”Pauline has an unusual stage presence, talking to the audience and singing directly to individuals is very clever while performing her own take on some great tunes of which ‘Lifting Me Higher’ would be in my top 10 songs! Bravo!”

“Pauline has a unique style that makes you feel refreshed, happy and excited about life! Her generous heart was able to sing for our Christmas Appeal in the Christian Aid office in London and everyone commented on how great of a singer she is! We look forward to having her sing again!”

”Pauline and The Imaginary Friends played on stage at our Teddington Christmas Lights Up event and were fantastic. I booked them very last minute as the event was initially cancelled due to lack of funds which were then raised by local residents. They were exceptionally professional and did the perfect set to entertain people of all ages. The combination of Pauline’s fabulous voice and the music accompaniment from Gareth and Matt is the perfect recipe for any event. We loved their energy and how they got the crowd dancing”.
