When did you know you had the voice that you had?
My church choir was my first and true inspiration! Some years later friends convinced me to sing in the school talent show and the response from my peers was so positive I continued to sing and the rest is history!
What happened after you recognized or realized you had a voice and you wanted to sing?
My family has always and even to this day been my biggest supporters! So my Dad recorded my first record “Oceans of Love” produced by Gino Washington, the uncle of Keith Washington. I met my husband Greg Dokes, pianist and music director extraordinaire, and we formed the group back2back. We toured doing theater and concerts. Though now deceased, the Great Greg Dokes’ legacy lives on.

I want to write a song that will become a classic! The goal is that the song be appreciated by generation after generation and for generations to come.
And Detroit seems to be a place bursting with talent. What kind of venues are there for Detroit musicians? Are there many?
Detroit hosts music in arenas, night clubs, restaurant’s, festivals and parades for every genre! There is even a music “Winter Blast” concert series!! Detroit will always, arguably so, be the music capital of the world!
