Chris Carrabba

It was a lot of fun to be able to see things from another side. It was kind of nerve-wracking to sing at the audition, but it was OK. They've been very good to us, and Bart is probably just about one of the best people you could hope to work with in the theater business.

Henry Garza

I like bringing comedy to musicals. That's what's so much fun about this show, because the writers are so based in comedy. I've been able to make it dance and sing ? and keep building things ? in a way they're not used to. For me to be able to get people to laugh in dance is huge because it doesn't always happen.

I sing to the realists; people who accept it like it is.

I was a kid from Oklahoma who never wanted to be a singer, but was told I could sing. And things snowballed.

The families will all get free admission to the fair and show. And we've asked Miss Vincent to sing them the national anthem.

Bill Carpenter

The toughest question has always been, 'How do you get your ideas?' How do you answer that? It's like asking runners how they run, or singers how they sing. They just do it!

Lynn Johnston

The songs just sing themselves to me. They kind of write themselves. I just stand back and listen.

Cindy Walker

But I always really loved to sing and I felt like I should try to figure out a way to have more time for that in my life. It ended up being a career but I never anticipated that several years ago.

Laura Cantrell

I always loved to sing so I was going to be the singer. We were looking for a drummer and having problems finding one, so one time, I was messing around on the drums and they just taught me a simple drum beat. Ironically, it was the beat to 'I Love Rock 'n' Roll.' They said 'You can keep a beat and you can sing.' It's funny how things work out.

Laura Baca

Alan Lomax

I work on my voice through what I have to sing.

Bryn Terfel

Do it right or don't do it at all. That comes from my mom. If there's something I want to do, I'm one of those people that won't be satisfied until I get it done. If I'm trying to sing something and I can't get it, I'm going to keep at it until I get where I want it.

Ray Charles
