Lloyd: The showmanship grew and that was my first real introduction to the stage, doing shows for like 2,000 people one night and twenty people the next night and you have to give the same energy for each show. It taught me to treat everything like it is the big bang. When you stay ready you are always ready--that was our motto. That was the beginning of it for me.
Lloyd: (About singing) It was that powerful to me that I just took a liking to it and I decided to just really try to perfect it.
Lloyd: I knew how to sing before I learned how to talk and I knew how to dance before I learned how to walk. Its just in my blood.
