"... rare is the singer whose voice projects the
characteristics and personality of a song. Whether it is a sassy
jazz tune, lyrical ballad or the passionate act one ending power duet,
Christy Tarr-McVey does just that. She embraces a song, ingests it
then let's it soar with impeccable phrasing and the purist of tone"
Christy has done many concerts with her husband - J. Mark McVey and is featured in a duet on his newest CD "If You Really Knew Me".
