  • Katharinfinite

    I belive, from listening to the answer Kate Gave that the question was " how did your parents/ family feel about you developing your musical career, as your “job” as they may have seen it "- emotionally? " or words very similar , maybe less eloquently that my guess ;) as Catherine was an amazing musician from a very early age they may have asked such a question with concern, yet her parents, did provide a lot of emotional support. So yes " how did your parents feel in your younger days being suddenly involved with EMI or such allusion -to this guess of mine. :)
