“You can’t just say I love you, you have to LIVE I love you.”

“If you’re gonna live, then live it up. If you’re gonna give, then give it up. If you’re gonna walk the Earth, then walk it proud. If you’re gonna say the word, you got to say it loud.”

“Music is the last true voice of the human spirit. It can go beyond language, beyond age, and beyond color straight to the mind and heart of all people.”

“As long as the songs are strong, I think you can express yourself in any style and have it be soulful and have it be your own voice.”

“I grew up with a heavy diet of gospel, folk, and blues because those are kind of the cornerstones of traditional American music.”

“As long as someone else controls your history the truth shall remain just a mystery.”

“My choice is what I choose to do,
And if I’m causing no harm, it shouldn’t bother you.
Your choice is who you choose to be,
And if you’re causin’ no harm, then you’re alright with me.”
