I cantanti sono così vicini che Nicks, 72, ha aiutato Carlton, 40, venire a patti con quanto è grande la sua canzone di successo “Mille Miglia” è diventato dopo che è caduto dentro 2001.
While appearing on the PEOPLE Every Day podcast with Janine Rubenstein, Carlton revealed some sage advice Nicks gave her.
“Stevie Nicks, I have the great honor of calling her a very dear friend of mine — she’s really my mentor —and she said to me, this was years ago, lei disse, ‘Vanessa, do you think there is any show that I play that I’m not playing “Landslide”?'” Carlton recalled.
Il “White Houses” singer confessed the conversation completely changed her “perspective” about performing the popular song.
“If you’re going to get on a stage, you are doing a service,” Carlton explained. “You are meant to give yourself and create a show and give people an experience, in addition to having your own experience. Sai cosa intendo? So I think that that’s really what I was able to do.”
“Mille Miglia” was the top song from Carlton’s debut album “Be Not Nobody” and earned her a song of the year Grammy nomination among two others.
The Broadway star also confessed that she penned the tune for a crush she had while attending Julliard who later became a “famous actor” ed è “purposefully… not attaching a gender” to the person.
“It’s just about a crush I had when I was a teenager,” lei disse. “And I guess this has made some news cycles because I’ve never mentioned… the specific story, suppongo. I won’t really go into specifics, but it is about somebody who’s now very famous. Così, I can’t ever say. I never want to share it.”
