Happy New Year!

I want to take a moment to thank everyone for your support in 2015. Whether you became a client or intended to do so, attended one of my performances, workshops or events - I am grateful and I thank you!

If you booked me to teach, present, or perform at your event, I thank you for giving me the opportunity to do so.

If I worked with you as a production assistant or concert stage manager, I thank you for trusting me with your project. Except for teaching and performing, few things bring me greater pleasure than helping another artist realize their performance dreams by doing all the behind-the-scenes work so they can focus on giving a phenomenal show.

If you are or have been one of my vocal music or acting clients or students, I am so honored to have worked with you, and I’m so excited to continue our work together, helping you bring your unique gift(s) to the world.

I intend to do more of the same in 2016, except to do all of it in bigger and better ways. I’m especially excited about partnering with new (to me) artists and venues throughout 2016, helping to bring more healing and light to our communities through music and the other performing, visual and fine arts.

I’m always looking for new clients, partners, and opportunities, so if you’re interested, email me, and let’s make some magic!

I wish everyone a wonderful year full of, as the late spiritual guru Dr. Wayne Dyer simply wrote, “Wishes Fulfilled”

TRIUMPH(ANT)

Thank You for your purchase!

Having walked away from two record deals over the course of her twenty-plus years in the music industry, singer/songwriter and performing artist Deletta Gillespie finally realized her dream of becoming a recording artist in 2013, and she's done it on her own terms.

Her first outing as a recording artist is called TRIUMPH(ant). The album is an eclectic collection of songs that celebrate triumphing over life's challenges and the lessons learned in that process. The music is firmly rooted in classic r&b and jazz, yet flavored with Gillespie' s favorite musical styles such as reggae, blues, and dance/disco. There' s even an slight nod to the hybrid of African and Celtic music .

Gillespie wrote the music for nine of the ten tracks, and co-wrote lyrics on three of those nine tracks with spoken word artist Shameeka Dream and singer/songwriter Novelair Peele.

Recorded live in front of an audience, the collection of songs on TRIUMPH(ant) are infused with messages of self-empowerment, or of social and spiritual relevance.

Since the cd's release on May 25th, it has garnered international attention, having been featured on the UK's Indie-Music-Network for four weeks straight. It has also been featured on two other podcasts, one in the UK and one in New York.

To purchase the cd -
