The 4th of 11 children, many of Edna’s memories are of the family sitting on the front porch in Wynne, Arkansas, singing in acapella harmony as the neighbors listened and sometimes joined in. She was lead choir Director and Praise Team Director at Living Hope Baptist church for over 20 years. Miss Edna – a Gospel artist who has released 2 solo CDs – Edna has also performed with John Tesh, Phillip Bailey, King Baptist Mass Choir, and Landmark Ministries, and is uninhibited in giving unfettered praise, having grown up in a southern church and large family of singers.
She has also sung with More Than Music on both US Coasts and in Dubai and Israel. Edna loves southern food, singing in Spanish, and Country / Western music (Southern roots) – and her wonderful, kindhearted husband of 36 years and their son, Keith. Through a mutual mentor (Joyce Marie Davis), Miss Edna began collaborating with Dave (BGS scriptwriter) in 2001, and was part of the inaugural performance of “At the Table: A Celebration of the Life and Legacy of MLK, Jr” in 2003… which ultimately became the inspiration for Blue Gospel Scripts.
