"In order to have a good time you have to work hard in order to be successful, and being kind to people should be a given. If everyone was a little bit nicer to people, the world would be a much better place. You have a choice where you can either be all right to someone or you can be a little bit nicer, and that can make someone’s day."
“We in the music industry, especially African American people, need to know our worth. We need to know as women we’re important. And I think the breakdown is when a woman doesn’t know who she is and she settle for less. Check out your worth because you’re worth more than that.” - Dr. Mable John (The Raelettes)
“Some people would do anything to be famous and then there are other people who just will sing, it’s not about anything expect being in this special space with people and that is really the higher calling to me” - Lisa Fischer
The legends many have listened to but many don’t know the names of. Music has changed over time but the importance for background singers can’t be ignored. One documentary that came out last year struck with me deeply. Grew up listening to so many records and didn’t know that some of the most important singers were uncredited or were replaced with actors lip-syncing (one of many cases being Shug Avery in The Color Purple, where Táta Vega is the one that’s really singing) and without them the songs would lose its emotion, its soul.
If you have the time I recommend seeing, and occasionally singing along to, Twenty Feet From Stardom. Currently available on Amazon.
"Singing background, it helped me find me, I got back to the love of music” - Táta Vega

I’m not married, I frequently use my debit card to buy things that cost less than three dollars, and my bedroom is so untidy it looks like vandals ransacked the Anthropologie sale section. I’m kind of a mess.
This makes me laugh a lot
