Lynda was an absolute joy from beginning to end. She was a true professional with an abundance of energy. She went above and beyond to help the part go with a bang. The audience adored her show, my phone hasn’t stopped ringing all day with compliments of the event.

Lynda is a 'star' - no doubt about that!
She performed for us at our Tesco Retired Colleague Corporate Event recently, and we really enjoyed her performance. We have re-booked her for another Event and would definitely recommend this singer.
