Very good ,clear reading

Subject: Good voice, poor pronounciation
Really good energy in her voice. I appreciate her work. However, the fact that she didn't seem to have any idea how to pronounce many of the names, especially the French ones, almost drove me bonkers. I still haven't gotten over "Perry" for "Pierre".
