Dana Quinn was born in Spartanburg, SC and raised in a small textile town called Woodruff, SC. Her parents were both mill workers and she is the youngest of five. Dana attributes her love for music from her father who toured with the original Swinging Medallions and other various bluegrass bands. Dana was always surrounded by music and has been singing for as long as she can remember. Dana gave her life to God when she was eighteen years old, during a challenging season in her life. "I was overwhelmed by the love of God and gave my heart to God, but I didn't give Him my life. It wasn't until I was twenty-six that I found myself as a broken single mother I realized that unless I give my life to God, I have no future...at least not a happy and fulfilled one." From that moment on, Dana began living her life the way one should operate as a Kingdom Citizen in the Kingdom of God. She married her husband in the summer of 2010 and resides in Greenville, SC. They were both very involved with their church and ministry but one day Dana confided to her husband she was tired of singing in the choir and everyone else's music. He told her to take it to God, which she did. "God laid it on my heart to fast. I had never fasted before in my life! So embarked on my first fast and on the THIRD day my husband and I were talking about who God is in the bible...how he is referred to, the titles He is given. And in the midst of the conversation I wrote my first song "Who Is This Man." From that moment, Dana and The Holy Spirit have wrote several praise and worship compositions, along with some Contemporary Christian tunes. "I would not be where I am today with my ministry and music had it not been for my husband seeing the gifts God placed in me and the potential He had for me and my life. My husband has been my motivator and believed in me, even when I no longer believed in myself. I truly believe my purpose is to bring people closer to God, to have a more intimate relationship with Him through my music. I have been through my own trials, heartbreaks, and hardships and I have learned, gained, and lost so much with my own spiritual journey that I feel even if I don't have the right words to say, just knowing someone else has gone through what you are going through and has come out a better and stronger person - can bring more hope and reassurance than any words can...sometimes seeing is believing."
