Hi Pete
I was going to email you this morning myself to say Helen was fantastic, she was perfect for our event. I cannot say enough about how her performance just added to the day. We had people coming up to us and saying they loved the music she was playing and singing. I was very impressed with Helen just knowing what songs to sing, they were her choices and they were perfect, she just knew what to do. This is exactly what you need on an occasion such as this, a true professional and so talented. We would definitely book Helen again without hesitation and we will be recommending her and your service to anyone requiring entertainment.
So thankyou you again your service has exceeded all our expectations thankyou Pete.
Marlene & David Harris 

Helen was awesome we had a great night. Regards
