No matter the pressure, and the stress of being under the microscope - she's humble, loving and sincere.

She builds and nurtures her family, while also looking out for so many millions in so many ways.

Timmy was born blind, and with cerebral palsy. But this never slowed him down - he has proven to everyone, that anything is possible if you believe in yourself and work hard."

Black Or White

"When I was just starting out, my first producer used to make me listen to michael jackson’s live performance of “who’s loving you”. He would have me watch that for hours back to back to back.

What he wanted me to learn was his soul. You could hear his soul. and he was this little kid who hadn’t experienced love but he was a vessel. for whatever reason he could evoke more emotion than an adult. It was so raw and so pure. It was these little things that he did that were just swag. It’s something that’s god given.

Michael taught me that sometimes you have to forget technique, forget what you have on. if you feel silly, you have to go from the gut just let it go.

Michael Jackson changed me, and helped me to become the artist i am - thank you michael.""

The film became a cult hit and the band has since released several albums and played several concerts. While promoting the film, Shearer was offered the chance to return to Saturday Night Live.
