For me, music and life are all about style.

Singing, it's like it's like loving somebody, it's a supreme emotional and physical experience.
It's a great thing about being a musician; you don't stop until the day you die, you can improve. So it's a wonderful thing to do.
Every hidden cell is throbbing with music and life, every fiber thrilling like harp strings.

In these days of political, personal and economic disintegration, music is not a luxury, it's a necessity; not simply because it is therapeutic, nor because it is the universal language, but because it is the persistent focus of our intelligence, aspiration and goodwill.
We need to have music that contributes to the well-being of the spirit. Music that cradles people's lives and makes things a little easier. That's what I try to do, and what I want to do. You don't want to close the door on hope.
I can destroy a dance floor. I think life should be a musical. I always hate it when people watch a musical and they go, 'Oh, it's so unrealistic, no one just breaks into song in the middle of their day.' Yeah, they do- if they're me.
People are like music, some speak the truth and others are just noise.
An instant family classic that is utterly unique but reminiscent of films like 'E.T.,' 'Sound of Music' and 'Life Is Beautiful.'

People haven't always been there for me, but music always has.
There is no feeling, except the extremes of fear and grief, that does not find relief in music.

Music is the medicine of the breaking heart.
If I had my life to live over again, I would have made a rule to read some poetry and listen to some music at least once every week.
