Thank you so much John, you are AMAZING! You gave the wow-factor to what would normally be a boring corporate dinner in Chester Racecourse. The guests were very impressed and complimented your fantastic voice. It was such a pleasure to meet you and I loved working with such a professional and talented artist. I would definitely recommend you to anyone holding an event of any size! You will always be my first choice! Thank you again x
