She believes that what got her where she is today wasn't luck but talent. "What I do on record is what you get onstage," she says. "The producer doesn't have to use a computer to fix my voice or make me sound like a chipmunk."

Though she believes dancehall remains relevant, she is disappointed in the trend of musicians paying off disc jockeys to buy radio time and even awards. But she's willing to keep up with dancehall's changing musical direction. "In Jamaica, people are saying dancehall has changed, because a lot of people not been in the real dancehall rhythm. They're making it like hip-hop."

Though Hall continues to explore other genres, singing gospel is more personal for her. She hums it in the shower. Sometimes then, words come to her, and she sings, "And where do I go when my heart is broken? And where do I go when words are spoken? I fall on my knees and beg the Lord please."
