Emily, praising and raving about John's singing, wants to know when and how John developed his baritone voice.

John reveals what he did at age 9, because he loved singing and was too shy to perform a song in front of a roomful of relatives.

When Lerner's assistant discovered him, and Alan Lerner asked him to sing --  and he didn't sing well -- he was hired as understudy, standby for Richard Burton and Roddy McDowall. That inspired John to start studying with Seymour Osborne, the renown theatrical vocal coach whom Alan recommended.
