Elaine is a true living legend in her own right, but she also has a rare gift for connecting with people on all levels, including her music-- that is the magic!
We had the good fortune to meet Elaine at our dear friend, Chris', annual Christmas party years ago swinging to her lovely voice. Years later, as my husband and I decided to get married, we looked no further than Elaine to set the mood for our special day on another friends' farm in Michigan. We asked her to perform for both the ceremony and reception-- two different experiences we wanted to create. Elaine met with us several times before the date to make sure everything was just right. She also recruited an amazing band-- trumpet, keyword, bass, and percussion-- to back it all up. She created a custom arrangement for our ceremony and allowed another friend of ours to perform "Just Breathe" with her. It was electric and gave everyone goosebumps. Later-- she allowed me (the amateur) to perform with them with my Tenor Sax. What a thrill!
From all the pictures throughout the day, everyone was smiling throughout. Elaine brought the music, the mood, and the joy to it all. Magic. We were so blessed to have had her perform for us, but even more to consider her a dear friend for life.
