02.08.11'Interview with Professional Opera Singer Lainie Diamond', by writer Bobbi Leder, is now up on Associated Content from Yahoo! Also featured in the February 2011 Houston Banner Newspaper-

"Lainie Diamond is not only a gifted professional opera singer... Read my interview to learn how she started, where she has performed, and how you can hear her sing...

When did you first start singing? Has music always been a part of your life?

I have been singing and have loved music for as long as I can remember. At about three years-old I especially remember sitting on the floor in front of a large music speaker, with my ear against it listening to the different musical lines sung by a singer and throughout a piece of music, whether it was pop or classical music."
