Third time is definitely a charm. Another one out the park by Ms. Kamari. This one I did not need a full vocal arrangement. She added exactly what I needed and provided me with variations to choose from. Nothing beats working with Kamari!
Kamari is a SLAYER. She works with impeccable precision. She leaves me loss for words. I cannot say what else she needs to do or change because she makes the first my last. If you need that PROFESSIONAL sound, Kamari is the one for you, and FOR ME. :-)
Kamari is an amazing vocal arranger to work with. She's original, professional, and she's focused. One thing about Kamari is she's very detailed. She effectively executes! She was a joy to work with who incredibly nailed it the first time. I feel like I was playing against her in MK where she got a "FLAWLESS VICTORY!!!"
