Welcome to DAISY JADE's site!
"Arresting performance by an actor is not a matter of style or rehearsal, but of self-knowledge and an inescapable desire for complete personal exposure. That compulsion for public emotional nakedness drives the actor to ask not "who must I become to create the character?," but to ask "who does the character become because I play it?"

Women's Day "The Gift"
Women's Day - a gift that will keep on giving!
Daisy was excited to be able to use her talents for God during this year’s Women’s Day. She produced and narrated the opening video, with the editing help of LV Harrell of LaMarv Productions. 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”). She also shot footage of the event, and again using the help of LV Harrell, created an event highlight reel for the church’s website. All three videos are available here on her website for viewing.

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.
