Taresa performed soft and classical selections during dinner service and then ramped it up with some pop/rock for dancing in her final set.
The venue was an award presentation and fundraiser for our local Police-Fire-EMT Departments, but center stage was stolen by TT beginning with her rendition of the Star Spangled Banner to open the program.
Guests were drawn to listen to her over dinner, even though her set was intended to be background music. Her voice is captivating, and all who listened were astonished at her range of vocals and her spot-on rendering of some popular hits. Song selection was tremendous and sufficiently varied to please all attendees.
There was a packed house, so we had basically no room for a dance floor. However, TT had them foot tapping, hand clapping and chair dancing all over the room. Surprisingly, she even took several requests and sang them as if we were listening to the original recording artist.
Several in the room didn't realize the music was live until they saw TT singing.
After the event, I received dozens of compliments. But they were not for my efforts in putting the event together, they were moreover for my selection of the entertainer for the evening.
We would, and will, have TT back for more performances. In fact, the organization will be working together with TT in the near future on a collaboration for the Christmas season. It'll be a "can't miss" event.
TT, You rock!!!
