Album Notes

Born and raised in Norfolk, Virginia, DieDra has been singing since she can remember. It was a God-given talent that has exploded into a gift that she shares with the world. DieDra was raised by her maternal grandfather, who wrote and sang songs in the church. DieDra was a part of the family singing group at the age of nine. As the lead singer, she has been inspired by Aretha Franklin, Patti Labelle, and Whitney Houston.

DieDra has spent a majority of her life in Jacksonville, Florida. As an ex-military spouse, she taught herself how to get around the city in search of a manager for her career. In 1996 she met the late Charlie Cross, of Brunswick, Ga. He signed her to his management company and her career began. DieDra has had the opportunity to opening up for Betty Wright, Al Green, Avant, Carl Thomas, Sunshine Anderson and recently touring with Bobby Rush.

In 1998, DieDra was signed to Boogie Down Production in The Bronx New York. Over the next 10 years, she was locked in an unproductive contract with Big East Entertainment. Nothing happened. Keith Ruff was assigned to produce DieDra’s first CD by the company. Because of Keith’s schedule, he was never able to get started. Now, 10 years later Keith Ruff of Ruff Pro Records called DieDra and found out that after all these years, her project was still incomplete. DieDra signed on with Keith under Ruff Pro Records, and in 1 month “Overcoming Hurdles” was born.

DieDra has an amazing range. She has been put in the category of Anita Baker with her silky smooth approach to slow jams and Patti Labelle with her vocal techniques. Never wanting to be compared to anyone and establishing her own sound, DieDr has gotten the title “The Blues Diva”. That she is! Her new, long awaited album “Overcoming Hurdles” will take you for a ride through the vocal talents of this 5 foot power. She is living up to her new title “The Blues Diva”.
