I recently hired Samir to sing a selection of Broadway showtunes at my wedding. This was a surprise for my husband who is a huge Broadway show fan. I was completely blown away when I heard Samir's demo and then in person he was even more amazing!! He has incredible talent and stage presence and entertained our guests. So many of them have asked me where I found him and commented about how fantastic his performance was. We can't stop watching the video.
Samir is also very professional, really listened to what it was I wanted and put together a performance that was EXACTLY what I envisioned. He really made our reception so special and memorable. DO NOT hesitate to hire him for any event. You absolutely will not be sorry!!!
Samir came to surprise my father during his wedding reception, and sang a few of his favorite numbers. As soon as he realized what was happening, my dad stood up and started singing along. It was great! Everyone was surprised to have a little extra dinner entertainment, and Samir put on a hell of a good show. He talked to the crowd and made sure everyone enjoyed his presence. Would recommend for weddings, absolutely!
I had booked Samir for my wedding and was so happy I did. I didn't know much about music for weddings and after sending him my readings he was able to put together music that was both classic but different. He came to my rehearsal the night before to just ensure he would be all set the day of. On the actual wedding day Samir did an absolutely phenomenal job! At one point during the ceremony my husband turned to me and went, "wow he is like really really good." Throughout the rest of the day people asked me who Samir was commenting on his beautiful voice. If you listen to his EP on spotify you will see he can pretty much sing anything and everything. I was so happy to have Samir sing at my wedding and would without a doubt book him for parties/events in the future!

What to Expect
You will see a young, energetic performer enliven an audience with a wide range of songs from today and the past! My favorite way to perform is simply voice and piano, but I can make arrangements for other instruments upon request!
I am a young medical student from NYC who is currently in the Albany area! I absolutely love to sing and perform and would be so happy to make your event better in any way I can! I love getting to know clients before their events and really tailoring my performances to meet their needs. I am incredibly vocally flexible (with a very strong high belt) and have experience with many different vocal styles (musical theater, classic, soul, gospel, choir, etc.) I have performed professionally at countless events, but every single event I do is special to me.
Outside of performing, I am typically studying. My medical passions include research on effective group practice protocol for low socioeconomic status patients, as well as active involvement in under-served healthcare at free clinics.
Additional Booking Notes
Requirements for sound include microphones, a vocal monitor, and sound output for a keyboard if a regular piano is not available! Other than that, setup is very simple with mic stands, piano, music stands, and me! I like the focus to be on the music and entertainment, not on the stage!
