Reviews

From customers:

Ibe P, 1 year ago

Working with Emma O'Connor on vocals was amazing, she was efficient and spot on

Francesco *, 2 years ago

We had the honor, the pleasure and the opportunity to be able to work on a winter tour with Emma, a wonderful person with a great professionalism, she immediately became familiar with the band and the whole company, always making herself available at every step even in the most difficult moments, and believe me in a gospel tour in December with rainy snow and adverse weather making 48 concerts in just 30 days requires dedication, commitment and professionalism that not everyone has. Emma yes. An artist with an unparalleled talent. With the hope of being able to collaborate again we wish her the best successes!
