Diana has been wowing audiences for years. When she was just 7 years old, she won first place singing in a talent contest. Her heartfelt, soaring vocals have been moving and inspiring audiences since that day. Diana even had the honor of singing for Pope John Paul II.
“I grew up singing. I remember Sunday dinners at my Grandparents house as a little girl. The family gathered around the piano, my Grandfather on accordion, singing songs in melodic harmony. Singing was always a part our lives. I can still hear the laughter, and feel the love from those days. Little did I know then, those were some of the best days of my life. Those are my roots…… music, love, laughter!”
“I love to sing because I know how music touches lives and can put a smile on someone’s face. As a young girl, I was inspired to sing in the Church choir. Some years later, I had the privilege to sing in the San Francisco Chamber Choir for Pope John Paul II at Candlestick Park. That was an awesome, unforgettable experience, which moved me in a very profound way.”
Diana continued to sing with top performing bands as well as her own solo career. “I am a “rocker” at heart. I grew up with rock ‘n roll, and loving the storytelling of country music. As much as I love singing at Church, which is more traditional, I always wanted to “rock” as well! Then I realized I could incorporate it all, a contemporary, rock ‘n roll beat, with a positive message.”
