Studdard speaking to his coach Dolvette Quince and Dr. Huizenga said, “I am afraid. I have seen a lot of lives cut short because of health issues. I’ve worked since I was 11-years-old to be a professional singer. That’s all I ever wanted to do.”
Studdard continued, “I most definitely want to be around for a long time. This has really, like, given me a second chance.”
