Zitat des Tages von Martha Reeves:
A large family makes you accept sharing your parents.
I went from elementary school to proper training, operatic training, and I went on to the Motown University and learned a lot of things from some wonderful people.
I have always thought music as a way out of the ordinary mundane obligations of life.
I still marvel at how God turns dreams into reality.
After years of making wrong decisions in my life, in 1977 I found out that it was all right to be square, simple, and sober.
I worshipped Berry Gordy for the creative dreams he had made come true.
The world I was born into was one filled with music.
The morning after my high-school graduation found me up early job hunting. The dream of college I put on the back burner.
Good and bad - this is the story of my life.
You can't very well live in a castle while your kin is on the poor side of town and barely have enough food. Some want you to get to the top and rely on you making it for them, too.

Divas need their furs!
A song has to become as much a part of you as a tailored suit.
If you stick around long enough, people start referring to you as a survivor. Suddenly I found myself on the receiving end of several prestigious awards.
Detroit is full of talent.
I don't worry about being in a hurry any more, because my faith in God will always deliver me on time.
God uses singers in a mighty way, and I am grateful.
Berry Gordy turned his house into a studio and discovered over 30 acts in the city. And we're famous all over the world.

I was stranded in Disco. I went to dozens of darkened places with enough flashing lights to drive the average person mad. I felt lost in the pulse of sheer panic.
