    To whom it may concern

    Katie Tracy Mahony has been a singing student of mine for several years now. From the first moment I met her, I recognised a single-minded purpose in her to be on stage, singing. Her commitment towards bettering herself is always commendable, and one of her many strong points.
    Over the past few years, this commitment has manifested itself in several productions while in school already and after school. The most recent was the title role in “Rapunzel” a Pretoria Youth Theatre production.
    In 2013 she was a finalist in the IMTA model/talent search, and she placed second overall as singer of the year.
    2014 was no different, her hard work cumulating in getting roles in professional productions and producing her own concerts.
    I have no doubt in my mind that this young lady will make a success of whatever she puts her mind to, possessing the will to succeed, not to mention the looks and voice.
    I declare this to be my truthful and honest opinion.
