I am a professional singer, specializing in opera, theater, and dance, and love entertaining people in a multitude of variety acts! Everything from pop-up (surprise) performances, planned concerts, character impersonations (Disney princess/iconic names) - you name it, I'm your gal! Contact me today!
I was not looking forward to hearing a soprano opera singer. She was amazing. Her voice was unbelievable. Her accompanist was fantastic, too. She was also fun to watch, since she acted out the character as she sung opera and theater tunes.
Response from Opera/Musical Theater Singer - Fun AND drama!:
Thank you for the wonderful review, Janet! This is SO sweet of you to share your thoughts about the concert, and we hope to entertain you again in the future!

I don't even know where to begin! We hired Christine to perform a couple of musical numbers for our guests and honor my aunt's birthday (she's a huge Le Mis and Phantom fan). She was professional, dressed the part and was so interactive with our guests. Communicated with me regularly and even suggested ideas for the performance that added a perfect touch. She added in a couple of surprise opera songs which really impressed our guests. Her vocal ability almost brought me to tears! We are now looking for excuses to have another party so we can hire her again! She really added to our celebration and the birthday girl has not stopped talking about her since! Thank you Christine!

Details are easy with me. I'll play along with whatever.
