Nobody thought I could do anything with a singing career… except my singing teachers, who were accustomed to hearing voices that could be transformed into something.Barbi Benton
After three months of singing, Hef heard me practicing once. He tried to convince me to quit singing lessons because there was no chance of being good at it. Of course, I cried a lot when he said that, but it was my money that I was investing in lessons so I continued partly out of spite and partly because I really wanted to do it.Barbi Benton
