With an unusual gift of calming, yet captivating song, Ms. Dannetta Lynn Rivers is an anointed force to be reckoned with for the Kingdom of God.
Early in life, Dannetta's parents fostered her gift of song and taught her the importance of applying God’s word to every aspect of life. At the age of four Dannetta was very intrigued by her mother’s tape and record collection and a little red tape recorder that allowed her to record herself singing. This was just a foreshadow of the great things God has in store for this focused, young vocalist.
After graduating from South Carolina State University in 2002 with a degree in Elementary Education, Dannetta joined the ranks of educators in Richland School District One, Columbia, SC as a middle school teacher. While teaching, Dannetta became very active in the community of Gospel singers in the city. Dannetta worked along side Min. Darryl Izzard, director of Benedict college gospel choir; and the Christ N U Movement, as both Director and Curriculum coordinator of The Darryl Izzard Music and Worship Arts Academy. Dannetta Lynn has been privileged to sing background and lead vocals on several projects with premier artists such as: Sir-Viva, AC Da Preacha, Regina Skeeters, Miles Mealing and the Y&S Chorale, and Min Darryl Izzard’s soon to be released worship project.
While teaching at Southeast Middle School, Dannetta served as Gospel Choir Director, Step Team Coach, and Student Council Advisor.
Through each experience three things continue to grow stronger in her heart; her love for God, her desire to see others fulfill their dreams, and her passion for singing.
We celebrate the release of Ms. Dannetta Lynn’s debut project; PRELUDE: An Introductory Action! This project is just a taste of Dannetta’s very unique style that lends itself to jazz, neo-soul, and gospel. But one thing is undisputable; her songs are full of God’s Word, and fresh music that will keep you anticipating more.
. Her voice can be described as smooth yet piercing. Fresh, yet seasoned. Familiar, yet unusual. The amazing anointing and depth of her ministry leaves a unique mark on everything she touches. Dannetta's greatest desire in her ministry is that God be pleased and through her song people experience God’s presence, and as a result long to know him more. Her words of motivation are," Seek to know God more than anything. Knowing God gives you a true picture of who you really are. When you know who you are in Christ, you can accomplish every God given dream and live a fulfilling life of purpose!
