I'm Nicole Warner and I'm a classically trained mezzo-soprano. I'm an active soloist and small ensemble singer and I've sung everything from Bach's b minor Mass to Mozart's Requiem and from house concerts to funerals.

It's HOT right now. STE_M has been hot for years. Go on LinkedIn, any organization…
