It all started when I sang tableside at the Macaroni Grill in San Antonio, Texas, several years ago. I was once told by a patron my niche was being a comical singer. I had never heard this before, so I decided to take it to heart. Based on that insight, I created several different one-woman shows and COWGAL VAL became my most requested production.
I sing show tunes, Patriotic, big band, Andrews Sisters, and Patsy Cline. I have also performed comedy for years. I combine the two by responding to the audience's reactions while singing and add improv comedy into the song.
Valerie Saunders has been an entertainer for many years: Singer, Vocal Impressionist, Comical Singer, Comedienne, Actress, and Dancer. She has performed nationwide in AZ, NY, OH, TX, and WV. She has done Musicals, Revues, Comedies, Dramas, and Murder Mysteries. These performances have been done on Stage, Film, TV, the Web, as well as at Amusement and Theme Parks.
Valerie’s claims to fame:
1) Sang on stage with the Eagles as an alto on the song “The Last Resort”
2) Sang Mahler’s 8th Symphony of 1000 as a 2nd Alto at Carnegie Ha ... ll, directed by Robert Shaw
3) Sang the National Anthem at the Phoenix Suns, Phoenix Coyotes, AZ Diamondbacks, and Chicago Cubs games
Her Musical Repertoire Is Quite Extensive:
1. Show Tunes 2. Big Band 3. Andrews Sisters 4. Country 5. Western 6. Sing A-long 7. Classical
Valerie honed her skills in improvisation years ago at the original Rawhide, a western town in Scottsdale, AZ. She performed “Streetmosphere,” strolling through Main Street as Matilda, a character she created and developed there. She performed in comedies outdoors: theater in-the-round every hour. Valerie was also cast in an authentic vaudeville show.
When Rawhide moved to Chandler, AZ, she was asked to create one-woman shows. She first performed The Patsy Cline Tribute. Two more shows - A Salute to Movie Musicals and Cowgal Val: Yodeler, Comedienne, Storyteller, included patter between the songs.
She also performed as a singer, dancer, and actress in a variety of shows at Old Tucson Studios as well, a western theme park in Arizona.
A vocal impressionist since childhood, she emulates Judy Garland, Julie Andrews, Patsy Cline, Doris Day, and the ladies of ABBA. Since childhood she has been doing scenes from The Wizard Of Oz - both male and female characters.
Valerie was asked to assist with lighting and props for the 1993 film Tombstone. Her additional skills and experience behind the scenes for stage, film, TV, and video, are as a choreographer, hair and makeup artist, and production assistant.

Meet the Act
I have loved movie musicals all my life. Seeing The Wizard Of Oz on TV, I fell in love with it and without knowing it at first, I soon became a vocal impressionist. Over the years, seeing different films, shows, and listening to recordings, I discovered I could sound like them naturally.
