When I started planning my perfect wedding, I knew I wanted a live performance of a singer. I found Michael online and listened to a few sample songs that he sang. Instantly I fell in love with his voice and the arrangements that he brings to popular hits. I had my fiancé listen to him as well and he had the same reaction as I did. So I booked him right away. We went to a few of Michael's concerts and was even more impressed with his own songs that he wrote and performed. When our wedding day finally came I couldn't wait for Michael to perform our first dance. When he started singing our first dance song I felt like was I was in a fairy tale, it was so perfect!!
