She admitted that she did find it hard at times to do music in keeping with what's popular at the time and that has often been a struggle between what she felt instinctively and what people wanted her to do.
Nevertheless, Corrine Bailey Rae has always able to find inspiration from within as she enjoys writing song and singing melodies. Being a singer has allowed her to travel to many different places to sing to many people she has never met before and being able to make them smile, makes her smile as she felt she's not going through the journey alone.

She shared tips to all aspiring performers on performing in front of large crowd, such as at a festival: there's no need to deliberately preparing one's emotional before performing at a festival such as SingJazz as such venue is all about the celebration of music and knowing such energy is out there would really help. It's important to believe in what you do and knowing that people who paid to watch you would have knew what to expect of you hence it's just for you to do what you need to do.
The British singer-songwriter who enjoys reading and has a passion for language, revealed that the songs that she wrote were partly designed deliberately to be poetic, partly accidental as she really enjoys making images, like stories with  memorable scenes in her songs.

Corinne credited her imitation of other singers during her younger days and later her exposure to the music of Kurt Cobain from Nirvana together with her introduction to Billie Holiday, coupled by the gift of an unusual voice and the importance of honoring her own experience in life have shaped who she is today. 
It was an inspiring session indeed.
