Thank you very much Elly did an amazing job and we were very happy with her performance.
Thank you
Annelies and Chris

The event was excellent and Elly’s performance was very well received by the visitors.   Elly spoke to me prior to leaving and indicated she and her colleague Rosie had been very impressed with the day and the opportunity to come to Waimate and be part of the day’s entertainment programme.
Fortunately the weather was brilliant and a good day was had by all attending.

I am out of town at the mo so don't know if we got a photo- haven't seen them yet. ELLY was absolutely delightful. She was perfect for our garden party playing set up on the lawn. She was friendly, professional and such a beautiful voice. Just perfect for our Occassion. I would highly recommend ELLY for such an Occassion.
