Biography

Why this name? L'Dajai (pronounced el da jay) comes from Leslie Derine (LD) and Laurie Jean (LJ). Put together to make a word. It represents the Christ centered unity that both Laurie and Leslie have with each other.

Band History:
Both Laurie and Leslie have sung for many years prior to joining voices in 1996, and when they did it was as if that had always sung together. Their voices blended perfectly. Although when they joined voices they were singing secular music, the mission GOD had plan for them was not yet foreseen. After being separated for a few years, God allowed spiritual growth on both ladies allowing them to establish a relationship with Christ and then they could fulfill the mission set forth for them in 2004. Laurie and Leslie were both signed to a local independent label Sound Lab Entertainment where they were promoted as solo artist, but assisted each other with background vocals on many songs. In 2007 it became clear to them that singing solo still was not the mission set forth, but in order to make the impact that God wanted they would need to join forces as a group and that group being LDajai. With the music production from Leslie's husband LeSean (MottonLava) and graphic design from Laurie's husband Brian (B-Nada) the mission was ready to move forward. Both ladies and their husbands are currently active members in their church homes, serving in many compasities.

Laurie has been featured on songs with artist such as; God's Child, GODSON, Anita Symone to name a few. Laurie was also nominated as "Solo Artist of the Year" with the Gospel Music Association (GMA) out of NYC in 2005. Leslie has been featured on songs with Michael Fugitt, God's Child and Anita Symone also. Leslie was interview on Family Life TV which aired out of Western PA in 2005.
