Born and raised in Benton Harbor, Michigan, Diane grew up in a family of 10 children where she lived and breathed music. She initially sang gospel music with her father and then as a member of the church choir, following the path laid by many prominent American performers past and present honed their musical roots.
Diane’s first break came as the lead vocalist with R&B vocal trio A.S.A.P. Although each member was an American, their greatest success came in the UK, and in Japan where they were signed to Columbia Japan. As the only American group performing covers of Japanese songs at the time A.S.A.P. achieved major pop charts success with their albums, Graduation, and Boyfriends & Girlfriends. Both albums reached Gold sales status and A.S.A.P. went on to present their own Japanese TV show and sell 4 million records.
A long time Los Angeles resident, Diane’s two year engagement as a featured vocalist with the multi-talented entertainer, Wayne Brady, in his show at the Venetian Las Vegas, with whom she also appeared at Carnegie Hall, afforded her the opportunity to develop a live show of her own. A natural talent, Diane is an attractive, vivacious, energetic live performer with the ability to deliver a variety of packed evening of inspired vocal performances.
