Jade – I just have to tell you that in over 35 years that I have been producing and directing all types of events, with scores of talented performers, you are one of the very best. Not just because you are incredibly talented, an amazing musician, an engaging speaker, but because you are just such a nice and beautiful person. You were kind and nice to everyone involved with the event. You took time to treat people as if they were your friends. I can tell you, the talk backstage, out of your ear shot, was…” she is the nicest person we have ever worked with… and she killed her performance.”  We were all on the edge of our seats backstage. I hope we did a good job for you. thank you, thank you. Your message was spot on. Your kindness was so appreciated. I can see why you are in such demand and so successful.
