Describe your music to our readers.What do you bring different to the table?What kind of feedback have you had thus far?What have been some of your challenges?
As a woman of God I bring the spirit of God! My ultimate goal is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. I want people to be changed by the music that God has given me. I bring imperfection. I know that I am imperfect but the God I serve has placed a perfect vision in my heart and that is to bring the lost closer to Christ thru the spoken word and song.

I have faced many challenges on this journey! American Idol was one of the hardest but truly one of the greatest inspirations to never stop! Prior to being on the show, I’d never imagined being there but now I see so clear the plan that God has for me. So I thank American Idol for turning one of the most horrific moments in my life, into a life changing experience!

In May 2012, I will release my first full CD titled, “Project:Take It Back!” This CD will be for everyone! From Traditional sounds, Urban feel to Contemporary Worship. It will speak to the hearts of many. Along with the music begins a mission to “take back” every thing the enemy has stole from us in life.
I have received help from some great people: My family and friends and church family. Reggie Gay-mentor, Eric Richardson-encouragement, new Vocal Coach, Ametria Dock-Creative advise.
