Joan’s tribute to these divas was arguably one of the finest performances viewed by this writer in 2010.

Wow! Joan Collaso, The show was a complete magical, musical experience: You were beautiful, sexy, funny, and the gowns looked great! The Best! Not only a fantastic show, but a historical moment for every person in the sold out arena.
The span of the repertoire was very impressive. The songs by Shirley Horn and Nancy Wilson were boldly reconceived and beautifully done by a very talented performer, U Ms. Collaso. U are a compliment to American Classical Music within the idiom. -Alvin Carter Bey / WHPK
As an educator, I especially appreciated your willingness to empower and inform your audience, young and old, on the historical background of these legendary women of song… Lastly, Joan, let me say, Girl, when you sang “How Glad I Am” Nancy Wilson” I was the one in the audience who said don’t do it! (smile) You rocked that! Classy show, Joan! You Go Girl! – Mary Ann Grossett/The Bernie Mac Foundation
Today I experienced one of the most amazing vocalists I have ever heard and I have heard a few in my time and her name is Joan Collaso!!! Thanks for a WONDERFUL show Joan, you are the BIZOMB!!!! Love you!
