“We invited Jenny Oaks Baker to perform at the Nu Skin Woman to Woman luncheon which is held as part of the 2012 Americas Convention. In recent years we’ve had vocalists and a wide variety of performers as entertainment, but having Grammy-nominated Jenny Oaks Baker was unique and something very special. She is incredibly talented and all of the ladies attending the meeting were mesmerized by her abilities. Jenny and her staff were very professional and easy to work with. Our only regret is that she couldn’t keep playing all afternoon!” – Shelley Gardner, Events Manager, Nu Skin Enterprises
