I need to work on this.'”

A Big Reason for My Life

“People in love look into each other’s souls,
and it is that feeling that I try to capture when I sing.
I listen to the people.
That was a big reason for my life, maybe the main reason,
I’m singing because I love it when people say to me,
‘Thank you.’ I thank them. It’s a marriage.”
