Mary-Grace's Reviews

Myself and my husband-to-be booked Mary Grace via Encore over 18 months ago. for our wedding ceremony performance. Her communication has been poor throughout (I haven’t heard from her in 6 months), and she has recently cancelled our booking, via Encore, only 3 weeks before our wedding. It has been blamed on health issues, but I’ve followed her on Instagram since booking her and seen she’s travelling around India. I wish she'd notified us earlier and responded to our calls / emails. I’m gutted as we were really excited to have Mary Grace’s performance at our wedding (she has a beautiful voice), and have since had to rush to find an alternative.

Mary-Grace performed at my 50th birthday party. Mary-Grace was utterly brilliant. Her two sets were in tune with the party atmosphere and Mary-Grace also sang a couple of songs with one of my guests, who is in a band in his spare time, which was superb. Fabulous performance and song choices and lots of the party guests said that Mary-Grace was superb.

Mary was a graceful and powerful energy to have on our show. Her music brought so much joy and happiness for the crowd that came out! She’s very good at what she does and I'd hire her for a gig anytime any day. Make sure to get the Mary experience!

Mary-Grace played at my birthday party and she blew everyone away! She is such a ray of sunshine and an incredible musician! If you give her any song request she can figure it out in about 10 seconds. She was playing some old classics and she even had us all dancing at the end to Sean Paul! This girl is amazing I will definitely be booking her again! Thank you Mary-Grace for making it a night to remember!
