Singer for Funerals

A professional singer for all styles of funerals and memorial events

A funeral is a difficult time for those involved and having a professional singer can help the family remember their loved ones through their favourite songs such as ‘Amazing grace’, ‘Over the rainbow’ or ‘Nessun dorma’.

Lorraine is available for all types of service and any venue, performing both traditional religious selections and popular song choices in keeping with the tone of the occasion, whether this is a quiet time for reflection or more of a celebration of the deceased’s life.
