I have learned a few things in my lifetime musical journey.  I have learned that music is truly the language, other than math,
that can reach everyone.

"What comes from the heart, reaches the heart".

This is a statement that my mother, early on, explained to me.  It is also a statement that I have taken to heart with every
song I sing or I write.

I remember trying to mimic Jennifer Holiday singing "And I Am Telling You" .  When my mom, who was ear hustling at the time, began to chastise me for trying to be Jennifer Holiday and sing the song exactly as Jennifer Holiday did.  She told me "if you can't feel a song, you can't sing that song."

What she meant was, pantomiming someone or just regurgitating words in a certain key, does not a singer make.

The marking of a true singer is someone that can make the hairs on your arms stand up at attention. Better yet, someone that can lift you up, carry you to a place you've never been before and never physically touch you.

This is a statement that has stuck with me over the years and after looking at pictures of myself, mid song, I apparently learned this lesson all too well.

With pain on my face, eyes closed and mouth wide open, raring back as if to scream to the heavens, I am pouring heart and soul into whatever song I'm singing.

What comes from the heart reaches the heart, and I truly hope my music reaches the heart of others.

Barbria DeÁnne is a born entertainer. As a child, she was surrounded by a harmonious family; all of whom were gifted in their own right, and made beautiful music together.

A vocalist nearly all of her life, Barbria began singing at the ripe young age of three with her three older sisters, the quartet calling themselves The Haynes Sisters. That musical chord runs consistently throughout the family, as Barbria's earliest and strongest influences was her mother, Barbara Darleen Grant-Haynes whose songwriting talents were produced by Sam Cooke and was the first single released on his label, SAR Records {1960, He Cares - The Soul Stirrers featuring Johnny Taylor}, her father, James L. Haynes who was a member of the singing group "The Optimistic Quartet," Earma Jean Grant-Thompson; a cousin and Queen of Classic Jazz Piano who played with such artists as Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington; Marshall Thompson; a cousin and Grammy award winning singer with the Chi-Lites, and Tony Haynes; a cousin and Grammy award winning Songwriter and Poet.

In search of the training that would enable her to artfully develop, and take full command of her vocal abilities, she sang Gospel music in the church and later branched out and began studying classical music. After studying classical music Barbria began studying the classics which included Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald and her all time favorite Aretha Franklin.
