What can I say ? How do I say this ? I just know how I can express myself in simple words. It was my wife Priti's 40th Birthday and I must say Samantha-Jane played the 3 songs so beautiful at the restaurant in Leicester - Happy Birthday, Hello and can't stop thinking about you. It was a total surprise for wife, she was not expecting this at all. Samantha-Jane told us to dance too, and we did. It brought tears in my wife eyes, she was overjoyed, surprised and so happy. We had a fantastic evening. Samantha-Jane, you made it so special. We will always remember this evening for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much. Kishore Tank
