THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE FOR DAISY JADE
Daisy is a professional Actress, Model, Host, Dancer, and Independent Filmmaker with over 17 years experience. It was her role as Sarah Brown in her high school's production of the musical "Guys and Dolls" that inspired her to make a career out of her passion for acting, and she went on to receive her degree in Film Studies & Theater Arts with a full scholarship to the University of Pittsburgh. Not only is she talented on stage and in front of the camera, but her exceptional creative and organizational skills has allowed her to work in various behind-the-scenes roles such as Shoot Production Coordinator, Talent Casting Assistant, Stage Manager, Director, Producer, Stand-in, and also as a past Personal Assistant to Tyler Perry. She currently lives on the East Coast, but also travels nationally for various projects. Daisy's appealing charisma, professional work ethic, and vibrant personality have all attributed to her on-going success.
Daisy is now the newest member of Pittsburgh's CW Green Team!

In addition, she had the opportunity to use her dancing skills once again in the hip hop dance finale (a dance mix of Mary Mary’s “Shackles” and “Heaven”).

This is an article from the Hampton Roads Church website regarding the event:
This year’s Women's Day entitled "The Gift," was a gift that will surely keep on giving. Over 800 women gathered at Portsmouth Renaissance Hotel to hear Women's Ministry Leader, Jennifer Lambert, preach powerfully about the gift of God. Based on John 4:10, "If you knew the gift of God...," she called the women to open the Gift of God, and live a life of radical gratitude striving to appreciate the greatest gift God has ever given: His Son. There was an overwhelming sense of excitement throughout the afternoon as the fellowship was encouraging, amazing door prizes were given, and musical performances that were simply spectacular.
Please visit the Hampton Roads Church's website for more information regarding the Women's Day Follow-Up Series, as well as information on worship services and other events.
