Having Mary sing at the EJG event was spectacular, it made a real difference to the vibe and whole atmosphere and had people up dancing! Thanks again!

Mary performed during my wedding ceremony. I had a song I wanted sang acoustically. She sang the song beautifully and her acoustic version was wonderful. It really added a personal touch to our ceremony and everybody loved her beautiful voice. I would certainly recommend her! Thank you!
