“We were so fortunate to have Kendra perform for us. Her costumes were gorgeous, she had an exotic look that our patrons enjoyed and she whipped the crowed into a frenzy. By the end of her performance they were clapping and hooting their approval! Kendra was such a joy to have on our performance roster, always professional and pleasant to work with. We will be sad to see her go ­ but know that bigger and brighter things are on her horizon.”
