"Creative Spotlight #239: Charmaine Clamor" from Marco Militeer with Japan Cinema

Charmaine: Embrace your uniqueness and use this to inspire your musical direction. I think all vocalists should not only take vocal technique classes but also learn how to play an instrument. It will make them a more fulfilled musician and performer. Practice, practice, practice. The journey is inward. All the praises and critiques are only noises. Go forcefully and yet gracefully on your path and master it. This is the key. Master your instrument and your repertoire.
