Aaron Neville 3

My mother turned me onto St. Jude back in the days when I was wild and crazy. She took me to the shrine on Rampart Street.
Aaron Neville

I think St. Jude helped me achieve some miracles in my life – that’s why I wear the medallion in my left ear and never take it out.
Aaron Neville

I am very honored and excited to have ‘Devotion’ released as the first DVD Audio disc… surround sound is amazing… The music comes alive and is so vibrant – it’s unlike anything you’ve ever heard before!
Aaron Neville

I don’t want to be on the road all my life.
Aaron Neville

Singing is a prayer to me.
Aaron Neville

New Orleans will always be in my heart. New Orleans raised me – it’s in my blood.
Aaron Neville

You try to do what you can to bring harmony wherever you go.
Aaron Neville

When I’m singing, it’s a mixture of my innocence in the projects, my mom and dad. It’s all the good and the bad, the laughs and the frowns that I went through and seen other people go through. Then you be trying to write it. Whatever’s coming out, you try and make it all cool.
Aaron Neville

I never left doo wop.
Aaron Neville

My brothers and I would sit out on the park bench and harmonize.
Aaron Neville

Man, I was scared. I didn’t know what to think. All of a sudden, I got a record climbing the charts, and I’m out in the streets. You know, workin’ on the docks. And the first week, it sold something like 40,000 in New Orleans.
Aaron Neville

When I sang, I couldn’t help making those little curves. People would say, ‘Why don’t you sing straight?’ But I have always had to put something in.
Aaron Neville

Working with the brothers can put pressure on my voice, so I choose to do my own solo thing so I can save my voice. I couldn’t do both now. The Neville Brothers is a funk band; they play loud, and I have a strong voice.
Aaron Neville

Beyonce is cool, and she can really sing.
Aaron Neville

I dig Steve Harvey: he’s the suit man. I be checking him out.
Aaron Neville

Being at the Apollo, I was always starstruck.
Aaron Neville

I’m waiting for them to come up with a ‘Star Trek’ thing so they can beam me from my house to the gigs and back.
Aaron Neville

When I first went out on the road with Larry Williams, there was also, like, The Coasters, The Drifters, and The Flamingos.
Aaron Neville

I remember going up and doing ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ with Paul Simon, Santana playing up there with us.
Aaron Neville

You never know how much time you got.
Aaron Neville

In New Orleans, music is part of the culture. You’re raised with it, from the cradle to the grave, and all in-between.
