Adrienne is a Voice and performance coach. She teaches, sings and writes in a variety of styles including rock and jazz which are my favourites. She also teaches voice and performance skills to students around the world through Skype.
Adrienne lost over 20 pounds in her life twice in her life by using diet and exercise.

Do you have a clean eating diet plan?
