I first saw Sharnie in the West End musical 'Dancing in the Streets' and was blown away. Having her at my annual dinner and dance was a must. Motown was definately brought to our event that night. Great performer,no Diva off stage, but certainly one on it.

"So Amazing!
Dear Sharnie,
Thank you so much for an outstanding show at our wedding, it could not have been any better. You are a professional through and through; all the way from planning the event to the actual performance. Your positive and creative attitude is priceless when planning a wedding, and your musical talent can entertain any crowd. Our guests, and ourselves, were absolutely blown away by your voice and charisma, making it impossible not to dance. You made our special day even more special and memorable, and we can't thank you enough for that!
Warmest regards,

-Seda & Marius


Thank you so much Sharnie for two thoroughly entertaining performances as part of the inaugural Ideal Home Show at Christmas. Your performances were packed full of nostalgia and were not only lots of fun, but were engaging and had everyone singing and dancing. Your style was a welcome addition to our Christmas bandstand, with lots of fantastic feedback received by staff and visitors alike.

We will stay in touch regarding future shows and performances as we would love to have you!

Regards,

Daniel Adams

Sharnie - What can we say [BUT] - she delivers exactly what she says she will! I booked Sharnie to perform her Ultimate Soul & Motown Tribute Show to 200 guests at the 100 Black Men of London 10th Anniversary Gala Dinner and Dance at the Cumberland Hotel.

The audience included a number of professionals, a recipient of an MBE, as well as a few visitors from the USA. Sharnie's entrance - Wow., Striking., That dress! [OMG] I want one - Every girls dream!!! - long, lace bodice and tiered/layered skirt. Sharnie sang a medley of well known Motown songs that certainly got the party started.

The dinner guests were up and out of their seats dancing to her songs and rocking to that Motown beat. As Sharnie's performance ended, the guests wanted more and she received a standing ovation. Feedback from some of our guests: We thought Sharnie was "fantastic" [I agree] and we "could have listened to her all night" and "Sharnie is simply the best"
Sharnie is certainly a Motown Diva who Rocks!!

We will certainly want a repeat performance at future events. Well done Sharnie!

We hired Sharnie to sing at my 50th birthday party and are so glad we did. She has a fantastic voice that you have to hear first hand to truly appreciate. She looked great in her sparkly dress and sixties hairstyle and her choice of songs was absolutely spot on. People young and old love Motown and the floor was full of people dancing and singing along all through her act.

She even gets a few backing singers from the guests on a couple of numbers which is a nice touch and went down very well. Having a professional singer is something that really makes a party. If you are looking for a great singer and a lovely lady then go ahead and hire Sharn. Believe us, you will not be disappointed!

Dear Sharnie !
I just wanted to say thank you SO much for the amazing job you did at our wedding. Having searched high and low for a singer who would perform the kind of music we were after, we hoped that you would be good, and judging from the fact that you'd performed in West End shows etc. we thought you would be - but your performance on the day absolutely surpassed our expectations!
You were fantastic! The atmosphere that your brought to our evening reception was incredible. Your voice was amazing and the song choices you made had everyone up and dancing!

We've had so many comments since the wedding saying how great people thought you were and how you really brought such a great feel to the evening party. You were also really professional, easy to deal with, and really friendly in the run up to our wedding day, which made such a huge difference as well, as I'm sure anyone who's about to get married will appreciate, was a huge help and therefore one less thing to worry about! We would recommend you to anyone in an instant!
Alex and Claire Glen.

The performance of "Midnight Train To Georgia" by Motown Diva Sharnie was a real goose-bump moment. Sharnie's voice was soulful and enchanting.
