This is where Diana first experienced the soulful stirrings of gospel music. The voices in the choir were healing, uplifting, comforting and inspirational.

Having spent over 10 years traveling bi-coastally performing Reggae, Afro-pop and classic R & B, Diana developed a passion for world percussion and incorporates those contagious rhythms in her songs. Having performed a variety of musical styles, Diana is now defining her own voice.Music is Diana’s vessel of transformation.

Lyrics

Amazing, Perfect & Beautiful

Written By: Diana Lynn

You are Amazing and Perfect and Beautiful, Just the way God wanted you to be.
I am Amazing and Perfect and Beautiful, If your not sure take a look and see.

When I look upon your face, it's always your light I see.
I celebrate that you're different then I
The lyric to my melody

That's why I say that you're Amazing and Perfect and Beautiful, Just the way God wanted you to be.
We're all Amazing and Perfect and Beautiful, If you look, I promise that you'll see

Sometimes I fall and become blind to all the gifts God's give to me
But when I look up into you eyes you see more than I ever could see

That's why I say that you're Amazing and Perfect and Beautiful, Just the way God wanted you to be.
We're all Amazing and Perfect and Beautiful, If you look, I promise that you'll see

Whenever I stand beneath a tree, it seems the birds sing just for me
The plants and flower all amazing colors, all painted so perfectly.

That's why I say that you're Amazing and Perfect and Beautiful, Just the way God wanted you to be.
We're all Amazing and Perfect and Beautiful, If you look, I promise that you'll see

Say Goodnight

Written By: Daian Lynn & Matt Davis

Say Goodnight

I’ll watch over you
Through the darkest coldest winter
And my love will see us through
I have felt the touch of your hand
And I know it to be true

You know that I will stand by you.
No matter how far you may roam
I’ll make sure you get back home
Cause I have seen the light of your smile
And I now it to be true

Nothings new they say
It’s all been done before
Lines and shadows are drawn
We unlock no door\All that’s left to do is
Close the door and say goodnight

Maybe you’ll watch over me
Through a dark and lonely winter
And maybe then you’ll understand me
You will see the light of my heart
And you’ll know it to be true

Nothings new they say
It’s all been done before
Lines and shadows are drawn
We unlock no door
All that’s left to do is
Close the door and say goodnight

Live Love Dream

Written By: Diana Lynn

Live Love Dream

When we live like little children
Then we love like little children
Let us dream like little children
To create a world at peace

Live Love Dream
Create of world at peace

We can learn from or children
They teach us everyday
Children? They don’t see black or white
Why do we teach them this way?
Sometimes I look at the state of the world
Feeling sad because I am only one
I ask , How can I make a difference?
The answer is one by one

Live Love Dream
Create a world at peace

When we think of this earth, like our mother
Giving all that she has to her children
By conserving today, were ensuring the way
For new generations to come
Surely we all can remember
How to look at another and see a new friend
We have to reach out to our brothers
Not until then will poverty end, we make it end

Live Love Dream
Create a world at peace

We are the next generation
Teach us the best that you can
Teach us that all men are equal
And discrimination will end
Teach us to all live together
Teach us to love one another
Teach us to dream of the season
When this world will live as one
