1 The most beautiful thing is writing a great song and my goal is to make it to the Songwriters Hall of Fame one day. The other goal is to match or exceed Michael Jackson's charitable giving.
2 When I started out, I wrote the songs, recorded the songs, mastered, mixed, did the artwork, made the packaging and did the distribution, all myself. Now I understand what everyone's jobs are, who is doing them right, and who isn't.
3 I felt I had an opportunity to follow in the footsteps of great soul musicians of the past, who made a lot of social and political commentary through their music.
