Rodney Smith on Talent:
I definitely think that every single human being has the potential to express their voice. The process of learning how to get in touch with it is very difficult and most people would much rather spend their energies talking about other things than think about the things that really complement or help them develop and nurture their own voice.
This relates to any artistic endeavor, whether it be music or painting, they will spend a lot of time learning or talking about the techniques that are immediately in front of them but not the deep psychological issues that make one person special and unique from one other.
Many people believe that one is born with talent and some people have it and some people don’t. I actually don’t believe that. I believe that everyone has the ability; because everyone is a human being and everyone has feelings. If they are able to express those feelings, than that is part of their talent.
