Quote of the Day

It's quite a famous story that takes place on Christmas Eve, and the Germans, French, and Scottish are trying to make peace one night and they bury their dead and they play football. I play a German opera singer, in German, which I never have so I am really excited about that.
As a singer, it's basic to preserve what I like to do, which is music, and also to remember my cradlesongs in Spanish.
I have never called myself an opera singer. Other people do, but I always call myself a classical singer. I'd love to do opera, but I'm still too young and I don't want to do it until I'm ready. I realise that when I do that it's going to be... up for discussion, shall we say, so I want to get it right.
I felt like people only knew me as a singer who dated pretty girls.
I'm a country singer, and I'm comfortable with that. But why does a country singer have to play only on country radio or a rock singer only on a rock station? I still don't understand why it's that big a deal.
Like an opera singer, I am able to sing out my song in paint.
I'm not a very good singer. I just know how to present a song, and honey, I think I've been through enough to do it right.
I never thought of myself as a really particularly great singer.
I'm the lead singer of the Beach Boys and an ambassador of this amazing music that touched a generation.
I'm a singer and performer in a hybrid show that's standup, music and audience participation.
It's nice to establish yourself as an actor first and a singer second. Proof is such a tremendous piece of work, and I'm incredibly lucky to be a part of it. I'm sure that the musicals will happen in the future, though.

I had no choice but to work hard. I was a straight-A student, went to college, and I loved business. I never thought I was going to be a singer myself. It came accidentally.
On my gravestone, I want 'Here lies the singer,' not 'Here lies the T.V. presenter'.
I once wrote a short story called 'The Best Blues Singer in the World,' and it went like this: 'The streets that Balboa walked were his own private ocean, and Balboa was drowning.' End of story. That says it all. Nothing else to say. I've been rewriting that same story over and over again. All my plays are rewriting that same story.
I get on a real serious health kick when I'm on the road, because as a singer, you can't really get sick. If you get sick, your whole instrument stops working. I've done all these different vitamin drinks. I drink coconut water, and I run. I eat food. I juice.
You have to keep fit being a singer - that's part of the job. You can't do it unless you have incredible stamina.
Ever since grammar school, I knew I wanted to be famous - I always wanted to be a singer.
As a singer I tried on all these hats, these voices, these clothes, and eventually out came me.
When I'm singing I try not be a singer with a capital S. I just try to get it out so I feel comfortable with it.
I never was a very good singer.
Nobody really thought I was going to make it, because I was a musician. I really wasn't a singer.
I'm a traditional country singer and we're always trying to make that a fresh and modern sound. That's always going to be the challenge with me.
No, I chose the name Jane Seymour because I was doing my first film, 'Ode to Lovely War,' and one of the top agents in England spotted me dancing in the chorus. I was a singer and dancer in that movie with Maggie Smith, um, and he told me he couldn't sell me as Joyce Penelope Willomena Frankenburger.
I got my first acting role because I was a singer.
What's interesting is a lot of the older music when we start performing it, it acts a lot like muscle memory. It's kind of like riding a bike. For me as a singer, I just had to remember like what part of my face I sang that into.
