“Please know how much you are appreciated here at CCU! We would love to have you back in the future. I will continue to hold you in God's light and love as you do this work. I see that you are a mighty instrument for God. By the way, I chose that title for the message, "Make me an instrument" after I saw your Yanni video. If I can ever be of service to you, don't hesitate to ask."

“I was such a joy to have you at Christ Church Unity, Orlando. I was so moved and inspired by not only your level of mastery, but by the tremendous degree you give of yourself. I think I can speak for the spiritual community on that. You clearly communicate you consciousness and heart – not only in your performance, but in the assertive and powerful way you conducted the workshops! . . . and please know that we noticed your “OT” on the clock on Sunday. Thank you for your tremendous dedication this weekend.”

“Darlene Koldenhoven is a rich, beautiful talent. Her voice is angelic and her demeanor is as well. She came to our spiritual center and sang, played the piano and taught a wonderful workshop. I was expecting Darlene to sing from her tracks for the celebration service but she is so talented, I discovered, that she also plays the piano. She did an excellent job at playing the songs that she was introduced to that same hour!
Her workshop contains valuable information. However, the exercises that she took us through helped us to get the concepts in our bones, so to speak. The vocal identification helped us to sing from a powerful place. And it was great fun singing the SISTER ACT songs.
You would give your community a blessing by having Darlene Koldenhoven come to sing and offer a workshop at your center. She is blessed and a blessing!”

“Darlene Koldenhoven performed at La Crescenta Church of Religious Science on Sunday, June 17th, 2007. She is an amazingly gifted singer, songwriter, and teacher. Her songs and her voice are beyond beautiful, and the congregation responded to her with standing ovations. Working with Darlene was a joy. She is a consummate professional with a wonderful energy and spirit that touches everyone in a special way. We look forward to having her return to our congregation as soon as her busy schedule allows.”

“It was a great privilege to have a mini-concert and vocal workshop given by someone of the caliber of Ms. Koldenhoven. The vocal range, control and authority she possesses are remarkable and moving. Everyone in attendance was captivated. Some members of the audience were moved to tears by her singing. Having someone like Ms. Koldenhoven actually demonstrate the healing power of the voice was illuminating. It was an expanding experience, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically. It was a marvelous morning and another workshop is avidly anticipated by all who attended.”
