Juanita I am a woman who loves the Lord with all my heart soul and mind, and I also sing. I have been singing for 30 years. I have had the opportunity of opening for some major acts, such as, Manhattans, Delfonics, Main Ingredients, Blue Magic, Roy Ayers, Dennis Edwards, and Millie Jackson. I am also in an International Group (Taylor Made Jazz), Evolution and The All Star Band in Buffalo, New York.

I have a Gospel CD coming out shortly of which I wrote the Lyrics and my dear friend & producer Flick Williams who wrote all of the music. So please pray for me.
