PRESS for PPH:

unto the stage. She brings an aura of star-like
energy and presence that makes you feel she is,
genuinely, Avril." Diandra Reviews It All
-"There is standout singing from Kelly Krauter as
the ghost of Avril Lavigne, who nails both the
vocal style and the dead-eyed sneer-stare of the
former star." Cameron Page, New York
