    k.d. lang is on The Rex Chapman Show with Josh Hopkins for an extensive conversation about her love of basketball, and the Portland Trail Blazers in particular, as well as her career in music. "Singing is an extension of your soul," lang says. "It was about opening up my true self. I don't think I would be a really good singer if I was trying to conform into a social idea of who I should be. I wouldn't sing the same." You can watch their conversation here.
