"God has gifted Simonetta with both physical beauty and a beautiful, inviting, inspiring voice. I think of her as a total package, a gifted and gracious woman whose songs have a unique ability to touch the "worship button" in me, and in my children. At least once a day I find myself unconsciously singing the refrain to one or more of her songs. My favorite is "You are the One" which has become an integral part of my daily prayer. Humming it while I work is now like breathing for me. I love that song!
