I booked Melissa for my mother's 100th birthday celebration.
Couldn't fault anything from the booking to the day.
Melissa was very approachable and easy to talk to about my requirements for the event. She was punctual and happy to fit in when she arrived as we were running late. She sang really well and all the songs chosen were brilliant for the occasion.
Would definitely book again.
