Inspired by early R&B legends of the '70s and '80s, Madiona  grew up practicing her vocals and developing her style to the records of Diana Ross, Melba Moore, Whitney Houston, and Jody Watley.  She cultivated her silky-smooth vocals in the privacy of her childhood bedroom and led songs in her church choir in her hometown of Winston Salem.

Madiona is also an author of Christian Fiction books and publishes under the pseudonym, Ruth C. Durant. Look for her first collection of short stories on

A Favorite Song...

Singer/Song Writer


Open your mind and imagine a place
where living and loving are all that it takes;
where dreams do come true and happiness lasts;
where laughter is bliss and a first kiss surpassed
by only the phenomenal feeling you get
when you know you've lived every minute.
