It has been a while since I heard you sing before these last two events for
Opera Week. Your voice has grown so and I love the sound. What a
delight your performances were. Your warmth and enthusiasm are
infectious. Thank you for sharing your talents with us.
Dear Danielle, your performance today was absolutely stunning in every way!
You have truly come into your own. Your voice is beautifully placed. Your high
notes soar; your lower notes are rich and warm. Keep on doing what you do. You
bless the world with your gift. I can't wait to hear you again - soon and
Dear Danielle, "Thank you so very much for coming here to give a concert! You captured the hearts of all who were privileged to be in your audience!
What a program! I appreciated every one of the selections.
If I had a favorite, though, it would be Mozart's Exultate Jubilate.
The way you did the trills was utterly amazing and professional--as was all the rest of your singing! I just now took time out to look at your facebook and websites, congratulations, they're wonderful. I listened to another type of song since we had mostly religious ones yesterday, namely, I Could Have Danced All Night, it is so excellent! I will encourage my students to look you up. Am sure those who did not make it yesterday will be sorry they didn't (although they had good excuses for previously planned events), and they will no doubt pray that you come to St. Mary's again.
God bless you and give you continued love for your work!"

"What can we say that has not been already said about Danielle ?
She made our daughter’s engagement party elegant, professional and fun all at the same time. Everyone is still asking us about Danielle.
The engaged couple enjoyed the selections of Italian arias and contemporary love ballads equally.
Then to top it off a sing-a-long and tarantella to Italian favorites !!!
Thank you and we look forward to listening to you at their wedding mass."

"Danielle made our daughter's wedding something memorable for all. In fact, after the wedding several guests stated that they have to go see the Phantom of the Opera after Danielles' "Think of Me".
Danielle helped with all stages of the planning and also was able to give wonderful suggestions for song selection and also communicated with the musicians. I would highly recommend her!"
"Danielle sang at our Catholic wedding ceremony this past July and she was fabulous! She truly is a professional and her voice is amazing! Working with Danielle to set up all my song choices was super easy too.
She sent out a packet with step-by-step directions and suggestions for what songs could be sung/played for each part of the mass, along with CD's of song samples. She even helped me find an organist to accompany her.
Danielle has such a beautiful voice, we are so happy we chose her as our vocalist for our wedding.
We highly recommend Danielle to any bride who appreciates and wants a professional and very talented vocalist for their wedding."

Talk to you very soon,

"I am telling you Danielle - your voice is from God - what a blissful sound- do you have an audio CD I can purchase?"
Karl M. Kindt III
"My husband and I were referred to Danielle from a family member, who spoke very highly of her to sing at our wedding ceremony in August. We listened to the audio samples on the website and immediately knew we wanted Danielle to sing at our wedding. Within days of contacting Danielle and her manager Annette, they had committed to making sure our day was perfect and if anything was needed, they were there for us.
Through the course of four months and multiple communications, we came to understand that Danielle and Annette were always going above and beyond to ensure our day was perfect and provided that personal touch. They provided direction on the appropriate musical selections, samples of music, coordinated the day's events with our pianist, the Church Music Director and made sure everything was in accordance with the Church."
"Danielle's voice is angelic. At the church ceremony we were captivated by her. Danielle is nothing short of an amazing talent, that my husband and I were blessed to have sing at our Catholic wedding ceremony on August 23, 2008.
Both my husband and I agree that Danielle and Annette provide that extra touch that made our day extra special. We are blessed to have them be a part of our lives. Thank you for everything."

Dear Talented Danielle,
"When my fiancée and I heard the piano player say, 'We have a teen-age guest tonight, Danielle.' I said, 'Here we go, another version of "Tomorrow", coming up.'
Then, to my shocking delight, you sang like an Angel and for the first time, since retiring as a theatrical manager, I thought about coming out of retirement.
God Bless you, and please keep wowing America with your beautiful voice. There's almost no way you cannot be a star in the musical world."
Richard Dallas & Anne Marie
"My wife and I hired Danielle to sing at our Catholic wedding ceremony because we liked the audio samples on her website. I can tell you that her performance at our ceremony was nothing short of heavenly.
She has amazing style, range and dynamics that captivated us, our families and our friends; making our wedding a truly beautiful event.
As a musician with high expectations, I appreciated a flawless performance and timing that flowed perfectly with our Catholic mass.
In addition, Danielle and her manager provided priceless services in their help with appropriate song selection, organizing and Church approval. They put serious time and effort into preparations, meetings and communications with us, our organist, and our priest.
If you're lucky enough to find Danielle available on your wedding day, she will sing her heart out and make your ceremony one that will not be forgotten."
