Testimonials and Reviews:
"To say that the audience was in for a good time is an understatement. Welch is a performer with both stunning vocal ability and terrific stage presence... she more than proved that she has the chops for this music. She has an easygoing, witty nature that’s very appealing."
– Arlene Bachanov, Daily Telegram
“Thanks Helen. It was a great pleasure to be on stage with you. Great voice, wonderful stage presence, very professional in all dealings. Made my life easy. I’m still getting great feedback.”
