Cris and her friend were absolutely wonderful on Saturday evening. All our guests commented on how great they sounded and that they created a fantastic ambience. We can not thank Cris enough. I'll definitely be recommending Cris to everyone. (Sandra)

Cris was performing together with a double-bass player at our lovely Bedroom Bar and their performance was amazing. If you would like to create the great luxury/romantic/glass-of-wine atmosphere for your customers/visitors/audience, you should definitely contact Cris. Amazing voice, amazing vibes.

Saw Cris with her trio last Saturday at the Bun and Bar along Green Lanes. They were wonderful. They worked really hard and created a very lovely atmosphere at the venue. Thank you so much. All the friends I brought along thoroughly enjoyed it. Mandy Mandy Hawting

On the sunny side of the street
No woman no cry
Weaver of dreams
Take the A train
Little white lies

There will never b another you
Turn me on
They can't take that away from me
All of me
The thrill is gone
Night and day
You stepped out of a dream
Ain't misbehaving'
All of me
Autumn leaves
You stepped out of a dream
Weaver of dreams
There will never be another you
I can't stand the rain
Don't know why

All too soon
Almost like being in Love
But not for me

Come fly with me
Dream a little dream of me
Every time we say goodbye
Exactly like you

it's only a paper moon
Look to the sky

I should care
I'll be around
I'm old fashioned
If i had you
I've got you under my skin
I want u back

There will never b another you
All of me
Night and day
Fly me to the moon
You stepped out of a dream
