Seasoned, spicy, saucy and sassy, this petite 4’10″ curly red-headed hot-blooded vocal song stylist delivers
every song with the smoothness of a pearl, the richness of Godiva and the explosion of TNT – all at once. From the moment the first note is played, her smile opens up her soul and her soul opens up your heart. You are now in her world and you won’t want to leave. She’s one Hot Item.
