A Few Audience Testimonials about Richard Skipper Celebrates

Richard Skipper's splendid show "From Conway to Broadway" was the culmination of years of
extensive experience singing in theater and cabarets, helping him become the great Showman, Performer, and Producer that he is today. Am honored that he will be performing this remarkable show at The American Popular Song Society at The Green Room 42 on February 8th, 2020 to celebrate this great achievement and his birthday! So proud of you and the best is yet to come!
Linda Amiel Burns: http://www.APSSinc.org

Richard Skipper's show on Sept 28 in his hometown, Conway, SC, was simply outstanding. It was
funny, heartwarming, and brought back so many memories. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute. My 18-year-old grandson attended the show with me, and he absolutely loved it, too. Good, clean fun and exquisite talent! I would highly recommend this show and can’t wait for the next one! -Wanda Jordan Fulwood, Conway SC


Richard Skipper's story is remarkable and inspiring.  He never gave up on his dreams, and we are so
lucky that he persisted because we would never have experienced "The Magic of Believing." - an incredibly entertaining night of singing and storytelling!
