About Nicolette

From Marilyn Monroe's "Diamonds" or "Happy Birthday" to Country or Opera, I can sing anything you would like. I am professionally trained and have a lot of stage experience. I am recording artist with my own country album and am working on a Broadway and Blues CD. I sing at weddings, funerals, events, and anywhere. I work during the day and can occasionally make a lunch time performance. Most evenings after 5 and weekends available. Less than 24 hrs notice will incur $25 extra charge.

Super job! She was flexible, worked with our off-beat idea, and did an amazing performance. What a pro!

Opera singing telegram

By Carol D. on January 21, 2017

Nicolette 's has a beautiful voice, with a warm and welcoming personality! My mother was truly blessed and came to tears hearing her sing Happy Birthday in Opera! My only disappointment was that I selected from the pictures on website for her to appear in a formal dress as a performer. It would had been excellent to have Opera attire to arrive in, but I was content with the formal dress. Nicolette said she would be coming by after work, I assumed she change clothes for the performance. She arrived in business casual and that was the only disappointment. I would hire her again, but confirm that the choices on website to select from would be honored.

My parents are still raving

By Jared F. on December 14, 2016

I live in Colorado but wanted to give this experience to my dad for his 75th birthday. Nicolette was amazing. I asked her if she would do some Patsy Cline songs (dad's fav) and she listed off his 3 favorite songs. She showed up at his party and surprised him and delighted the guests with her gorgeous voice. My dad is just about impossible to buy gifts for and this one is going to be tough to top. Thanks, Nicolette!

Great Experience with Nicolette

By Patricia P. on March 8, 2015

We requested Nicolette Erwin to do a singing telegram performance as Marilyn Monroe at the 30th anniversary celebration for the Texas Association for Mediators (TAM) in San Antonio. Specifically, we wanted to recognize the outgoing President with a surprise. Nicolette dressed as Marilyn in a platinum wig, white dress and high stiletto heels. During the Presidential lunch and member meeting, Nicolette performed to Frank Sinatra's "My Way" by changing the words to Your Way. She was very, very talented from her beautiful voice to how she performed as she strolled through the ballroom floor. Everyone thoroughly laughed and enjoyed the memorable moment. She used improv to bring in certain things she heard behind the scenes in the President's outgoing message and sauntered up to the stage to "play" a bit as we said goodbye to our President. Thank you Nicolette. We would highly recommend Nicolette not only as a singing telegram but for any singing event as her voice is beautiful.

Nicole was great! She offered to Skype event for me, since I'm on the East Coast and the event was in San Antonio. She kept in contact with me before, during and after singing to my friend. I have already discussed future events with her.
