Biography

Hailing from the Windy City, my singing career began in the church choir at the tender age of thirteen. I have a rich background in gospel and jazz, and my bright, witty humor, stylishly funky yet jazzy personality, and gifts in music and writing have earned me the title of 'Diva' in my own right!

Gospel music is and always will be my first love. Over the years, I've traveled with various gospel community choirs and groups, including touring in Europe, and opened for gospel greats such as Donnie McClurkin, the Mississippi Mass Choir, and the Canton Spirituals. My professional musical theater experience includes starring as Power Woman in the Off-Broadway production of 'Menopause theMusical', (the longest running show in Indianapolis history), and performing in “The 60’s Sensation”, “Cabaret’s Top 40”, and "Divas!", portraying roles such as Bessie Smith, Big Mama Thornton, and Aretha Franklin with the American Cabaret Theater in Indianapolis, Indiana. I've also starred in locally produced gospel stage-plays-“The Set Up” and “Talkin’ ‘Bout the Church Choir”.

If you have ever had the privilege of seeing me on stage, or even in the choir, you know that my stage presence is captivating. When I take the stage, I sho'nuff mean business! My motto is, "Every good gift comes from above, and I want to make sure that God gets the glory in everything I do!"

Currently, I sing with national gospel recording artist, Minister Napoleon Williams & True Friends True Praise and I am in the works of completing my debut gospel project (to be released later this year). My main goal is to use my gifts to bring encouragement and hope to people of all ages through the use of the arts!

My other interests include writing comedic stageplays (I have 2 that are already copy-righted and ready for production!), writing children's literature, and stand-up comedy.
