Rachel Mercer Reviews
Last evening I had perhaps the most enjoyable hour I have spent for many months – if not years (sad person! ) – listening to and enjoying the singing of Rachel.
I was thoroughly entertained at the bay hotel in Morecambe. I purchased two CDs that I find a joy to listen too. Thank you.
Rachel sang at our Golden Wedding celebration evening at the Longlands. She was superb with everyone commenting on her beautiful voice and lovely personality and we danced all night. She has also sung at our WI evening in Bolton – Le -Sands and had a wonderful reception.
Booked Rachel for a Carnforth Rotary Club fundraiser in February. She entertained us after dinner and has an amazing vocal range. I can thoroughly recommend her as an all round entertainer.
Rachel sang at our wedding in July, she has a beautiful voice all our guests commented on how lovely she sang. Many thanks Rachel
We booked Rachel Mercer to perform at Mums funeral. We wanted something special for Mum and Rachel was an absolutely perfect choice. Her voice was fantastic. I cannot thank Rachel enough for making a very sad occasion into something really special and memorable for our family. We would highly recommend Rachel.
Rachel sang at my daughter’s wedding on Saturday 15 July 2017 two pieces Jesu Joy of Mans Desiring and Pie Jesu. She performed both pieces beautifully and we were very pleased.
Rachel sang at my birthday party and was everything and more that I had hoped for, making it such a special day to remember. Some friends sent me these comments afterwards which sum up what I felt: “The singing was amazing and just the icing on top of the cake. ” “The music was so right for the day and how well Rachel kept on singing and singing.” “I was truly in awe of Rachel’s singing, what a gift to be able to sing like that.” “Truly memorable – the young lady singing was beautiful.” “Unbelievable – what a talent. ”.
