Sophie was fantastic. She created a real rapport with all of us. Her choice of songs was perfect. My sister in law (it was a surprise for her birthday) loved it. Sophie’s rendition of We’ll Gather Lilacs was a perfect finale. We had a lovely afternoon.

We were lucky to have Sophie join us for a surprise 70th birthday zoom call. In the days before, she helped with the choice of songs and was always quick to reply when we had questions. Then on the actual day, not only did we all love her beautiful voice, engaging performance and musical versatility. She also went out of her way to put everyone at ease - directly addressing the birthday boy, giving some details about the songs, even making us join in for the final song. Very much recommended!

We had the great pleasure of a performance by Sophie Dicks to celebrate my brother’s 70th birthday. Sophie is a fantastic mezzo-soprano but also able to sing jazz and pop genres so beautifully. She made a great connection from the outset and it felt as though she was in the room with us. Thank you so much Sophie!

Sophie has an exquisite voice, real"tingles up your spine" stuff; her range goes effortlessly from very quiet and tender to really powerful. Full marks to the singer! But for me, the whole t thing was spoilt by the very poor quality of sound, not clear whether this was at our end or hers, or a mismatch between our respective electronics. Problem notwitstanding, the family is keen to repeat the experience when the time is right.

Sophie came across as a really lovely person and a terrific actor and performer. Her programme was delightful and she had a real rapport with her audience. She really shone in the arias by Handel and Rossini.

This is the second time we have asked Sophie to perform and it was just as enjoyable as the first. She sang beautifully and put everyone at their ease making conversation and engaging with quite a large group of people. We are all fans!

Sophie was wonderful. She is a brilliant performer, but also took the time to really engage with her mini audience and that made them feel very special. I don't think they have ever had a concert just for them before, and they were incredibly moved.

Sophie, I'm only just recovering! My husband and I were left in a sobbing mess. You were sensational and the set was so, so moving. Honestly I can't thank you enough and I will never forget what you did for my family tonight. My father adored it. You are a complete star! I will follow your career and wish you ever success for the the future.

A MASSIVE thank you for the most amazing concert on Christmas Day.  Even thinking about it now brings tears to my eyes - I cannot put into words just what it meant to us, and it was that special because you made it so.  

Your voice is beautiful, your acting and performance of each piece was faultless, we fully entered into the spirit of each piece with you.  You made us laugh, you made us cry - it was unexpectedly emotional to be so up close and personal with you and your music.  I think you are amazing to do it, I imagine it might feel quite an intense experience to deliver - for us it was like being in the front row at the opera but with a big magnifying glass!  But you seemed to fully capitalise on that intensity and amplify it into skin-tingling performance for us.  

My parents were OVER THE MOON at the whole surprise and experience, really truly, they are still reeling from it and telling people about it.  Like us they adored your personality, your charm and your patter, as well of course as your gorgeous voice.  We are fully bought in Sophie, and keen to see you when you next appear live, when things open up!!  Please do let us know when you do your performances, we will come and support.  

Finally - thank you so much for thinking of even the smallest details on Christmas day - the way your fireplace looked behind you was so beautiful and festive, it was the perfect picture.  With, of course, you centre stage - I knew my parents would be inspired by your youth and your extremely pretty face too.

Thank you so much for really the best 30mins all holiday.  It lifted all our spirits til they were dancing in the sky!  And it was a wonderful moment to share with my parents.

Thank you Sophie for my Zoom surprise. Simone did an excellent job of keeping it a surprise. Hearing a Hamilton piece was a massive treat, and your cover of Elvis was inspired.

Thanks Sophie! Loved the intro and the patter at the start of the call. Meant a lot that you took everything that we wrote into account. You looked so glam, it was like sitting in the front row at the opera. We're not opera experts but it blew us away and it meant a lot to George. Best of luck and look forward to booking you again!
