When I was young, I never bought records because my brother Joseph played saxophone and had a record player. I loved listening to his records: The Dorsey Brothers, Duke Ellington, all the big American jazz bands, and vocalists like Ella Fitzgerald, Ernestine Anderson, and Kitty White, a singer from the US who was a friend of Nina Simone. Nobody in America seems to know about her, but she was quite popular in South Africa.
...It is the supreme prayer, described the mother of the Vedas, named after its metre which means “the saviour of the Singer”, revealed to sage Vishvamitra. Gayatri is the mantra of the real Guru, the Omniscient God. The writers of the scriptures call it the “Soul of the Vedas’.
The mark of rank in nature is capacity for pain,And the anguish of the Singer marks the sweetness of the strain.
The sun and its light , the ocean and the wave, the Singer and his song not one. Not two.anthony de mello
Lithuanian baritone Vytautas Juozapaitis, last year's devilish, dark-toned Don Giovanni, Teatro Lirico has a powerful Singer with an impressive stage presence. Sparks flew because Vasileva and Juozapaitis created such emotional tension: she more nuanced than the usual submissive heroine, he more sympathetic than the stock villain.vytautas juozapaitis

I don't have a rock voice. I have to force it. I am like an opera Singer.Meat Loaf
I will sing no more songs: the pride of my country I sang Through forty long years of good rhyme, without any avail; And no one cared even as much as the half of a hang For the song or the Singer, so here is an end of the tale.Da i bh| dh OÅ Bruadair
Look not thou on beauty's charming, Sit thou still when kings are arming. Taste not when the wine-cup glistens, Speak not when the people listens, Stop thine ear against the Singer, From the red gold keep thy finger, Vacant heart, and hand, and eye, Easy live and quiet die.Lucy Ashton

Webster is not concerned with humanity. He is the poet of bile and brainstorm, the sweet Singer of apoplexy; ideally, one feels, he would have had all his characters drowned in a sea of cold sweat. His muse drew nourishment from Bedlam, and might, a few centuries later, have done the same from Belsen.john webster
[The country Singer] sings more sincere than most entertainers, because the hillbilly was raised tougher than most entertainers. The people who has been raised something like the way the hillbilly has, knows what he is singing about and appreciates it. For what he is singing, is the hopes, and prayers, and dreams and experiences of what some call the "common people." I call them the "best people," because they are the ones that the world is made up most of. They're really the ones who make things tick, wherever they are in this country, or in other country.hank williams

A professional entertainer who allows himself to become known as a Singer of folk songs is bound to have trouble with his conscience provided, of course, that he possesses one. As a performing artist, he will pride himself on timing and other techniques designed to keep the audience in his control [...] his respect for genuine folklore reminds him that these changes, and these techniques, may give the audience a false picture of folk music.sam hinton
The stars went out and so did the moon. The Singer stopped playing and went to bed While the Weary Blues echoed through his head. He slept like a rock or a man that's dead.langston hughes
With Vytautas Juozapaitis as a perfectly evil Don Giovanni, the Teatro Lirico d'Europa seduced an audience of about 850 at the Garde Arts Center Monday night. Juozapaitis, a Singer with the Lithuanian National Opera, stood out as the despicable title character of this most famous of Mozart operas. He took over the stage with both his supple and strong voice as well as a stage presence that seemed so natural it was hard to look at him without thinking he was Don Giovanni.vytautas juozapaitis
We covered "Hey Jude." My father panicked, misunderstanding the lyrics and thinking our lead Singer was belting out "Hey, Jew" to a roomful of Holocaust survivors.ben stiller
