It's the face and the body and the thing that we hide inside that can keep us from the world, but my voice is my voice.
To sing opera, one needs two things: the voice and the passion - and above all, the passion.

You know, I'm a big comic book fan. As a kid I used to collect them until there was a horrible mudslide in Hollywood and I lost my collection, but I was also at an early age the voice of 'Jonny Quest;' it was a cartoon; so I am kind of a latent fan boy.
