''One day I was at the office and a man approached me by the name of Ron Miller. He told me he had a song that he thought my voice would sound really good on. He played it for me. At the time, he didn’t realize, I had been going through a very bad marriage and hopefully divorce. The song spoke volumes to me. I felt like it was my life story. I felt close to the lyrics of the song. Ron, who is playing the tape for me, sat behind his desk and watched me cry so hard I could hardly breathe. I was so touched by the lyrics of the song.

''I’ve Never Been to Me'' was controversial. I got a lot of flack from women’s lib, saying, ‘How dare you say you need a man?’ ‘How dare you say you need a child?’. I was like: Oh, my God!'' - Charlene
''Ron called me in 1994, I’ll never forget it. He said, ‘Charlene, you will never believe what movie our song is in. You’ve got to go see it. It’s called The Adventures of Priscilla: Queen of the Desert.’ I’m like, okay. I went and saw it, not having a clue what it was. Oh, it was so fantastic. It was fantastic. I loved it.'' - Charlene
