I started out singing in the church choir at the tender age of 5 and have continued to sing solos my home Little Zion Baptist church of New Orleans La.

I have sang for countless wedding ceremonies and funerals. I had the opportunity to sing in the stage play “Church Mess” in Birmingham Al and Miami Florida. I am a Financial Aid Counselor at Northshore Technical Community College for 3 years. I also currently teach a line dance class in Picayune Ms called Vee Vee’s Line dance class since October 2017.
