First off, I had no idea the voice of Elmo, Kevin Clash, was a big black guy! He is truly a man who stuck with his passion, and even when people made fun of him or didn’t believe in his dream of being a puppeteer, he still pursued it. That’s what I love about this documentary.
Work hard, never quit – the rest will work itself out.
Being Elmo was delightfully entertaining and I truly recommend it for anyone of any age.
“If everybody else your age is doing something very different than what you’re doing, there’s always going to be someone saying to you you might not succeed, you might not make any money with that, there’s always going to be some type of obstacle in the way. All of those things will go away if you really focus on what makes you happy.” – Kevin Clash
