To Whom It May Concern:
It is my pleasure to recommend Ms. Ashley Shannon, an extremely talented vocalist. She is a voice unlike any other and her talents will surprise and inspire any audience. She performed for the 2009’s National Rifle Association in New Port Richey, Florida and did an outstanding job.
She is a delightful girl with extremely big plans ahead of her. She has an excellent stage presence and captivates the audience. Her passion for her art shows through her work in every note she sings. Not only is she a breath of fresh air on stage, she is a kind and charming girl off the stage.
I recommend her to you and anyone else I meet. She truly is a delight on and off-stage and you will not be disappointed in her abilities. If you need further information, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com.
All the best,

Thank you for performing "Josh's Song" at the 3rd Annual Military Day and Veteran's Resource Fair. You truly have a beautiful voice.
It has long been my opinion that a Great American is one who possesses both humanitarian and leadership traits; one who is always working for the betterment of others without concern for personal gain. Your contributions to our community reveal your willingness to go that extra mile and set you apart as a Great American.
We were honored to have you participate in this year's program and look forward to working with you in the future.

I have in the past chaired two fundraising dinners for the Pasco County Republican Party where Ashley Shannon was our main entertainment and she has a talent that cannot be denied. I would highly recommend Ashley to any organization who is looking for a shining star that will please the crowd; young or old they will adore her. Ashley has the ability to work within the parameters of any organization and she doesn't work for you but with you which makes her such a pleasure for any event organizer. Ashley is not only a vocalist, she is truly multi-talented and has a truth that comes from deep within that touches your heart. Ashley exhibits an unusual level of professionalism that belies her age and makes her a true role model for our younger generation. She is always well-prepared, dependable, personable, and we always receive positive feedback from those in attendance. I cannot recommend Ashley Shannon more highly to any event organizer/organization who is looking for an evening of entertainment from a beautiful young lady with a voice that is both powerful and touching.

I would like ro recommend Ashley Shannon, a superior entertainer/vocalist,
for your organization or event. Ashley has been singing for Main Street Zephyrhills'
events for several years. Ashley is a crowd favorite, whether it is the
National Anthem at our opening ceremonies for our parades, or as a headliner
at our events. She holds the crowds and we always get great reviews from her
entertainment. Ashley has great stage presence and seems to be able to relate
with the crowd whether young or old. Ashley is very professional. All I have to do
is give her an idea of what I need and she is able to put together what I am looking for.
She is also very flexible and if I am running short on entertainment on my schedule,
she is willing to fill in and cover the gap.
Just when I think she cannot get any better, she does.
I know you would not be disappointed scheduling Ashley. She will certainly
add value to your event.
I am happy to speak with you in person if needed.

On behalf of the American Cancer Society, as well as on my
personal behalf, it is my pleasure to endorse Ashley Shannon
in any way that I can.
As a young lady, she is a beautiful person, both inside and out,
with a sweet, caring, and giving heart. As an entertainer, she is
consistently reliable and full of class-- never failing to woo any
audience set before her. She is truly a songbird, with a voice and
song list appealing to any age group. Her energy, spirit, and dedication
to her work make it obvious that she has a deep passion for entertaining.
In addition to the above, she has also given her time and talents to
benefit the mission of the American Cancer Society, through her
involvement in multiple Relay For Life events. Relay For Life is a
unique overnight celebration of life in honor and in memory of those
touched by cancer. The funds it raises help to fight the disease through
research, education, advocacy and patient services. It is a family-friendly
community event in which everyone can participate, and Ashley has
consistently left its participants with goose bumps from her on-site
It is with confidence and enthusiasm that I write this letter of reference
