About 

Chista Deana - Running Music for the Christian Walk

Motivation

Christa Deánā (Duh-nay) is a Christian Singer/Songwriter from Philadelphia who sings with conviction and power. Her songs speak to the journey of a woman after God's own heart. Each song is deeply rooted in a personal, yet extremely vulnerable relationship with God. After experiencing bullying, depression, and thoughts of suicide, she used music as a coping mechanism. Additionally, seeing the issue through the eyes of a high school music teacher,  she is motivated to continuously write songs that encourage and give H.O.P.E. It's the beauty and emotion in her voice and the candor in her lyrics that help inspire others to go all the way, every day, with God.

Experience

Dedicating herself to music as a child, she won first place in the Young Artist Competition for the city of Allentown, PA. A gifted writer, Christa Deana performed her first original song at 11 and went on to write over 100 more. Her vocal ability also developed young, securing her lead oratorios from classics such as Handel’s Messiah, Mendelssohn’s Elijah, Vivaldi’s Gloria, and lead songs in Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance. In addition to writing and singing, she has toured with several choirs that took her to Romania, Turkey, France, Spain, England, and all over the US. During this journey she found a love for conducting and excelled as a choir director for several choirs.

Christa Deánā inherited perfect pitch, excellent natural timing, a powerful vocal instrument and a creative soul. But she’s been diligent to cultivate her gifts, obtaining her music education degree from the University of Valley Forge. Not content to simply make her own music, she pulls beautiful music out of her students and collaborators. Most recently, she is a kindred awards winner for Best Christian R&B Artist 2016.

Outreach

Currently, she is an advocate for suicide prevention by speaking in High Schools and creating uplifting content. She is also focusing on releasing a self entitled album with all new original music December 7, 2018. As she continues to tour and spread the message of the power of God, she's ecstatic of what's ahead.
