"There are a lot of great singers in this world but not all are gifted with a voice that is   
at once captivating and yet familiar all in the same breath. Clementine has that kind   
of voice. The kind of voice that pulls you in like a friend sharing a secret and at the   
same time gently compelling you to listen to her interpret the lyrics of whatever   
song she’s singing. In my professional experience I’ve just described the difference   
between a good singer and the kind of voice that makes a star, there’s an intangible   
“it” that separates the two, you’ve either got that special “it” or you don’t and   
Clementine’s got it. With her new collection of songs on “Letting Go,” and her stunning   
vocal delivery, Clementine has got all the makings of a star."
