#Quote
1I am in the good position of not being able to make gestures with my hands, so my voice is the only form of expression that I have. This forces a huge concentration on the part of the audience. If you remain still and have only the face and the voice, the audience has to concentrate, much more so. So maybe it is also an opportunity.
2For me, my disability is a fact and not a problem. I'm not living the life of a disabled person. For sure, I have to handle some things differently from other people. I am in the lucky position that everyone can see it. If you are never happy, if you are only concerned about money or success, that is in my opinion also a kind of disability.
3A lot of young singers are pushed in seconds, maybe after one good role or one good concert, into the position of world star. It is very hard to hold the position, not only musically but also in terms of the profession.
