    Quote for the Day:

    "It was a glorious time and the best education I've had. We travelled to all nations, heard all tongues, and even hobnobbed with royalty.

    People don't know where I am and what I'm doing. I haven't lived a fairytale lifestyle for many years. I've been up and down - a rollercoaster it's been.

    It ('Dreamgirls') was really our story, but it's not true. Little things were true, but the true story has not been told yet."

    - Cindy Birdsong, Daily News.com interview, 2009.

    Quote for the Day:

    "We would be in there with the rhythm section, and singing at the same time that the rhythm section was putting their music down.

    Not only did you get the warmth and integrity of the vocals and instruments together, but the technical stuff didn't get in the way.

    That is the difference with (today's music), not that they haven't come up with something that is cool, with this digital stuff, but they are (told) to sing it one time, and then they just keep looping it. Where is the warmth in that? I think that we have lost something."

    Quote for the Day:

    "And Motown's reputation for being a family really grew around the way the artists worked with each other.

    We genuinely were a family of artists who looked after each other. While the producers were young people, just like we were - and they were basically experimenting on us. So it was like a school.

    Today, we're not in touch on a regular basis. But, whenever we do see each other, we're usually very glad, and there's a lot of embracing..."

    "I think that it's easy to become captivated by attention and by people's attention on you.

    I tried not to let that happen to myself. I don't think I ever got to a point where I was acting out to get attention, because that's not my nature.

    I do think that sometimes the people around you try to create circumstances to keep you in front of the headlines so that they can keep living off of your fame."

    Quote for the Day:

    "Stax closed and we were left without a deal.

    We went to New York and did some demos for the legendary Clive Davis. I was one of the first soul singers he signed. I was there before Whitney and Aretha.

    Clive said that if we could ever get the right material, we could get a hit.

    But he felt that the material was too Southern. He didn't want that Southern soul sound. He really wanted his female artists to cross over.

    But that wasn't my thing."

    Quote for the Day:


    "I connected with Chess Records through Oliver Sain.

    He had connections with the label and I got to meet Phil and Leonard Chess, and I went to Chicago to their studios on Michigan Avenue.

    It was just like a warehouse. The guy who played on my recordings, Maurice White, he was the drummer there.

    My first record was 'I Can't Stop Now' and I recorded that at the Chess studios.

    'Don't Knock Love' I recorded at Chess Records.

    Others like 'My Mama Told Me' and 'Think About It Baby' I recorded at Oliver Sain's studio at Natural Bridge in St. Louis, but it was still for Chess.

    The records didn't do too much."

    Quote for the Day:


    "Show business was very good to me.

    It gave me a lot of things and I was able to travel places I never would've been able to travel to.

    I was able to meet hundreds of thousands of people who I never would've met, but then there's a time when you have to say to yourself that it's all over now.

    To leave it like I did was probably the best thing for me because I wouldn't have been able to stand up under that kind of pressure in trying to keep the group together.

    It wasn't worth it to me because it could have cost me my sanity."

    Quote for the Day:

    "I don't think the company has a down on Jimmy and me. But you can't talk to them anymore, Berry's 3,000 miles away now.

    After 'My Whole World Ended' (a million seller!), the company chose the follow-up as 'I'm So Glad I Fell For You'. I was upset and I said that they were sending me back to Church!

    Things are a little better now, though, and I'm just working on a new album with Smokey Robinson that I am really happy with.

    My new single 'You Can Come Right Back To Me' comes from that session, and I like it.

    I've still got a few months left on my contract and I'll sit still until then, at least."

    Quote for the Day:

    "Well, what happened is when I went into the service, the most popular band, of course, was Glenn Miller. So the logical thing for me to do was to use some of that styling of music, along with some of his arrangements and songs. That, overseas especially, reminded the kids out there more of home than anything else.

    I remember one time we were playing on Okinawa, we'd play one song, they'd be cheering.

    We'd go into a pretty ballad, and you'd see tears in their eyes.

    It was the sound of the Glenn Miller band.

    So when we came out of the service, we incorporated the sound of the Miller band and my trumpet and the trombones a la Dorsey.

    And with the combination of all three, we had sort of formed a sound of our own."

    Quote for the Day:

    "I take a segment of life.

    Like, one night I went to the Peppermint Lounge and just wrote down what was going on around me. Out of it came 'Twisting The Night Away'.

    I use phrases people say each day. Once I heard a guy saying 'Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody'. That gave me an idea for a song.

    At a party I heard a kid say 'Everybody cha-cha-cha'. That gave me another idea.

    I keep my ears open."

    Quote for the Day:

    "There have been so many crazy incidences like that.

    Industry people had a big party for us at a huge country mansion.

    The only other black people at the party were the cook and the servers.

    So the Pointer Sisters showed up, and the door people assumed we were servers too, and sent us to the back door. Our manager had a fit about that.

    I guess with any job or career, a black person could be confronted with racism and prejudice. It's always shocking and disturbing. But what can we do?

    I don't know if America will ever get it right before I'm gone.

    Maybe in another lifetime, people will understand that we are all people, and we should love everybody.

    Quote for the Day:

    "It was a thing of the record companies here in New Orleans, running people through a lot of changes.

    The companies weren't really paying us the way they should have been. Most of the artists in New Orleans were recording because they loved to sing, but really didn't make much money.

    For example, 'Tell It Like It Is' was a national hit, but I never got anything but a session payment on that."

    Quote for the Day:

    "I would cringe every time the song ('Love Makes The World Go Round') came on the radio.

    I'd think 'God, I don't like that'. And I wrote it, too.

    I just don't like that song.

    Hey, maybe I didn't like it - I mean, it bugged me - because I wrote it so fast (about four minutes), and put it aside so fast, and then it sat around for a year before it was released.

    I guess I figured it shouldn't be worth anything. It was too easy.

    It kind of gets to me to do it.

    But I do it..."
