Olyvia sang for our Mothers funeral . She is a real professional and talented Soprano . She relieved our family and coordinated music , pianist so we did not have to worry about these details.
Her voice is heavenly and her rendition of Ave Maria for the Mass of Christian Burial brought tears to many of us . She exudes compassion and was extremely flexible .
Response from Olyvia R. Askew - Soprano:
Thank you so much. Your family will always hold a special place in my heart. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of honoring your mother’s memory.
Olyvia presented herself very professionally. I enjoyed her beautiful vocals especially in the very spacious church where she sang for us. Thank you.
Response from Olyvia R. Askew - Soprano:
Thank you so much! It was my pleasure.
I was bringing my mother home to NY to be interned with my father. Knowing how much my mother loved music I reached out to Olyvia to sing at the service. She was so very gracious and kind in helping me arrange this. She performed three songs; each and every one was absolutely beautiful. Her voice is one of the most beautiful I have heard. Each and every person in attendance commented on the beauty of her voice and said it was a “perfect” way to
Honor my mother. I can’t thank Olyvia enough for sending my mother home in such a wonderful way! I would recommend her to anyone who wants the ‘perfect’ presentation via song.
Olyvia was easy to work with through the booking and extremely flexible with our requests. She sang acapella, accompanied, styles from operatic to gospel to spiritual to '60s R&B. If you closed your eyes you might think you were in the room with Rene Fleming, Jessye Norman, Etta James, even Judy Garland. An amazing talent. We could not have been more pleased.
Olyvia was professional, timely, and able to work with an organist who was assigned at the last minute. Olyvia has a beautiful voice and is very talented. Thanks for making our event so special.
Olyvia is an amazingly talented singer. She was a delight to work with, Extremely professional,and has a great personality. She performed at a charity Christmas event for the homeless shelter in Albany, NY. The patrons were delighted by the up beat performance and uplifting song choices. She not only is an exceptionally gifted singer she has a great heart. I definitely recommend her for any events and would be willing to work with her again in the future.
Olyvia Askew is insanely talented singer and musician. Her professionalism and sheer raw talent make her the obvious choice for any event.
Olyvia was born to sing. Her voice is like a angel. There is nothing this young lady can not sing. You name it she can sing it. My personal opinion: she can sing songs of the pros and do a better job at it than they do. Every time I get a chance to hear her sing, I get right to it. Even being a few hours away from her, I still manage to go hear her sing. This young woman is so good, there are no words to describe her voice. If you want to hear one of the best singers, you should definitely hire her. She is amazing.
I have had the pleasure of working with Lyv on two seperate occaisions. People love her energy, mind blowing performance and stylings. She truly has a wide range from Contemporary to Classic and the flexibility to accomodate to your own repertoire as well. She has been an absolute pleasure and a stellar team player and we look forward to working with her again in the future.
Olyvia's angelic voice was majestic as she sang from the balcony of the Historic St. Mary’s Church. Her performance of “Ave Maria” had everyone moved and in tears. This beautiful woman’s talent is rare… It can not only be heard, but felt within our hearts.
Several guests are still raving about her memorable performances. At the beginning of my opera singer search, I had never imagined how blessed we would be to have Olyvia come in to the lives of me & my family. Not only is she extremely professional, but super accommodating. She’s become great friends with our daughter (bride) and I see a wonderful lifelong friendship to come. I strongly recommend Miss Olyvia for anyone’s future hire.

Whichever event you're hosting, it's all about you and your guests. Therefore, I will try my best to accommodate any and all requests, with a promise of satisfaction.
