From an elegant wedding ceremony to large-scale charity ball or corporate event, Mezzo-Soprano Joëlle Morris uses the power of song and voice to help you make your special day or event a truly memorable one.
With a large extensive repertoire including Classical Arias, Popular Ballads, Jazz Standard, Musical Theatre and Opera Arias, Joëlle combines the perfect ethereal voice with grace and elegance.
Fluent in both English and French, Joëlle is at ease singing in numerous languages, including French, English, Italian, Latin, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Hebrew, and Yiddish.
Joëlle is a thorough musician who can communicate well with your church’s own organist or is able to provide accompanying musicians and backing CDs if required. Joëlle is also happy to perform unaccompanied, which, depending on the songs and venue, can create a powerful effect.
