As a composer, her works have been performed across the globe including such venues as the Kennedy Center, Air Canada Arena and the Disney Hall in Los Angeles. Although Dr. Dee is most known for her choral anthems, she has gained great recognition for her tremendous stylistic diversity, ranging from atonal classical pieces to contemporary gospel. An ingenious arranger, her creativity may be heard in everything from arrangements of African and Korean folk songs to her much-celebrated arrangement of Israel's National Anthem, the Hatikvah.
A classically trained pianist, Dr. Dee flowers her strong gospel chops with a powerful virtuosity and the colors of jazz. Vocally, she weaves her operatic high soprano skills with a soulful gospel warmth that both inspires and impresses listeners as she spans her three-and-a-half octave range.
Dr. Dee is a sought-after speaker who combines heartfelt honesty with personal testimony and humor demonstrating powerful faith through eloquence and fervor. Whether speaking to thousands or small groups, her keen sense of discernment allows her to connect instantly to diverse audiences. She is founder and CEO of LCW Publishing Corporation through which she publishes numerous compositions and has self-produced two recordings, In Stillness and Dr. Dee Live in DC: My Heart Says Yes. Dee is currently completing her first book, "Journey to the Altar," her story of marrying late in life and the lessons of waiting. Diane is married to the love of her life, former recording and touring R&B percussionist, Joe Louis Clayton of Los Angeles.
