They are getting less and less through the years.

- Aleksey Igudesman

Unknown I Think

When you're from an unknown place, I think it's hard for you to believe it's possible. You think you have to go to L.A. or New York to make it, but I don't think that's true. I'm glad to be an example that you can make it from where you are. All you need is talent and hard work.

Devil Other

When you believe in God, you've got to believe in the all-powerful God. He's not just God, He's the all-powerful God and He has total control over everyone's life. The Devil, on the other hand, is a real character that's trying his hardest to tear your life apart.

Your Away

American Dream

I believe in the American Dream, because I've lived it.

- Ami Bera

Fiction Before

Team Olympic

I can't believe that I'm on the Olympic team.
