Maria Elena Sanchez was born in Cuba, raised in NYC, lived for some years in Miami, and now resides in Houston, TX. Maria Elena started her musical career in her 20's as a solo singer - she has been a church choir director and pianist/organist, piano teacher and aside from her music, a published poet - maybe that's why lyric writing came easy to her. Now she wants to share her love of music with everyone - her goal being to have her music heard and sung all over the world.

Maria Elena's composition's style is unique; coming from her heart and extraordinary mind. Her music is inspired by the many decades of songwriters that have shared their unique sounds with us. Maria Elena now wants to inspire future songwriters with her sound.

Wishing you the best . . . Maria Elena Sanchez

Maria Elena Sanchez sang at our mom's memorial service. She is a warm, friendly and caring person, and this was really appreciated in our time of sadness. She arrived in plenty of time to check out the acoustics and made a special effort to be sure she was able to complete her assignment. And when she SANG, our hearts were really uplifted. It was extraordinary! What a voice! What a range! I don't think I've ever heard Amazing Grace sung so beautifully and with such feeling. Many of the people who were at the service have told us that they were very moved by her song. Our assistant minister said that she closed her eyes and let her voice carry her away - it made her feel as if she were in the presence of angels. We will hire her again, hopefully for a happier occasion, and will recommend her to our friends.

I hired her for my wedding...She was supposed to start playing music at 4:30 pm and did not even show up to the church until 4:58. Needless to say we were not very happy!

Maria Elena Sanchez’s Response:

I just received the feedback on this wedding. Needless to say, that I was completely caught off guard by the disparaging comments. When I was booked for this wedding, Gigmasters as well as the bride, told me it was at 5pm. Neither the bride, nor anyone else in her family, asked me to be there at 4:30pm -- not verbally, or in writing. If not, I would have complied. I arrived at 4:50pm (not 4:58pm), believing that I was supposed start at 5pm. As a matter of fact, I even did the rehearsal free of charge, and nothing was mentioned then either. I'm sorry this happened, but frankly, I arrived at the time I was hired to arrive and did what I was hired to do - I am a
