Award-winning Soprano, Jacqueline Ballarin described by the Shoreline Times,
"As performed by Ballarin with a Gypsy tinge, the words soared and shimmered as her voice, backed by a soaring orchestration, took off - powerful and full of feelings, yet effortless - and the audience clapped and moved rhythmically as the singer kept building to a melodious and passionate climax that saw the crowd leap to its collective feet."
Eve Franchi, wife of the late great Tenor, Sergio Franchi and President of The Sergio Franchi Foundation, "Passion is your name" - You are a God-gift of a talent!!!"
Dr. Frank DiBussolo, 8 X GRAMMY Award Nominee Jazz Guitarist, "Jacqueline has one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard."
