Bride-to-be: We could not be more appreciative of Alicia's talent and patience! Her beautiful voice was so moving and it will forever be crystallized in my memory of one of the most special moments of our life- the moment we became engaged. On an extremely hot and humid summer day, Alicia remained so professional as she awaited our arrival in the heat, where she would sing a selection that brought me to tears. Groom-to-be: Alicia sang wonderfully and met all of my expectations. She chose 3 selections about love and her choices were very moving--both the rendition and the lyrics. She accommodated my special requests and I am very grateful for her contributions.

We had 48 hours to find an opera singer for my father's 85th birthday. Alicia responded right away and was a total pleasure. She was professional, accomodating, and thoughtful about the event. My parents invited several of their friends who are opera "buffs". They were all moved and thrilled by Alicia's performance. They simply loved her and all plan to see her in other venues. Her performance was the perfect gift! I highly recomend her. She is a gem!
