Favorite Quotes from Faith Evans

“I’m really an inner spirit that only makes itself known through the music. A lot of people think I’m an introvert, or quiet and moody. I’ve even heard some people say that there’s a certain mystery or darkness about me. I’m not that way. I’m just really into what I do.”

“Certainly, it is a blessing to have three beautiful kids who are all healthy. God put them here for me to nurture and bring them up and try to keep as close to right as I can. So, it’s a blessing. It’s a big responsibility, but at the same time it’s an honor.”

Tips for success from Faith Evans

“My business issues are just that – business – and I deal with them like they are business.”

“I guess you kind of got to realize that once you in a marriage, whatever it is, you gotta deal with it. Not necessarily that you got to accept it, but you have to deal with it and try your best to make it work for you, for the both of you.”

“I don’t look at myself as a celebrity. People recognize me, but it’s all about my music, my songs. It’s not like I’m a greater being. I take my kids to school, pick them up, go to the grocery store. I’m a mother, and my kids mean more to me than even being an artist.”
