Whether it's singing you down the aisle at your wedding or playing for your company Awards Dinner, Jennie can add that unique element to your special event.
"Jennie was invited to perform at an exclusive evening for our top level executives at Manchester United. To say that she wowed the crowd is an understatement. Her music is elegant and her vocals are fantastic. I would highly recommend Jennie Sawdon to anyone looking for a top level musician. We have more events this year and I have no doubt who I will be trying to book. Thanks and good luck, your fans at Manchester United."
