Leah was absolutely amazing to work with. I wanted a very rustic bluesy type theme engagement party. Nothing too loud very just laid-back. She was so great that the venue even asked me for her info so they can add her to their list. One of the first compliments out of everyone’s mouth was how amazing the band was. Thank you guys so much for making it such a special evening. Anyone who hires them will not be disappointed!!
From the moment I contacted Leah, she was incredibly energetic, engaging and a delight to work with. I was looking for a duet to perform at my parent's surprise Anniversary and was hoping to find talented singers that were willing to learn some of their favourite songs to mark the occasion. Leah was incredibly flexible and said that she would be able to accommodate - not only finding a partner, but learning the songs in a limited period of time. Given it was my first event to book, she was also very helpful in guiding me through the process and responding to all of my questions quickly. What a beautiful talent and person - and a great experience!
LEAH...is a SUPERSTAR. She is so worthy of praise.. a FABULOUS job at my mom's funeral. She was our Diana Ross. I hope she is available for a happier occasion. She was graceful.. humble... helpful... thoughtful.... PERFECTION. My family and guess loved ❤ ♥ 💕 💗 💖 her so much. God sent an Angel and bless us with melodies .... a voice from heaven. Thank you so much, Leah. Thank you 😊.
Leah was AMAZING!! We had a last minute booking, and Leah was kind enough to accommodate all of our requests and needs. She was punctual, professional, and kind to everyone! Everyone loved her, she was great!! Thanks, Leah!!
So I was looking for a male singer to sing 2 songs to someone I cared about and good not be with on her birthday. Leah had answered my ad not knowing I needed a male. When I responded that I wanted a male singer she replied she would help me find one. And she did quickly. I hired Timothy Smith. My girl and all her friends loved him. Thought he was great and wanted to know if he was single. Very reliable and he did a great job I saw the video. So thank you to Leah and Tim.
Leah was great to work with, she was on time and prepared every single week. She has a great spirit and attitude about her, always willing to serve and help those around her. Her voice is beautiful and she plays the keys very well. We loved having her lead at our church while she lived in Boston.
Leah was our musical guest at our wedding. She performed a beautiful spanglish rendition of "Stand By Me". We were very impressed by her musical abilities and also how she fluently sang in Spanish. Definitely a wonderful addition to our special day! Thank you so much!
It was an absolute pleasure having her bring her voice and style to Taste of Soul NC in July of 2019. Her energy was amazing and she had the voice to match. Everyone enjoyed her selection of songs and she was a joy to work with. A true Professional Artist. Highly recommended for any event. She is a crowd pleaser.
Ms. Leah Hinton was the main attraction at the 2019 Jazz Appreciation Month (JAM) event at the Henderson Institute Histirical Museum in Hendrrson, NC. She was such an excellent performer that she was booked again for the 2020 JAM event in April. You will not be disappointed with her performance!
