Debra McKinney Price is a Gospel Recording artist, who, since 2000 has been empowering & encouraging women through her music. She does this by sharing GOD’S word in songs at clubs, conferences, churches, concerts, radio, festivals, movies, etc. Her goal is, through the power of music, to help young women uncover their inner beauty, confidence, & strengths. According to Debra, "There's healing for depression, death, divorce, low self-esteem."

Coming out of an abusive marriage forced Debra & her children lived in a shelter for battered women. 3 weeks after the death of 1 of her twins, she filed for a divorce while battling hopelessness, depression, bitterness, anger, & fear of rejection. Debra had to learn to love herself & that there’s Hope & Healing for all broken hearts. This, in turn, taught her how much she's loved & approved by the One who created her.
