WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Joanne sang at our wedding recently, absolutely beautiful voice, she made our day so special and everybody was blown away by her singing. She sang our favourite song 'a thousand years' whilst playing the piano. Would highly recommend. Extremely talented lady !
"Our wedding day was how it should of been, surrounded by family, friends and extremely special, but what made it even more magical was Joanne's magical voice. She sang some beautiful songs whilst we were signing the register in the church that brought a tear to everyone’s eye! Then when we were sat down for dinner she softly sang Etta James's classic " At last".
I thank Joanne from the bottom of our hearts for making our day so Romantic. Fantastic lady with an incredible breath taking voice.
Joanne, you were amazing singing at Natalie and Patricks wedding in Greasby, we were absolutely thrilled listening to you singing Ave Maria and Pie Jesu as you could probably see we all had tears in our eyes. We would love to see you perform in anything.... I Can’t wait to see the video when it is complete.Thanks for reassuring Natalie when she was stressed out and sorting all the arrangements with the organist and the priest out xx
"Thank you so much for singing for us at our church blessing at St. Michael-in-the-Hamlet Church (Liverpool) on our wedding day. Your singing was so beautiful and moving, and it really was one of the highlights of our day. All of our guests commented afterwards about how amazing your voice was. You were a true professional beforehand as well and very easy to communicate with. Thanks again"
