It’s probably no accident that Erica Diamonds hails from Florida, popularly referred to as The Sunshine State. With her larger than life personality, and million dollar smile, it’s easy to see why her friends call her ‘Sunshine’. Call it fate or guidance by God, but as a singer with roots firmly planted in sharing God’s grace through Contemporary Gospel, Erica Diamonds believes that she was called to spread God’s word through her unique Christian brand of R&B and Pop infused music.
“I want people to feel renewed and refreshed,” says Erica , lyricist, musician, and producer. “My goal through each song and performance is to bring a positive message, while keeping‘ it real. Life can be overwhelming, but anyone can escape that through music. Music is an escape for so many people, and I’d like to give them somewhere positive and real to escape to.”
Although Erica Diamonds is new to the music industry, she is certainly not a beginner in the entertainment industry. As an actress & former model, Erica has shared both the big screen and small screen with many big names, appearing on large networks such as BET, HBO, and NBC. In the summer of 2009 she, along with her band ‘High Praise’ released a praise and worship EP entitled ‘Brand New morning’. Brand New Morning enjoyed both local and national success in Christian radio. Today, Erica Diamonds as a solo artist, is destined to take the Gospel R&B industry by storm. Her cutting edge lyrics dare to challenge topics that some in the Christian community would rather avoid. “ I can’t put myself in a box. I refuse. This generation needs something real, not sugar coated or watered down. And my music is real”
I want to see lives changed,” Erica says. “ If one soul comes to Christ through my music, then I‘m doing my job”.
