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.

I will prepare myself with any and all music requests, as well as recommend music for specific events if needed. I am very personable and will make your gathering that much more enjoyable. I can be large and soulful with a rock or gospel piece, subtle and soft with a jazz tune, grand and impeccable with a classical opera piece, or fun and witty with an up-beat hip hop or broadway piece.
