Just a beautiful voice, from deep within. It was one of my life's pleasures to have heard John. How he is not more widely known is a mystery.

John has a voice which heals just like a medicine, always from his heart, and with a lifetime of experience to deliver. It was the best singing I ever heard. Antonella
