You Got To Feel It Yourself

“With singing, the name of the game is to make yourself believable. When somebody hears you sing a song and they say, 'Oh, that must have happened to him,' that’s when you know you’re transmitting. It’s like being a good actor. You make people feel things, emotions, and whatnot. But you gotta start with yourself. You got to feel it yourself. If you don’t feel it, how do you expect someone else to?"

Ray Charles, musician
