Many people have been touched by her beautiful warm voice and radiant presence, and have been inspired by her life story and positive outlook on life. Full-bodied and powerful, her voice proclaims a presence at once calming yet uplifting. Her special musical gift comes through with a wondrous generosity that touches deeply into the hearts.
Since her debut, Simone has performed concerts and sound healing workshops worldwide. In addition to being featured on TV and radio shows in the Netherlands and United States, Simone has had the privilege to perform with noted musicians Ken Fitzgerald (base player for Frank Sinatra), Dan Miller (trumpet virtuoso who toured with Harry Connick Jr. for 12 years), Nicky Parrott (base player of Les Pauls), and Paul Ventura (a vocalist, who worked with Tony Bennett, Milton Berle, Jerry Lester and other celebrities). She has also performed at Rotary functions, corporate events and has offered her musical talent to benefit concerts in Community Hospices.
“I have listened to hundreds of singers from around the world and I have never heard a performer reach out and touch the audience as she did. America has a big public that would readily respond and receive Simone’s message,” said Wayne Saunders – Musical collaborator Liza Minelli, Judy Garland.
