on my side, but I've never let it define me or deter me from my dreams.
When I sing, it's the most solitary state: just me, and the microphone, and the holy spirit. It's not about notes or scales, it's all about emotion.
I have many favorite artists... Van Gogh as one, but he didn't really sing a lot!
I lucked out when I started to sing. I'd already experienced failing at everything else.
I'm in a really lucky position where people will be interested in whatever I do, but what I do is sing.
Drama if I sing, drama if I don't sing. What do you do?
John legend is a nickname that somebody started calling me a while ago and part of it is 'cos I sound like an old man when I sing.
If someone wants to say 'I love you' in a straight play, they say it, and then it's the other person's turn to talk. But in a song, you can sing about it for another three minutes. The musical form has that unique opportunity to express at length what joy really feels like.
