She showed up early to set up, looked professional in a beautiful gown. She is an amazing young talent who was willing to go further by learning new songs to honor my brother's taste in music. She played her harp better than I even expected playing the Beatle's, Eric Clapton songs including a tribute to my brother; Led Zep "Stairway to heaven". Everyone was so moved by her playing, just brought tears to my eyes. She was worth every penny and more!
