Personal Quote:

If I'm any good at all as a singer, a lot of it is due to something my father taught me. He once said, 'Margaret, you have a good voice, you certainly know how to sing. Now spend years in perfecting your craft. I hate to think of it as a craft. It's something I love to do, but it is a job, it is work, and we work very hard to write a song. You must sing this song with great affection and feeling.... See more »
