Reviews

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your performance at our wedding. Janet and I, and every single person there, commented on your lovely voice. We all enjoyed every song. We thought you were brilliant. We could not have done better. We wish you every success in the future, and if any occasion occurs, I would not hesitate in booking you again. 

5/5

Wedding

 
Amy ticks all the boxes. First and foremost, she has a beautiful pitch perfect voice. As Simon Cowell once said about an artist – “She could sing the phone book” This girl is seriously talented, has great stage presence and without doubt, that virtual indefinable quality that sets her apart. On top of all this, she is totally endearing, charming, beautiful and utterly delightful. Everybody was enthralled with her performance and I have already booked her again for next year. If you want the best for a guaranteed successful occasion, it’s the easiest and best decision you will ever make
