I grew up listening to gospel. That was the only thing that I had reference to because that was what my family was involved with.
I grew up not really having anything, so the idea that I can take care of my family and my friends now is a really cool bonus.
I grew up poor in India, and there were days when we struggled to find food and other basic necessities. Our mother worked odds and ends jobs to keep the family together and educate us.
I grew up with music very much in my life. I achieved success by combining my training as an accountant with my family upbringing and love of music.
I guess what really forms you as a person is what you do within your family to receive love or attention. In my family, what you had to do to receive attention was to have good conversation at the dinner table or for me to do well at school, and those were really my focuses because that was what was valued the most.
I had a very supportive family environment that gave me room to explore and discover things about myself.
I hate the way they portray us in the media. If you see a black family it says they're looting, if you see a white family it says they're looking for food.
I have a full and satisfying life. My work and my family are very important to me.
I have a great family by the way, but you need to find people who can pull something out from you that might be otherwise unseen.

I have flown with British Airways since I was a very little child, so it feels quite special to have gone from family holidays flying around Europe to become a gold card holder and be spoiled enough to travel more than not in first class.
I have friends and family that are filled with massive amounts of integrity. And it shouldn't be an oddity.
I have had many more close women friends than men, and I've always assumed that comes from the fact that in my family there was such a disproportionate female element.
I have learned so many things from my mother about the right upbringing, the right values, value for money, value for elders, for family members. I think these things only a parent can teach you.
I have lived in Mumbai for more than 20 years, have my domicile here, my home and family here.
I have one friend that I've had since I was born, and she's from Coatzacoalcos. She's not really impressed or interested in the actor's life. My family isn't really either.
I have seen that the American Dream is a reality - and I would love to feel the British Dream is also a reality. To enable that, we have to bring back some common sense and encourage family values, a proper sense of justice and make people believe they have a decent chance to build a business or career for themselves. I see this moment as a fantastic opportunity to restore this, because I believe Britain Has Talent.
I have to protect my family and have a life with them that is completely private.
