“Francesca is something that comes along once in your life – if you are lucky. Passionate and intense, Francesca is spellbinding. She has star quality that can’t be denied…. the passion of Janis Joplin, the moves of Tina Turner, and the looks of a Melrose Vixen. She could make it in ANY medium she chooses…as a singer she is awesome, but as a performer, she is a PHENOMENON!” – Bernard Baur – THE MUSIC CONNECTION MAGAZINE
