Annapolis Wedding

First, I give Valerie beyond a 10+ rating. I hired her to sing at our daughter's wedding in June. She sang the Lord's Prayer a Capella in our church for a crowd of 300. Well, all I can say is that she knocked it out of the park. I saw the minister close his eyes during her performance and wipe his eyes with a handkerchief as she finished. Her voice filled and projected throughout the church and embraced each person in attendance. I have been asked for a video of just her performance by friends. One said, "People from Atlanta would be willing to put her on a plane to come sing." My daughter's Godmother kept saying, "Everything was beautiful, and that singer, that singer! Wow!" If you want a beautiful song sung at an event, I can not recommend Valerie more highly. Also, she was so kind and professional to work with along the way.                                        - Elizabeth R. on July 13, 2016


We hired Valerie to sing a Capella the National Anthem after a presentation by the Color Guard for an international conference of museum professionals during the Memorial Day weekend. It was one of the most moving musical performances I have every experienced in my many decades of booking talent. I did not know Valerie before this performance but I would now recommend her to anyone--she is a testament to the transcendent power of music!  - Dean on June 3, 2016

Extraordinary Talent & Professionalism

Music is such an important part of our lives and we wanted it to be a very distinctive part of our wedding ceremony and reception. We were privileged to witness the beauty and authenticity of Valerie’s voice reach to the core of each of our guests and bring them together to celebrate the wonder of this distinct moment in time. Valerie is not only the best singer I've ever heard at a wedding, but one of the best live singers I've ever heard, period. She was easy to work with, super friendly and truly desired to make us happy. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Valerie for conveying the message that transformed our day into something truly magical. I couldn’t have possibly dreamed of anymore!                          - Allison L. on October 30, 2015
