Regina Belle is forever grateful. The singer spoke to AV and Sky Houston at Majic Under The Stars 2018 to tell us about how she was inspired by legends like Patti LaBelle and Aretha Franklin because they looked like her, how God is her sustaining power and more.
“God has been my sustainer,” Belle said. “He’s kept me … it’s been an amazing ride. Mother’s Day made 31 years in the industry and that doesn’t include my two years with The Manhattans singing background with them. I’ve been out here a long time and I always tell my audience that I’m grateful cause you never read about me talking to myself or doing all the crazy stuff. Don’t mean I haven’t done any crazy stuff, y’all just ain’t heard about it.”
She continued, “It’s been my honor to hold my position and try to live the life I try to sing about and I want other people to relish and respect. It’s a great honor to be in this position to be here this long. I don’t take that for granted. So I got to live right!”
