Miss Clara Helms is one of the most talented performers I have had the pleasure to watch in my years being a judge on various ‘talent’ shows. In my mind, it’s a mystery as to why Clara is not already a global star!

Clara is simply one of the most unique artists of our generation. Her vocal style, beauty and stage presence are absolutely breathtaking. Add to this a timeless and nurturing soul and you have the one and only Clara. Remarkable power, range and charismatic stage presence. I love her voice.
I have known Céline Dion since she signed with Sony Music over 32 years ago where IPaul Farberman (17 years Management for Celine Dion)
was Vice President of Business Affairs and was then honored to have worked with René Angélil in managing her career for many years. I’ve seen Céline sing “All By Myself” countless times and seen a number of very good singers perform that song but none of them with the vocal range, power and subtlety to match Céline….Until Now!!
Clara Helms uses her background as a Soprano and incredible range to deliver a powerful, passionate, recording of this song that will no doubt bring audiences to their feet when performed live.
Until then, sit back and enjoy Clara’s truly outstanding recording. Bravo!!
