"I have known Demet for her outstanding performances as a musical artist, actress in cinema and television and her solo stage shows. Then I have come to work with her at Imaj Entertainment Company as a dubbing actress in Walt Disney's animated film The Princess & The Frog. She was the Turkish voice for Tiana. Next to her mastery in dubbing the dialogue parts, she gave extraordinary performance in singing as expected. I would be delighted to work with her, especially in a stage musical in the near future.
