Nobody has a perfect anything. We don't have perfect lives. We're not perfect beings.
I'm a people lover. I love interacting with different people as I meet them, and I think people are one of God's greatest creations, I really do. They're interesting and intriguing.
Soul is just that inner spirit. I use that inner spirit for whatever it is I do.
Mary J. Blige has made the most improvement, to me, and the depth of the spirit and the soul in her music, the way she sings, gives her that 'it' factor.
I am a Barack Obama fan from head-to-toe - always have been. He's not perfect; nobody is going to be that way.
I have a squash casserole that everybody, even my kids, love. I won't tell my kids how to make it.
Love is what makes the world go around. I know it's a big cliche to use, but it is the absolute truth. There is nothing else like it. I know that is what everybody is striving to feel: in relationships, in brother- and sisterhood, and in all of the things that we aspire to have in our lives.
I had some great mentors as I was coming up and starting to sing so early - I've been singing since I was four. I had people telling me how to preserve myself.
I don't regret any decisions I've made in my life.
I always kind of thought I want to be a good person, I want to be right to my fellow men and love them like we're supposed to.
That's part of your life lesson to be afraid. The bigger question is how you deal with being afraid. Do you have to summon courage or something else to live with that fear without letting it take you over?

God is gracious enough to let us know, in due time while we're here and the fact that I'm still around and I'm still singing, it is really to his glory.
I have a faith that's unbendable as far as my Lord and Savior is concerned.
I have a choir in my church, and we travel all over the world.
When I was on Arsenio Hall's show, he asked me about working with Kanye West or John Legend. I said I'd love to.
I go to as many football games as I can.
Most people who ask me what's my favorite song, expect that it's 'Midnight Train' or 'Neither One of Us.' But actually, it's always kinda been 'The Need to Be' because of what it says. I love the way that song was written, I love the melody, I love everything about it.
We all have a responsibility, and since I've been so wonderfully blessed, I really want to share and to make life at least a little better. So every chance I get to share the gospel or uplift people, I will take full advantage of that opportunity.
Well, I never danced with the 'Pips' - they didn't let me dance!
