“Most know her as a Gospel recording Artist. But she is so much more than that… She is a doer, an encourager, an empowerer, an inspirer. But most importantly, she’s an awesome woman of God. She allows the spiritual gifts God gave her to manifest through her music, her marketing, her prison ministry and her Vision Board ministries. She’s the real deal. It is a distinct honour and privileged to have known and worked with my dear friend and colleague Sonnie Day.”
