“Loretta Heywood is a very special performer. Her ability to touch your heart with her interpretations of classic songs, makes you feel as if they are her own. This is what made people come back time after time to hear her and her very talented musicians.”  Vince Power, promoter

She sings with passion and dances with a swing, a voice can do a million things,
but it’s the singer who wins
‘Tis she who expels negative things,
as that audience claps as she does her thing.
