“There was a young lady up on stage with us at the end of a concert recently and she was hugging us so tight and telling us she loved us and that we were her sisters. We’re honoured to be in a position to invoke such passion. It’s a magical experience and so very humbling at the same time.”

“After a while crazy becomes normal and we’ve learned that we have a license to be divas and to kick some butt when necessary!
