And come together as one we all can live together and deal. And I could relate -- too. The white characters in remember the titans because. That reflects my attitude like I don't care. We're all in this together and we shouldn't judge people by the color of their skin or. Or any other reason other than the content of their their character. And I -- that movie gave me chills love remember the titans. That's why it's so much because.

He showed me never to give up. Another one was rocky it showed that you shouldn't let people tell you. That you can't do. And that's I agree with that. You know I was I was discouraged in my career nobody. The odds were against me ever making it in this business. And I I hate in my voice I never thought it would make it in the spears is because of my voice. As to what people say it's -- -- your voice it just it to this day I I still have a hard time accepting that because I just I hated the way I sounds it.

It said scoot you're never gonna do that's. You're you're you're still in the morning Europe the DJ. Nobody's gonna ever except he was a talk show host. And I I I remember. I remember pulling out a whole notes album it was an album that that -- and was released it was an absolute bomb. And I thought if if this album. Influence if if they allowed the in the the lack of of an impact -- this album had on their career. Then they wouldn't have been really ended up being so I pulled out this -- of a disaster for whole -- that I thought this is my inspiration. And I love that message that don't ever let anybody.
