Starr

Gospel Recording Artist, Model, Actress, Speaker and Writer…Starr: Let’s just say the name speaks for itself.  Born and raised in Kansas City, Kansas, she began singing as a child in church.  After hearing a song titled "Our Love" sung by Natalie Cole, she understood that songs were meant to be sung with meaning from her heart. It was at that point in her life that she knew her passion and gift was to sing with deep heart felt emotion and truth.

Starr is a writer of songs, poetry, short stories and dramatic readings. There was a time when the popular duo, “Peaches and Herb”, reminded her classmates of herself and her brother. They nicknamed her Peaches and her older brother’s name was of course Herb which literally drove.

Her experience singing in groups, choirs, school musicals, theme parks, local television shows and weddings helped to propel her to higher levels. She felt that after singing for years with her three sisters in the gospel group “Yielded Vessels”, it was time to follow the Lord’s leading to a different level in ministry. So, she branched off on her own to work on her solo project titled "Required".

As a soloist, she was chosen to sing at the “Power to End Stroke Tour” hosted by Dr. Bobby Jones which was sponsored by The American Heart Association in Illinois in 2007. Some of her gospel music influences include Vanessa Bell Armstrong, Yolanda Adams, Dorinda Clark Cole, Vickie Winans and Lashun Pace Rhodes just to name a few.

As her passion grows stronger to reach out to the lost, she reflects upon her own life experiences and is committed to leading others to Christ through the gifts and talents He has given her. Just like the Star of Bethlehem was used by God in the early days, so shall Starr be used to lead His people back to Christ. As the Word of God tells us “Even the wise men followed the Star to Christ!”

On a part time basis, Starr is an Independent Beauty Consultant for Mary Kay Cosmetics and currently serves as a Chairman of the Missouri Gospel Announcers Guild for the Kansas City Area. On a full time basis, she works as a Project Designer for a major Utility Company. But more importantly, she is always a servant of God who is humbled everyday by the calling on her life to sing, write and obey the will of our Father, Jesus Christ.
