Singer

Famous quotes containing the word singer:

    Commercial to the core, Elvis was the kind of singer dear to the heart of the music business. For him to sing a song was to sell a song. His G clef was a dollar sign.
    Albert Goldman (b. 1927)

    Now the nightingale, the pretty nightingale,
    The sweetest singer in all the forest’s choir,
    Entreats thee, sweet Peggy, to hear thy true Love’s tale:
    Lo! yonder she sitteth, her breast against a briar.
    Thomas Dekker (1572?–1632?)

    The question is not ... if art is enough to fulfill my life, but if I am true to the path I have set for myself, if I am the best I can be in the things I do. Am I living up to the reasons I became a singer in the first place?
    Kathleen Battle (b. 1948)
