Her gift has made room for her to share the stage with artists such as Tye Tribett, Donnie McClurkin, Dorinda Clark-Cole, Kim Burrell, Marvin Sapp, Marcus Cole, Natalie Wilson and S.O.P., Rizen, Nancy Jackson, Angela Spivey, Youthful Praise, Mary Mary, Eugene Cole and Purpose, Crystal Rucker, Benard Johnson, Twinkie Clark-Terrell and the Georgia Mass Choir. Sonya is no stranger to center stage as she has opened for gospel greats such as Karen Clark-Sheard, Israel Houghton and New Breed, Beverly Crawford, Timothy Wright, Douglas Miller and Shae Norman. She has also performed at multiple NAACP events. Sonya was also selected to sing back up for Universal Recording Artist, Mariah Carey, during an inspirational selection at the 2003 NBA All Star Game in Atlanta, Georgia. Sonya dazzled the audience recently at Ricky Dillard and New Generation's CD release "Unplugged...the way church used to be" with two songs from her upcoming solo project. In December 2005, Sonya's music ministry spread internationally as she ministered during a twenty-one day tour of Europe including such places as Italy, Milan, France and nearly twenty additional cities.



Sonya McGuire is a preacher's daughter who learned to sing, act, and appreciate music at a very early age. With music playing such a dominant role in the home, Sonya had no choice but to follow in the unofficial "family business". Sonya chose the drums to express her musical creativity and artistic talent. Later she developed a love for singing and directing, quickly becoming the obvious choice for musical director at her father's church. Thus, her God-given skills took her from behind the drums tot he forefront of music ministry. Sonya's unique ministry and style of praise and worship consistently positioned her as a model praise and worship leader for many churches. With the experience she gained from collaborating with other artists and choirs in the metro-Atlanta area, she co-founded the Agape. Sonya's vocal and leadership abilities were honed during a successful two-year period with the group. Sonya ultimately transitioned from Agape to form the revolutionary gospel singing force, God's Own. While with God's Own, Sonya traveled the eastern seaboard electrifying audiences, offering them an "original" praise and worship experience. With vocal ability that comparable to none and marveled by many, Sonya incorporates thought provoking lyrics with unmistakable jazz overtones into her music. Her organic songwriting and ability to blend soul, jazz, funk, praise and worship has caught the attention of many music legends and record executives.
