I have to say that when I first started singing, I didn’t think it was a very noble profession. I worked for people like Robert Kennedy and I thought: ‘Wow, that’s what it’s about.

I have a bit of a problem with ‘American Idol.’ Forgive me, but it’s difficult for me to watch. I can’t help but think of people being exploited. On the other hand, I’m really enjoying ‘Glee.’Lesley Gore
