Lee Evans, Music Producer (Cindy Lauper, Mark Anthony, Queen Latifah, Harry Belafonte, Wu Tang Clan):
“I am hoping for Indiggo to be the next major success story to come out as they are extremely hardworking, talented, and gifted artists. Artists of this caliber are what the American music industry and pop culture of today is sorely missing. They have a very unique style of entertainment that will cater to a broad base young American market.”
Richard Stumpf, President of Imagem Music USA:
“Mihaela and Gabriella are two of the most hardworking, passionate artists I have ever met. It doesn't surprise me that their talent and drive were recognized by Swizz, Jay-Z, and Kanye when they opted to use them on the Watch the Throne album. The girls are a triple threat as writers, artists and actresses. We are all excited for their upcoming musical and TV show.”
Debbie Ganz, Owner of TWINS TALENT, NYC:
“From the minute we met, Mihaela & Gabriela, the “Indiggo” twins, we knew that they had a tremendous future for themselves in the United States. It is very rare that we meet twins that are not only beautiful, but they are talented, they sing, they act, they model, they speak several languages and much more. They don’t need to be triplets for us to call them a Triple threat. Not only are Mihaela & Gabriela great actresses, but they are very bright ladies. We have met 100,000 families of twins around the world and we recognize talent with a “special niche.” Twins Talent is lucky to have them as part of our world of twins and we would love for them to expand their talents here in the US. They are many twins & multiples around, but the INDIGGO twins will leave you with the lasting impression.”
