Jessica is the “BEST”! We so love how she communicates with her audience. Her voice is beautiful and you can understand every word, but most of all her love of people “oozes” out of her while she is singing and performing. She is blessed with a wonderful talent and a beautiful spirit.

Jessica Best not only has an extraordinary talent but her dedication to the vocal arts and her work ethic are second to none. Her beautiful voice and clear diction in a range of genres, demonstrated via an impressive repertoire are enhanced by the way she obviously feels the music. Jess communicates the mood and message of every song through her performances. She is not only a talented singer but a gifted and committed teacher who inspires her pupils.

“Jessica Best is among the most talented, passionate, inspired performers and teachers I’ve ever worked with. A true and thorough understanding of both the music and herself combine to make stunning art every time. Two thumbs up!”

Elizabeth Dorsey Creative Arts Director at BASIC College Ministries

I‘ve known Jessica Ann Best for seven years and have enjoyed watching her growth from graduate student in Vocal Performance to working professional and teacher. Along with her musical gifts and accomplishments she brings discipline and organizational skills to everything she undertakes. Her joy of singing all music, from opera to sacred music to Broadway, and love of guiding younger artists are manifest in her approach to performing and teaching. As I person who has been attending the theater and opera for over 60 years I know the “real deal” when I see it. Jessica is the real deal in this most difficult of art forms.”

Strong interpersonal and leadership skills coupled with extensive classical and worship training, allow Jessica Best’s vibrant, engaging personality to be the resource you need, whether as a performer, vocal instructor, or musical director. Whether you want someone to teach your worship team how to sing for longer periods of time, someone to engage a large audience through a riveting performance, or something in-between, Jessica may just be the person you’re looking for.

“Jessica is a skilled and patient instructor who has helped transform my son into a strong and confident singer and performer.”

Melinda Lewandowski Pittsford, NY

Jess is a beautiful soul….I say this because when she sings, she sings from her soul. The emotion is palpable…and unknown to the listener, you are suddenly a part of the story she is telling. The thing I find most remarkable is that when Jess sings an aria, art song or Broadway tune to a crowded hall, I feel as if she is singing solely to me. What a gift!
