Let’s see what Stephen Amer has to say about Vocalzone!
“As a full time musician, performer and choir leader singing professionally for almost 20 years, it is important for me to make sure that my voice is reliable. Vocalzone has been my “go to” for many years if a cold impacts on my voice or I have vocal fatigue and need some help to keep a clear voice. Their natural active ingredients are an important reason why I use them (as well as the taste!)”
