What makes Deidra’s story so incredible is that her mom, Joleen, was diagnosed with a brain tumor and given only months to live, all the while pregnant with Deidra. We are very excited to report that not only did Joleen live long enough to give birth to Deidra, but she is alive and well today! Deidra’s life is truly a miracle that she does not take for granted!
Deidra began her career in the well-known vocal group TRUTH under the direction of Roger Breland, before moving on to minister with Melissa Greene (Avalon), Anthony Evans, Switchfoot, ZoeGirl, Rebecca St. James, Avalon, Kirk Franklin, CeCe Winans, Priscilla Shirer, Thelma Wells, Kevin White, Perry Stone, Fred Price and Dwight Thompson. Deidra toured with Dove Award Winner, Natalie Grant and sang with Natalie for Women of Faith Conferences nationwide.
Deidra has a heart for church ministry and is dedicated to true worship. Deidra says, "My heart is to minister within the body of Christ... My passion is to see our churches whole again while fulfilling God's ultimate plan to spread His Word. I hope to not only present a concert, but also present the One who is truly famous and that is JESUS!"
I think Deidra’s thoughts regarding her calling resonate with most of us when she says, “I feel privileged and honored that He would choose me. I also feel a tremendous sense of responsibility to honor Him the best I can through the gifts with which He has entrusted me.”
