Event in Washington, DC on 11/03/2012
"I hired Nancy to sing for a marriage proposal. Nancy was very responsive, professional, and flexible. She worked with us to get the song the way we wanted to, she was nice enough to make a sign for our client, and she even took initiative to add things like the lyrics to the song she sang on the back of the frame (which we didn't even ask her to do). I would recommend her and will use her again. "
