Robin Johannsen (soprano from the US)
To earn my livelihood by singing opera is a great joy and a privilege. Every time I get up onstage, I'm aware of how lucky I am. We always hope that we touch somebody and move them. Then, on top of that, to have the chance to do something good for other people in a concrete way is an even greater privilege. Expressed in selfish terms, doing good makes you feel very good about yourself.
