Singing Telegram

Singing Telegram

Classy yet Casual. No Clowns, No Costumes ...just pure raw talent.

A singing telegram is perfect for putting a smile on the face of someone you care about. I've been called on to sing everything from Happy Birthday at a Birthday BBQ to "Signed Sealed Delivered" at an office to congratulate a colleague for closing the deal!  A beautiful song is the best way to tell your colleagues and loved ones how much they mean to you. Let me know how you want to surprise that special someone!

Genres

  • jazz, soul, r&b, funk, gospel
  • classical, music theatre, pop
  • rock, reggae etc.

I deliver a *SURPRISE* Singing Telegram to a friend, family member or colleague! Perfect for Birthdays, Thank You's, Anniversaries, Wedding Proposals etc.

  • 1 or 2 songs
  • A capella (1 or 2 songs with no instrumental accompaniment)
**Please keep in mind that even though the Singing Telegram is a "surprise" there are restrictions and limitations to where a singing telegram can take place. Some public venues/spaces like restaurants and offices do not allow it. There must be a contact (a manger, owner etc) at the location that can act as a liaison. This will make the experience go much smoother. Thank you for your understanding.
