Biography

Nicole has FINALLY completed her highly anticipated 15 track album entitled "BEYOND TRADITION/BEYOND THE FOUR WALLS." Written,arranged and executively produced by Lyrical D.I.V.A. herself.

"LYRICAL D.I.V.A." (D.evoted I.nto the V.ision of GOD's A.nointing.) She considers herself to be an inspirational rapper, determined to represent God to the fullest wherever she goes & in whatever she does!

The quintessential purpose of this ministry is HEALING & RESTORATION! not only for the OUTside; the streets and the lost sheep, but also for those still HURTING & WOUNDED on the INside of the church. Coming from the streets, LYRICAL D.I.V.A. remembers what it is like to be lonely with a very large extended family & a boyfriend. She later realized her past was ordained for her future.

Realizing that it was time to go beyond the four walls, beyond tradition of the church to show the world, there is a method to all this madness. She is determined to help destroy the "EXCLUSIVE COUNTRY CLUB MENTALITY!" of the church.

Having her own unique & original style, LYRICAL D.I.V.A. displays life only as she knows it, past & present. Most importantly, LYRICAL D.I.V.A. exposes her own pain. Some call her vibe "GANGSTER," she calls it "REALITY!" She discovered her purpose in life when family & friends began to sing & request new jingles she lefted on her answering machine.

LYRICAL D.I.V.A. entered the hiphop arena 6 years ago, 3 years ago she came out with a few songs on a demo, just to test the water. The response was overwhelming, but she still didn't find her own vibe. Now 3 years later, she is ready & hyped about finishing her 1st full 17 track LP! With songs like "HOSTAGE," being saved & STILL chained & bound. "WAKE UP/SISTA," this song is for sisters of ALL races & genre stuck in that "GANGSTER STREET LIFE" mentality. "LIFE," on the reggae tip - this song's about LIVING in the midst of wanting to DIE! & "BEYOND THE FOUR WALLS," this is about the night the Lord called LYRICAL D.I.V.A. into ministry. She will not front what she hasn't experience, her lyrics pull you into her life.

LYRICAL D.I.V.A. will admit she can not tell anyone how to live, without sharing some of the struggles & bitter battles she had to overcome, let go & trust God to handle. She can't rap "JESUS IS THE ANSWER," without testifying about the life-long issues, the anger, she endured before & AFTER turning her life over to God. Being painfully truthful, she had to turn on the hypocrisy that she found in HER own life. This was AFTER salvation. This is "Reality Rap!"

LYRICAL D.I.V.A. has shared the stage with Albertina Walker, MEN of STANDARD just to name few! Many compare her style to the likes of TUPAC because one can feel her lyrics, MARY J. BLIGE due to her stage presence. But LYRICAL D.I.V.A. inisists she only being who God ordained her to be...herself! Giving colorful sometimes funny yet radical lyrics, LYRICAL D.I.V.A. pushes herself everytime she ministers in music, whether it be 5-15 people or thousands, she strives to take her anointing to the next level each & every time she gets on the mic. Even though she is saved, LYRICAL D.I.V.A. still has her favorite hip-hop influences TUPAC, Biggie but thanks God for those who spiritually enlightened her - Bishop. Noel Jones, Bishop. TD Jakes, Sandra Riley, Jackie McCollough, Rod Parsley, Bishop. Eddie Long, Pastor. Joel Osteen, Kirk Franklin, Fred Hammond, Bishop. Marvin Donaldson, Kim Burrell & The Clark Sisters.

LYRICAL D.I.V.A. attends GREATER PENTECOSTAL TEMPLE in Kansas City, KS- under the leadership of Bishop. Marvin E. Donaldson - since childhood (www.gptchurch.org) where she is a faithful choir member & she is also a mentor to the youth.

Finally, LYRICAL D.I.V.A. is currently under the management of Joann Stewart, who lives in Atlanta, GA.
