Amazing voice

We heard Rikki sing at a family wedding. Her voice was absolutely beautiful. She put her whole heart and soul into it. Made a few of us cry she did amazing! We are planning our wedding and I reached out to Rikki right away. I cannot have my wedding without Rikki singing our first dance!!! I’m looking forward to working with you!

Amazing and stress free.

I am beyond excited that I was able to book her for my wedding next year. I have heard her perform a few times before and am always so deeply moved by her sound. I am very big into musical theatre and all performing arts and am just smitten with her performance ability. I look forward to listening to her sing at the most important day of my life.
