The best in bbn our company book. We have hired Sharon Youngblood for our corporate parties and trade shows. We where first introduced to her by another friends private party In Beverly Hills. We knew we had to book her for our event. She was amazing. She transformed the room when she sang. All I can say is wow!
Sharon Younnblood is on of the rear performers that not only is a great entertainer. She is a great vocalist. I Love how she can be very aware of her audience and provide an atmosphere of pure love and fun. What I am most impressed with, is her ability to really sing. In a world of lip syncing, it is refreshing to hear a real singer! She is a rear breed today! She has made many of my events memorable!
Im so lucky to have found Ms. Youngblood so help me soooooo much...I hired Sharon to redo a song for me and she was amazing .. She helped vocal arrangements, music placement, runs and add-ons. Ive been looking for someone of the vocal caliber for ages now...Everyone else was so expensive and "Hollywood"....Sharon has a kind and gracious personality but very focused and have truly mastered her craft! Will use her again for sure.
Sharon is the upmost proffessional! Her voice is like no other... ive used her a few times and plan on continuing to use her. She’s amazing and quick!
The world’s best singers in our opinion, dope songwriter,
vocal producer, she is our go-to vocalist. Pop, rock, R&B she can do it all. We highly recommend working with Sharon!
