Rhonda Benin: Guestbook

Steve DeGroodt

November 4, 2007


There are singers that when performing sing AT the audience ...but there are the other kind of singers who when performing, sing from the heart and truely connect WITH the audience.

Fri. night (Nov. 2 '07) at the Hollywood Studio Bar and Grill you truely connected with the audience. With the gift of your smooth
and soulful voice and a top notch trio of musicians (piano, bass and drums), you had the entire Bar and Grill room in the palm of your hand. Indeed, you took us, the L A audience, to a beautiful place musically. Thanks for the great ride. Can't wait for you to play a return engagement !

Take care,
Steve De Groodt

Last night in LA Rhonda came home. Yes she did! Her always classy disposition and quality voice made this a wonderful evening. The musicians that accompanied her were top of the line. Will catch her as often as I can. Love you Rhonda.

Rhonda, it was good talking with you last night. I got a copy of "A Matter of the Heart" today, and all I can say is DAMN! I knew you loved to sing as far back as high school (wasn't Chamber Singers fun). You are now officially living the dream – never stop.

Much love, Stephen

Beautiful music today on the rooftop garden in the sun! Thank you for the lovely gift.

And keep the conversation going about our music. We've got to reclaim not only it, but our entire heritage/legacy. It is so rich and beautiful and I would dare say, one of the ways that we can heal this global community. Peace!

What can i say. For the first time in my life i am speakless. Your CD a matter of the heart was absolutely fabulous. I have known you for many, many years. And i thnk this is the first time i really got to hear your beautiful mellow velvety smooth voice. I am having a very hardtime picking my favorite song, so i will pick them all. I am so proud of you for going after your dream and making it happen. When you say " if you can't sing let bein sing it" you really meant it. To my favorite Superstar thanks for bein a good friend and always keeping intouch, you couldn't have any idea what your frinedship means to me. Keep up the good work. All my best, Love Ricky

Such a delight to know that a former classmate makes such beautiful music with her voice. I enjoy this CD because I can relate to all aspects of the songs. Proud to say I knew her when.

This album is soulful, classic and hot. The choice of songs run a gamut of blues to the 70's. the song "I give him all my love" makes you wish for a rainy day a fire place and someone to love. I enjoyed it eimmensely.

Hello Rhonda,

I finally got the cd out of the car to email you...We left Canmore Tuesday morning and were trying to figure out who we were going to listen to on the way home. It did not take much time to decide, we all agreed that your music would be the one to take us there. We chose well it is damm awesome.....It was the best ride home, the music was clean beautiful, and to the heart. I am happy for you for putting your stamp on your own recording. It was just a joy to listen to.
May your journey keep you happy.
Loads of Love and laughter,
Mardelle and family
