Brenda has been a featured soloist on numerous recordings including The Sacramento Mass Choir, The Chicago Mass Choir,and Wanda Nero Butler.

She has also worked with Chuck Colson’s Prison Fellowship Ministries which ministers throughout various federal and state correctional institutions.
Her first solo recording “Waiting” found favor with Traditional, Contemporary Christian and Inspirational audiences alike. She continued her ability to appeal to a broad audience with her sophomore release in 2002 “Somebody Somewhere Was Praying For Me”. The title track is based upon the scripture found in James 5:16 “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much”. It also reminds us of the many times someone else prayed us through the challenging times in life, particularly our mother. This song was also featured in the movie Jada.
