I simply thought, “What good am I here for right now?” You must keep those moments in mind. because that individual is no longer alive.

I had no sense of self-worth. I didn’t believe I was attractive. My voice was nothing in my mind, not even a thought. I merely thought. There are a lot of individuals who can sing; I don’t dance, and I’m not a model, but I’ll take any opportunity I can get. I’ll be the best under-the-bridge singer ever, even if I wind up performing anywhere.
