“Just Ordinary People”
Touch Independent Recording Guest Artist
When it comes down to it, we're just ordinary people with extraordinary love. “Not ordinary people ever find a love so good as yours... So glad I found you! God's love is in simple people like you and me. When we look at each other you and I can see God. We see God everyday, but we fail to recognize the presence of God. HE does see you and loves you, and recognizes you. Yes, even you, just ordinary people. QUEEN DIVA COMMANDS YOU TO DANCE!” ~ Malcolm B. Smith (CEO of Touch Independent Records)
Anointed, Powerful and Prophetic are just some of the words often used to describe
Queen Diva’s gift of song. She is quick to share her testimony of her faith in God, love for serving others and sharing her gift of music to inspire, encourage, heal and welcoming the presence of God (LOVE) to shower upon all who hear her voice! She is so blessed, humbled and honored to bless the world through song!
“I used to record and loved doing session work for Boyd Jarvis and DJ Lord House many years ago but I wasn’t comfortable with some of the lyrics often associated with Dance/House music. Once I discovered Inspirational/Gospel/House music I was in love! I thank God for the opportunity to record with Touch Independent Records and I’m looking forward to recording, singing and writing more Electronica/Dance/Pop and Gospel/House music that will uplift and empower all who will listen as well as make God smile!” ~ Queen Diva
