Deanna started singing at the young age of 5 years old,
traveling on a bus with her family singing gospel music for her Father's ministry. She started out playing the tambourine and singing. She then moved up to the drums and singing when her older sister married, leaving an empty drum seat.
Her travels on the bus across the United States and Old Mexico brought many opportunities such as a contract offer to perform country music in an opening act for Conway Twitty and others. Deanna has performed in Branson along side the world famous Platter's female vocalist Dee Dee Hamilton, Gene Bradley and his son David Bradley of Sons Of The Pioneers, Susie Luchsinger and others. She performed at the Sugar Tree Theater in Branson, Missouri on a weekly basis.
Deanna ran for political office and performed while doing so at many festivals and church events. After a long road of heartache, Deanna married her childhood sweetheart in 2012 where together they now perform in UNBROKEN around the Dallas, Texas area. The name UNBROKEN, to us, represents going through life's trials and tribulations and coming out on top.
Deanna received a few awards along the way such as : DFW Gospel Association Female Drummer Award, DFW Gospel Association Female Vocalist Award, and the Marionville, Missouri Idol Award.
She enjoys bringing happiness to people through her singing with a country flair and a touch of blues. She gives God all the credit and enjoys life with her husband and children.

Bob Wills New San Antonio Rose Lyrics
Deep within my heart lies a melody
A song of old San Antone
Where in dreams I live with a memory
Beneath the stars all alone
It was there I found beside the Alamo
Enchantment strange as the blue, up above
A moonlit path that only she would know
Still hears my broken song of love
Moon in all your splendor knows only my heart
Call back my Rose, Rose of San Antone
Lips so sweet and tender like petals fallin' apart
Speak once again of my love, my own
Broken song, empty words I know
Still live in my heart all alone
For that moonlit pass by the Alamo
And Rose, my Rose of San Antone
