Connie

Connie was born in January of 1968 in Sacramento, CA. She emerged from the womb, exercising her lungs and gloriously announcing her arrival. She found her singing voice a few years later at the tender age of three.

Music has always played a vital role in Connie’s life. Her family and friends realized early on that she was born with a natural talent.

It was her obedience and commitment to God that allowed her to grow that talent for His purposes. Singing in church gave her the opportunity to develop her voice and to be used as a powerful messenger of the gospel in song.

Connie has showcased her talent at numerous events, such as the Edwin and Walter Hawkins Music & Arts Love Fellowship Conference in Tokyo, Japan and locally at the Radisson Hotel. She was also a featured performer at the Help Japan Benefit Event for earthquake relief. Connie was also honored to perform at the Narada Michael Walden Benefit Concert for Angela Bofill in San Francisco, CA. Connie shared the stage with industry legends, Carlos Santana, Bonnie Raitt, and Mary Wilson of The Supremes.

Connie has also sung with various choirs and groups, such as The Holy Cry Experience, and the 90’s R & B group, Guy. She has sung background for DOA and Wunah Productions. As part of the Holy Cry Experience, Connie has performed at Spirit West Coast in Monterey CA, and the group has performed two sold out concerts at the regal Crest Theater in Sacramento. She has been invited to and has performed as a solo artist at Berean’s Christian Store and The Bridge Christian Book Store, both in Sacramento, CA and Borders Books in Roseville, CA.

Connie has been featured at the Bobby Jones Gospel Conference in Miami, FL, the Gospel Announcers Guild (GAG) in Seattle, WA, the Gospel Music Workshop of America (GMWA) in St. Louis, MO, the Urban Gospel Alliance (UGA) in Riverside, CA, the GAG event in Richmond, VA, the GAG event in Chicago, IL, and the GAG event in San Antonio, TX. She has been invited to appear and has headlined twice at The African American Holy Ghost Conference in Medford, OR.

Connie has shared her beautiful ministry at the Annual Gospel Superfest hosted by Gospel Announcer Tommie Goss of Radio Station 103.5 in Sacramento, CA, the Annual Pastor Appreciation Breakfast sponsored by Radio Station KFIA, the 20th Annual Stellar Awards Praise Break in Houston, TX, and she has recorded music for the Tears of Hope Project, which benefits children with AIDS.

Connie is the recipient of Gospel Music’s Rising Star Award, which she received at the 4th Annual Sounds of Soul Awards. She was also nominated and then received the most votes to take home the statue for Favorite Gospel Artist (Female) at the Central Valley Stammy Awards.

Along with a successful career in the Health Insurance field, Connie is a dedicated and key member of the Praise and Worship Team at Bayside Church of South Sacramento and she has raised four (almost grown) children as a single parent. Her children understand and support Connie in her ministry. They realize the beauty and importance of their Mother’s gift and they are happy to share her with the world.

Connie is a talented vocalist, songwriter and vocal arranger. Her faith, uncompromising integrity, dedication, and commitment to hard work are evident, as she exercises her God-given gifts.
