The song that made me want to be a singer: ”You Send Me,” Aretha Franklin
”Her version is so beautiful. I listened to that so much when I was a kid and just sang along and imitated it and did my best to keep up with her. I think I could sing from a very early age. I had a natural sort of ability to match pitch and just kind of…I knew how to sing. But I definitely had to find my own voice. When I was older, that came.”
