”Beautiful voice! Beautiful girl! Simply beautiful!” (Round About Jazz Band)

““Ooh Boy” has a sweetly romantic quality, and Saldenha favors a sweet vocal style that makes this type of song perfect for her.” (Alex Henderson - ReviewYou.com)

“One thing that Saldenha is good at is hitting the high notes, and when she does that, she can sound a bit like Deniece Williams (a well known R&B singer who was big in the late 1970s and 1980s and enjoyed some major hits back then).” (Alex Henderson - ReviewYou.com)
