I would love to do a biopic of a famous singer, like Diana Ross or Donna Summer, or an old jazz story that we haven't seen before. I would love to do that! I would love to play Diana Ross 'cause she's an icon. I'm salivating to do that.
Taraji P. Henson
As a singer I tried on all these hats, these voices, these clothes, and eventually out came me.
My #1 goal is to become a successful singer and share my gift with the world.
Everywhere I go, the kids call me 'the book lady.' The older I get, the more appreciative I seem to be of the 'book lady' title. It makes me feel more like a legitimate person, not just a singer or an entertainer. But it makes me feel like I've done something good with my life and with my success.
I still sing, but completely for my own pleasure. I play a nightclub singer in 'Sparkle,' but I'd like to pursue it a bit more. I sang at a friend's 60th at Claridge's the other month; I did 'Baby It's Cold Outside' with the actor Hilton McRae, and 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow.'
My first inspiration for acting came from the first episode of 'Hannah Montana.' That's when I knew I wanted to be a singer and an actress.
The truth of it is that every singer out there with songs on the radio is raising the next generation, so make your words count.
If you play an instrument, it makes you a better singer. The more you play, the better you sing, the more you sing, the better you play.
When I decided to be a singer, my mother warned me I'd be alone a lot. Basically we all are.
I call myself a blues singer, but you ain't never heard me call myself a blues guitar man.
B. B. King
All the intelligence and talent in the world can't make a singer. The voice is a wild thing. It can't be bred in captivity. It is a sport, like the silver fox. It happens.
My mother is a singer, my sisters all sing, my uncles are incredible singers and guitar players, so it's just kind of been like my habitat.
There is no prodigy in our profession. If you see all the great singer of the past, none of them are.
When I'm singing, it's like I'm at home. And music is a great healer. I think I'd have been a basket case if I hadn't been a singer.
I loved everything about show business, meeting the stars, the whole ambience. I was living every young kid's dream. I was told a pop singer's life was three years, but I was still making money seven years later.
I don't feel like God called me to be a gospel singer. He didn't call me to be a Christian singer; he called me to be a country singer, and I just happen to be a Christian.
The word 'no' is a very good word in a singer's repertoire.
Kiri Te Kanawa
Some of my favourite record and album covers and stuff have all been the singer, and they create a character, and they dress up a little bit.
I moonlight as a singer.
I feel so lucky to have been in a group where it was a real band. This wasn't a singer and guitar player and some other guys.
Being able to fantasize for a couple of days at being a rock singer surpassed most things I've done on stage.
If someone asked what kind of music I play, I wouldn't say I'm a folk singer; however, if folk music means music for the people, and playing music to entertain them and share different messages, then sure, I'd like to think that I'm part folk singer.
I wanted to be a singer forever. But it's not really my cup of tea. Having the whole world know who you are.
I tried to sing 'What's Going On' with Amy Winehouse once at an old cinema in the West End. There was a funk band that had members of both of our bands playing in it, but it was the worst kind of place to sing bad karaoke because everyone there was an amazing singer or musician.
I made numerous attempts to find a way to do it all, to be a creative singer, songwriter, producer, and to be the mother, daughter, sister, lover, wife. And the thing about music is, with me, that she's a harsh mistress. She does not come to me in the midst of stress.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
