“...her voice has a warm earthy sound with a slight raspiness of a blues singer (some might classify as contralto); but she can reach the clear soprano spinto clarity... this voice invites you into the story, as if she is telling you a secret...” Hami Harris, The Washington Post

“...Charisma’s performances are considered ‘edu-tainment’ ... you will be compelled to think”. Philip E. Pannell, The Washington Informer

“...Charisma has more facial expressions than a Shakespearan actor...” Ernest P. White, Washington Living
