"Jasmine. I just wanted to thank you for making a great night, truly incredible. The party continued till just after 5am. There were huge compliments on your performance, men and many of the women confessing to tears of emotion and admiration. Nobody could believe it was a total secret. Thank you again."
C. Grant / Birthday Party / June '21
"I know C has sent his thanks to you for performing at my birthday party on Saturday night but I wanted to add my own thanks for helping to make it a very special night! Your arrival was a wonderful surprise and your singing was just superb - I don't think there was a dry eye in the house. We all appreciated having such a talent amongst us in a very intimate environment and you certainly set the scene for the best celebration of my life. We danced until dawn and the buzz throughout the party was fabulous!"
C. Windsor / Birthday Party / June '21
"I feel very privileged to have witnessed Jasmine singing live and it made the occasion so memorable for everyone concerned."
N. Cooke / Private Party / May '21
"Jasmine worked with us on our film A Woman’s Life which explores the life of Clara von Holst, mother of Gustav Holst and the ‘invisible woman’ in the Holst household. Clara was a talented singer in her younger days but marriage and the birth of two children put paid to her dreams. We commissioned Jasmine to become the voice of this younger Clara and to sing The Last Rose of Summer, the song which haunts the older Clara in her present humdrum life. Jasmine’s talent is not only evident in her wonderful singing voice but in her ability to take direction and to powerfully express in the song Clara’s emotion at what might have been. She has made a wonderful contribution to the film and through her interpretation of the song brought the younger Clara and her yearning vividly to life."
