Singing Holidays and Retreats Reviews
“I have just returned from the most amazing, brilliant singing holiday in NYC. I can't praise Mike King and Carol King enough for this unforgettable experience. Who would have thought that little old me would one day perform on the stage of a New York City jazz club. Certainly not me, not in my wildest dreams. I have to thank Mike for his tremendous tuition, musicality and extreme patience because he gave me the confidence that I'd never had before.
Of course when we weren't singing we were out and about with a wonderful itinerary arranged by Mike and Carol. As well as visiting jazz clubs we went to Broadway and enjoyed the fabulous show, ‘The Color Purple'. What an amazing night that was! In addition to all of this Mike took us to Ground Zero which was very moving and on our last day we spent a wonderful, sunny afternoon in Central Park.
I can honestly say that my singing holiday was one of the most unforgettable experiences of my life and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to anyone.” – Margaret Carvalho
