Anna Maria performed at my Mama Nita’s funeral mass and, although it was a difficult time for our family, the beautiful music that came from Anna Maria’s harp lifted our heavy hearts and comforted all in attendance. I cannot rave enough about Anna Maria - from her mesmerizing talents to her outstanding professionalism to her graceful demeanor, she is more than amazing in every way. From the very first phone call, I felt at ease hiring Anna Maria to perform at such an important event. She assured me she would make my grandmothers services beautiful and that is absolutely what she did. On top of that, her knowledge of music is never-ending. I had very specific songs I wanted her to play and she knew them all like the back of her hand. She was knowledgeable in the procession of catholic masses. She even made it a priority to speak with the priest beforehand so that the music and the parts of the mass were seamless. I get emotional thinking about how incredibly beautiful her harp sounded in the church. I received so many compliments from family and friends in attendance. They were in awe of her talents. Without her, I truly believe the day would not have felt as special and perfect as it did. I can’t thank her enough for helping make the tribute to my grandmother everything I ever wanted. I know it’s exactly what my Mama Nita would’ve wanted. Anna Maria gracefully made a difficult day beautiful, and that’s not an easy thing to do. Hiring her for any event is the best decision anyone could make. I don’t recommend vendors or musicians lightly, and I will always recommend Anna Maria to anyone/everyone. You will not be disappointed. In fact, her music will stay with you always. Thank you Anna Maria for all you did to make my grandmother’s mass so incredibly beautiful.
