Stevie Wonder's records introduced me to '70s soul when I was 12 or 13.
I love the written word so much, I know it's gonna flow naturally.
It's when we become afraid of everything and worried about everything that you are never going to reach your highest potential.
How terrible would it have been if I had come out with some watered-down version of who I am? People fell in love with the real me, and I still feel blessed that that was how the journey began.
I don't dream - only if I'm uncomfortable or I'm going through something.
You've got to love what's yours.
