Ben Peck,

I was really impressed by her I invited her to sing for my birthday party and Wow! Everyone did really enjoyed her performance! There is something in her' voice that really touches your soul. She is more than what you might expect from a function singer. She pours emotion into her songs, and you can't help but be captured. Her' voice ranges from dark and sultry blues to frenzied hard rock and back to smooth, polished jazz as well as swing. She's just unique as well as being a lovely young woman. I will definitely book this superb singer again in the future! Don't miss her!

Richard Upton,

A very big thank you for your wonderful singing last night! Everyone later was taking about your lovely voice and how it made a great evening. The evening did better than we had hoped, and we made over £1k profit for the charity. We had to push people out of the door in the end, and are just going back now to tidy up. Your singing made it!

Dave Rushton,
