Vassya Valentino, San Diego, Nov 15 Dessy's concert in San Diego is over. It feels like a love is going away, but it's great that at least her songs can stay with me. It's magical to meet and know a performer that one adores especially when the artist is such a rare combination of a great talant and a beautiful person.
Bella Litchev, San Diego, Nov 15 Dessy's really phenomenal...
