I feel that the music that I do is somewhat of a lost art and it's not as popular as dance or pop music and people are not as interested in it. But it's something that I believe in and I feel that it's needed, so that's why I do it and I will keep doing it until everybody hears it and gets it.
Everybody is going to love me and this is not being cocky - this is just what I see.
I'm not the type of woman who shows off my body; I'm a vocalist and I'm a writer and I think people see that more so than they see anything else. That's just who I am.
I think the way I write is kind of naturally rhythmic. If there's anything of my own in my writing, I think that's my own thing. Like when I start a song, I almost hear the rhythm more than the melody.
If you hear a good song, it makes you hopeful like, That is out there.
Why do we love love when love seems to hate us?
As I'm writing it, I'm kind of curious to see what's going to happen. It almost feels like I'm the writer and I'm the listener, too.
I think a lot of the way that I try to write my stories come from watching my mom write plays and trying to do that.
The person I would trust the most is my mom. She's just really creative... She's a playwright and she's a musician.
I would just be vibing with whatever I liked the most. And then there were a couple songs that I started on my own. I would have a melody or an idea and I would take it to the studio to go through it.
After you've been away, people's expectations are like, "Well, you better have something to show for it. Tell us why you've been away so long!"
When I find myself having that much trouble with a song or a character or a story, I tend to move on.
The love that I got when I finally did start performing again was all that I needed to just get back out there. Just to know that people were out there and they missed me. That made all the difference.
I guess when I got into my preteens, I turned about 12 and I decided to sing R&B, because I felt like one day there were some things I felt like I would want to say, that I couldn't say with gospel music.
What's kind of weird is that when I'm writing I don't know where I'm going to go.
I'm not great with breathing, like holding notes. I usually don't. A lot of people wouldn't believe it, but I don't focus on technical stuff.
