When I began singing, it was the first time I was happy in my life. As a baby, I would stop crying when I heard a great singer.
Every audience has its character; I like America - they love me. I suffer from stage fright, but in America not so much.
I don't have an extraordinary degree of self-confidence, but I know the gift I have been given from God and I try to share it with as many people as possible. Having a great voice is not a merit. I don't think it is a merit.
I also always carry my flute. It's very important for me to try to relax when I'm travelling, and playing my flute helps me to unwind.
