Another thoroughly professional and comprehensive job from Tamika. Delivered on quality and creativity!!
WOW! Tamika took a very rough brief to the next level, the soul and power of her voice is an absolute dream to mix. From start to finish, a true professional.
Tamika is a once in a generation talent. A rare mixture of genius, sincerity, believability, dependability, humor, and charm. In a word - the best!
A vocalist like Tamika comes around once every thousand years. I am not joking. She is perfect when she sings soft notes, loud notes, with vibrato, without vibrato, she can do it all. Most of all, her voice reaches into your heart and squeezes out sunshine, or tears, or laughter, or whatever the moment requires. She is perfect. Simply perfect. And one absolutely believes everything she sings. She is a gift from above.
