Poetry, song lyrics, and music for your special someone...


There are lots of sweet ways
to express your heart.
Let Verses to Go
give you the start.
We can write up just lyrics
or prepare you a song
To sing it, record it
in draft won't take long.
A simple, short project may be
ready in days
Give us more time to prepare it more ways.
Information from you about whom you are gifting 
Will allow us to prepare
something uplifting.
Perhaps, we'll perform a song
live on the spot
For a beautiful keepsake
-- "forget me not".

What They Are Saying About Verses to Go

VIRTUAL SINGING TELEGRAM (PRERECORDED VIDEO & LIVE ZOOM APPEARANCE WITH PROGRAM KEEPSAKE): "Paula was fantastic. She was prompt at putting everything together for the event. She put a lot of extra touches in to it. She is very knowledgeable about all types of music and very talented." ~S Regilo, Reading, PA (5 of 5 stars on

CUSTOM-PERSONALIZED SOCIALLY DISTANCED SINGING TELEGRAM: "Paula was fantastic!  It's clear that Paula put in a ton of work to prepare and customize the performance, resulting in a really fun and memorable experience for us." ~ M Bauer, Raleigh, NC (5 of 5 stars on

"Outstanding in every respect!  My sister's 70th birthday occurred in July, 2019 and my other sister and I wanted to do something really special to mark the occasion. Fortunately gig salad guided us to Paula Snyder. Paula is an accomplished musician who went far beyond anything I expected to make Marian's 70th birthday an especially memorable occasion. Paula stayed in close and constant contact with us to insure she had all the details of Marian's life correct and then incorporated them in a :45 performance that was the highlight of the day. I cannot say enough for the effort and attention Paula incorporated into the planning of the performance. Even though she had two other performances prior to arriving at Marian's home, her work in setting up the performance made me feel the birthday gig was the only one she had to plan for! All in all, just a wonderful experience for all involved. I can recommend Paula and her due diligence and performance standards with no hesitation to anyone looking for a first class musical artist who works diligently to create a memorable experience for her clients." ~ S Marshall, VA (5 of 5 Star review on

CUSTOM VERSE TO GO / SERENADE: "Dear Paula, Many thanks for a job well done for Marian's 70th birthday.  Your creativity and attention to detail made July 16, 2019 unique for all of us.  It will be a pleasure to add one more positive review to the many you have already earned!" ~ Steve & Karen

"FANTASTIC!  Paula was AWESOME. We contacted her during the week of our event and she still managed to write INCREDIBLE verses all about my mother and sing some of my mother's favorite songs. She is diligent, competent, entertaining, extremely talented as a pianist, guitarist, singer and writer, and she made my Mother's 80th birthday EXTRA special. Her fees were more than reasonable. It was just an AMAZING experience and we would recommend her very highly! Thanks again Paula for a memorable experience!"  ~ P Logan, Roanoke, VA (2/2015 - Chapel Hill NC event)

SINGING TELEGRAM with VERSE TO Go: "Fantastic all the way around!  Paula did a wonderful job for me. I had her sing a love song to my girlfriend at work, and Paula even offered to write a custom poem using some of the highlights from our relationship. I literally couldn't have asked for more.  Then to top it off, Paula was involved in a car accident on the way to her performance... but somehow she managed to find a ride and still get there the same day to make sure it went according to plan.  It doesnt get more professional than that, you just dont find service and dedication like that anywhere anymore. I was extremely happy, and so was the girlfriend. It was perfect."  (5 of 5 star review through ~ J Albritton, High Point, NC

SERENADE WITH VERSES TO GO: "Memorable Birthday Surprise!  Paula went above and beyond my expectations to create a very personal and heart warming birthday surprise. She was attentive, punctual, extremely detail oriented, adaptable, and sings beautifully! Wonderful experience, thank you Paula." ~ M Williams, Raleigh NC (12/2015 - 5 of 5 star review on

75th BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION SERENADE WITH VERSES TO GO POEM: "I contacted Paula less than a week before my brother's 75th birthday, with the hopes of surprising him with some music at his home in Raleigh, N.C. Paula checked her schedule, found she had an opening that day, and immediately began preparations. Her attention to detail and enthusiasm combined to create appropriate celebration music, and a tailored poem. She was thoughtful and considerate, and professional, which all made for an excellent, memorable performance. Glad I was able to make a connection with her." ~ K Pates, Sun City, AZ (12/2015 - 5 of 5 star review on

Great experience! Fun! Paula really captured what I was feeling! Thanks!    ~ G Ballard, Raleigh, NC

Thanks again for such a great job on the song you wrote for us! I'm sure Bill & I will treasure it for many years. Let me know if you want a reference for potential clients.    ~J Jones, Cary, NC
