Music Producer / Corporate Event
I discovered Oya's talent while listening to clips on her SpiritofOya Website.
After viewing her clips I knew that I had found the voice for the corporate event in San Francisco. After
speaking with her for a few minutes not only did I know she had the powerful voice we were looking for I also learned of her beautiful energy. I knew our audience of 500 + people would be in for a musical and inspirational treat. I was right! Oya sang beautifully and really got the energy going! The audience all stood up and joined in clapping and singing with her and the musicians. Oya is a beautiful entertainer and a very special person.

First I would like to say I’m thankful for the ability that God has given you to connect with people. You're professionalism is outstanding. You knew what I needed to make our company 25th anniversary a success! The songs you sang with such powerful delivery filled the room with so much joy and inspiration! The positive words you spoke during your performance were heartfelt and your willingness to share others individual talent is just awesome. The President of the company is still getting wonderful feedback from her guest.
I hope I have the chance to have you come back to Michigan to do something else. You are truly a blessing.

Working with Oya was an experience I will always cherish. Not only is her voice captivating and powerful, but she is an intelligent, confident, funny, and postive woman. She is a phenominal artist with incredible work ethic. The emotion the she emits AND evokes while singing has a universal timelessness while her voice itself is very unique. I very much look forward to working with Oya again in the future. She has an amazing gift. My highest recommendations to anyone who wants to experience/share something extraoridinary.

If there is possibly a 6 stars rating, me and my wife would give it to her in a blink of an eye. Right from the beginning, there was a certain warmth and great over-all professionalism from Oya. And more than just a great voice, she is able to relate to the audience and to us as a couple in a very comfortable level(my friends and families were raving about her). She not only was a great performer on the event, but became a friend. If you want a CLASS A performer, there is no need to look around. She is the ONE. Good thing we did.

From the moment I spoke to Oya on our first pre telephone interview, I knew that she would not only be an amazing asset to my party, but that she was very accommodating to what I wanted. Her performance was amazing, her voice is truly a gift from God, that lifted everyones spirits. I would use Oya again and reccomend her to others that want that special touch to any event. Thank you Oya you are wonderful!!
Oya, electrified the place! What a way to end a 27 year career! Imagine that it was just her! I am already planning on hiring her again soon and have her bring her band next time. My next event can't come fast enough!
Forever a Customer,

For the bride and groom looking to entertain their guests with a sweet sounding, melodic voice, Spirit of Oya is the songstress for you! I've had the pleasure of witnessing Oya capture the attention of audiences by singing sultry lyrics as the bride walks down the aisle to meet her husband-to-be, as guests mingle during cocktail hour and even during receptions. She has the ability to gain the attention of the audience and demand them to tap their feet and bob their heads. Whether she's accompanied by one of her renown guitarist, trio, quartet or band, the Sprit of Oya has the right entertainment match for your event. If you're looking to enhance your event entertainment and give your guests something to remember you can count on the Sprit of Oya as a wonderful addition to your wedding day.

Groom of Wedding
Wow, where do I begin? Oya provided the perfect musical element to my wedding ceremony. Given that my initial singer fell through, I first contacted her only a week prior to the event. She was traveling overseas at the time, but still promptly returned all of my emails and graciously agreed to perform. She was incredibly personable and spent a good deal of time getting to know me, learning about my relationship with my fiancee, and discussing my musical preference in an effort to identify the perfect song. In the end she actually customized the lyrics for a wonderful song that left all of our guests spellbound. Her voice is magnificent and she is a true professional.

Oya is punctual, precise, and has impressive work skills. She is dependable and always brings creativity, positive energy, and talent to the table.
She recently shared those talents for a national campaign event of ours called “Peace in the City”. It was hosted by the University of Southern California. Oya sang with me and Patrice Rushen who was our music director for the evening. It was a successful event and would not have been complete without Oya’s involvement.

I hired Oya to sing at my mother's birthday party. We were all blown away. Her voice is so powerful and beautiful. It was such a heartfelt song and we were all moved. I wanted a special way to let my mom know how much I love her on the deepest level and Oya sang from the heart and touched my mother's and everyone's heart there. In addition, she is so professional and sweet. I would recommend her and hire her again anytime I need a singer.
"Oya was a standout performer at my event! Her voice is so smooth and powerful at the same time. And her stage presence is second to none. The audience was really engaged and they raved about her for weeks to come. My event would have not been the same without this majestic and beautiful woman. I would love to work with her again and again!"
