Tina and I want to thank you so much for the beauty you shared with us on Friday. Your voice is superb and we were overwhelmed by your feeling and ability. Bravo. We wish you ongoing success.”

“I love Innessa’s wonderful voice and her marvellous performances. Innessa thoughtfully crafts her performances to suit the occasion – from her visually demure, damsel-like singing at ‘Poet’s Ball’ evening soiree to her full-on energetic exaltation of the ‘Folk Horizons’ concert."
