Ru performed at our wedding at the Beach House, Jersey Island in August and she brought a magical and personal touch to the songs they played. Her smooth, sexy, but unique voice is truly inspirational. Ru is highly professional and very talented. Victoria & Simon Cavill (brother of Actor Henry Cavill)

We absolutely loved Ru & her band's performance at our wedding! It made our day even more special. Ru and her band were amazing and her attention to detail was incredible. They managed to learn all the songs we requested in record time and play them exactly like we asked for. To top that Ru was quick-thinking and proactive when it came to unforeseen conditions such as last minute location changes. Laura (former miss Universe)
