“My husband and I were on the Summit during its last Canadian cruise. We enjoyed your show and only found one fault - it was much too short.”
“My boyfriend and I recently took the celebrity solstice western Caribbean cruise. I just felt the need to tell you that you are on the most talented women I have ever seen perform! I have already shared some of your YouTube videos with my family and friends. Thanks for a very entertaining night. Truly amazing.”
“Wanted to drop you a line and tell you how much our parents (80's), my husband and I enjoyed your performance on the Celebrity Eclipse and proud to know that you are a Canadian from Toronto. Guess we will have to plan another cruise 2011 to catch your next performance. All the best to you and yours!”

“My girlfriend and I just got off the Celebrity Summit on Sunday and I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed both of your shows. You were AMAZING. Thank you so much for the memories. It was truly a fantastic cruise and you helped make it that way!”
“I last wrote to you last December to tell you that you were my new favorite singer. Well that is still true. I would love to see you on another cruise. I love voices like singers who sing songs such as Man of La Mancha and Phantom of the Opera and you are as good as any of them.”
“Just wanted to tell you how much we enjoy you and your talent - thank you!”
“My husband and I were privileged to see you perform this past week on the Celebrity Summit. You were absolutely fantastic! Your impressions are fabulous and you have a great voice all your own. We thoroughly enjoyed your show.”
“You were the best part of our entire trip on the Carnival Dream! You have more talent in your little finger than all of those artists that you use in your show combined! Hands down, you're the number one performer in my book.”
“My wife and I saw you for the first time on the Royal Caribbean Explorer of the Seas We thoroughly enjoyed your performance and were among the audience that gave you a standing ovation. What a beautiful and diverse voice you have! You are a good tonic for a world that seems to be suffering from much stress today. I'd recommend medicare covering the cost of at least one dose of you at least two times a year!”
