I was so excited to photograph Wanda on Christmas Eve! She is such a lovely person with a lovely voice to match. Wanda has what I like to call a “shoe voice”. A “shoe voice” is a voice that is so good, that you have to take your shoe off and throw it at the stage it’s so good. And yeah, I just made that up that phrase :). But hey, it’s THAT good.

If y’all haven’t taken the time to listen to Wanda sing, then y’all are doing yourselves a great disservice. But it’s okay, you can fix it now by listening to her YouTube channel. Well, after you finish viewing this post :)

I can’t wait to see the big things you have in store, Wanda! Just make sure you don’t forget me when you make it big lol!

Keep up with Wanda Jae:
