“If you are new to Vincitore, let me try to prepare you. She can sing like an angel and a demon. She’s versatile and sings jazz, blues, R&B, and soul and somehow makes them all sound wonderful…[she’s] a great singer in a field populated by good singers. She has the tone and range that can make you fall in love, get angry, or weep from the sheer emotion of the song. She’s also a very savvy songwriter who has crafted these songs perfectly to suit her vocal approach.” – Professor Johnny P’s Jukebox
