I even done a doo-wop version of the Mickey Mouse march.
When I'm singing, I connect the dots with notes.
I've done all different kinds of genres - doo-wop, pop, funk, gospel, country, jazz, you name it.
I just sing what I feel in my heart. I ain't trying to prove nothing, and I don't think I ever did.
Without faith, I don't think I'd be here.
I didn't just get to 75 years by tiptoeing. I had to work hard sometimes.
I never really got paid for 'Tell It Like Is,' but I look back at it and say God knew what he was doing; he probably figured that if I had got money back in them days, I wouldn't be here now. That's okay. I'm here. And I'm still singing the song.
