New favorite quote, from the movie 20 Feet from Stardom:
"In these times that we're living in right now, a lot of it is based on so many other things and they have nothing to do with music.
But, you know, at the end of the day, it's up to you to perfect that gift that you've been given.
Put your spirit into that song. Focus on the words that you're singing. Get into the experience of what you're singing about and sing your heart out."
-- Stevie Wonder
