"From the moment I spoke to Oya on our first pre telephone interview, I knew that she would not only be an amazing asset to my party, but that she was very accommodating to what I wanted. Her performance was amazing, her voice is truly a gift from God, that lifted everyone's spirits. I would use Oya again and recommend her to others that want that special touch to any event. Thank you Oya you are wonderful!!"
