"Luella wins SINGER UNIVERSE Vocalist of the Month"

"Not Thinking About You” is a soulful, bluesy song which is in the vein of strong ballads by Bonnie Tyler and Tina Turner. This song provides a terrific showcase for Luella’s powerful, expressive vocal performance"
Dale Kawashima, SINGER UNIVERSE Magazine.

Every now and then we get to see a GREAT example of someone communicating personally to their fan base. It doesn't take a fancy email system (though we have some great services to help). It doesn't take perfect grammar. It doesn't take much time.

It does take honesty. It takes dilligence in collecting people's email addresses. It takes a personal touch. All you have to do is tell people a little bit about you and tell them how grateful you are that they like your music.

Queensland's up-and-coming Luella wrote the fan email that inspired this "How To" article. We think you'll agree that if you liked Luella, you'd be really happy to receive this honest, personal, and heartfelt update. In fact, we know that many of the recipients of this message wrote back saying exactly that.

We bet they go to her next gig. We bet they bring along another potential fan.

We salute you, Luella. Great "marketing." :) - Hot Source

"Luella Widt is an amazing artist!
The rarest kind that combine the talents of great songwriting, exciting live performance, and exceptional vocal ability in a unique and genuine package”.
James Blundell

Luella Widt is the consummate performer. She is easy to work with, has a fantastic voice, a great repertoire and the ability to get the crowd dancing. Luella performed at Channel Nine Queensland's 2009 Christmas party and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend her as an entertainer.
Christine Neate, Senior Publicist NINE NETWORK AUSTRALIA

Kristian Brooks CEO, Tamworth Services Club

"We recently had Luella entertain us at our Annual Christmas function and all in attendance were 'very impressed' Luella puts an enormous amount of energy into her performance and she has a real passion for entertaining. This was the first time I had personally seen Luella in action and I am looking forward to seeing her again in the near future"
Malcolm Dunning Repco, Qld

Recent letters from People attending shows,

I just wanted to touch base with you re your application for the 2011 Urban Country Music Festival. I was fortunate enough to be in Tamworth last week with a colleague and we went to Luella's show at the Services Club on Saturday evening.

On behalf of both of us, I just wanted to say - Wow! I think it was the best show we saw all week! It was an absolute pleasure to see Luella in action. The only thing was after seeing just how incredible she was, and how involved she gets with the audience, it would be a disservice to offer her any spots we have left at Urban this year. I will contact Denise Torenbeek and see if there is still space on the Songwriters Cafe program, but I really would like to save Luella for 2012 when we can offer her a spot in the evening at maybe the Village Hotel or somewhere that best suits her show and performance style.

If only you could bottle what she offers on stage! Her energy levels, incredible voice, engagement with the crowd - she is certainly an amazing woman. When her support (sorry, I can't remember her name) sang the song from the Bodyguard movie, we had tears in our eyes! The standing ovation they received was so very well deserved.

Peter, please pass our thanks to Luella for such a brilliant show and I sincerely look forward to working with you both at the 2012 festival. We take our hats off to you!
Kind regards

You've done it again. Another top performance at this year's Tamworth
Festival. Driving a 1200kms to see you is worth it. A standing ovation says it all. We think you are great!

Kindest regards,

Looking forward to receiving your new album, as I said to you in Tamworth your show was the best out of the many fantastic shows we saw in Tamworth this year. You may not be a superstar (yet) but you are certainly a SUPER ENTERTAINER. If you ever get to Perth, we will be in the front row.
