The Best Surprise of a Surprise Party

By Scott S. /. H. G. on November 22, 2013

A woman appears that I do not know, what is already the most amazing surprise event thrown for me. Karla stopped the event the way only great talent can. Aside from her extraordinary voice and performance, Karla discovered and rendered performances on songs from my life. That care to discover, that boldness to interpret anew moments of my past, made a night to remember – a night to never forget. This is an astonishing woman of great grace and talent.

Karla Brought Down The House!

By Maria H. on January 31, 2013

I'd seen Karla perform in and around LA and thought her presence and powerful voice would be a great addition to our Gala Fundraiser.

Well, I was correct and blown away as usual! Our guests were absolutely delighted and wanted more. Karla is very good at reading her audience, she's very personable, has a great stage presence and her voice is AMAZING!

Thank you for an amazing night!

Amazing Singer

By Michele V. on December 27, 2012

Karla's voice is amazing! I hired her for a marriage proposal to sing the song "Perfect". She was on time and professional and did everything right. She even improvised and played only her guitar when our client was proposing even though she wasn't instructed to, and then went right back to singing when the girl said yes. I would hire her again for sure!

Hired as: Jazz Singer

My husband and I were celebrating our previous tiny destination wedding with friends and family in an afternoon, backyard garden party of 50-60 people. I desired live music that would be suitable for a party with ages ranging from a small handful of children to grandmothers: something everyone would enjoy. I sent out a bulletin through GigSalad and Karla was one of the responses. Off the bat she was extremely professional, and after listening to some of the sample performances she provided I knew she was perfect for our event. Smooth and sensual voice, a great set list of both classic and contemporary R&B favorites and originals. Her pricing was beyond reasonable for her level of talent.

After booking, she was very communicative in making sure she could provide what we needed, even asking if there were particular songs we wanted her to play. I got the sense that if a song had been special to us, but not in her immediate repertoire, she would have learned it.

The day of the event she was very self sufficient in setting up and began playing right on time. Her voice and presence just added a really special ambiance for the already beautiful day. She was both engaging and non obtrusive, which was ideal for an event where family and friends were also chatting and catching up. She perfectly picked up on our cue for a casual tone for the party, while I also believe she could easily offer a more formal presentation. I've been at parties where the performer sort of takes over and people have to go hide in corners to interact with one another, and this was not the case with Karla: her music just flowed through the party naturally. Although, when she played Nina Simone's "Feeling Good" (my husband's favorite song) I embarrassed him by pulling him out into the middle of the party to slow dance. :) Such a fun moment!

All of my guests exclaimed how much they enjoyed her performance, the day would not have been the same without her. Further, she was professional, warm, and graceful when interacting with everyone.

I would strongly recommend Karla for really ANY special event: large or small, day or night.

Karla performed at my spoken word venue One Mic Wednesdays, and everything about her performance was better than stellar. Karla is professional, on time, and very talented. She knows what her audience wants & she gives it to them every time. I would definitely hire her again.
