LIFE WAS AS NORMAL AS ANY OTHER CHILD'S LIFE FOR CHICK UNTIL FEB. 1991 WHEN MELBA PASSED AWAY. RAISED SINCE AGE 5 BY HER BROTHER, DARREN WANNAMAKER, WITH HELP FROM MANY FAMILY MEMBERS THAT STRUGGLED TO MAKE CHICK'S LIFE HAPPY AND COMPLETE. ALL THROUGH GRAMMAR SCHOOL, DEYANTA PARTICIPATED IN MUSIC CLASS, CHORUS, BASKETBALL AND SCHOOL PLAYS. AT AGE TWELVE (IN 1996), CHICK SANG HER FIRST SOLO IN CHURCH "HIS EYE IS ON THE SPARROW" WHERE SHE BROUGHT THE CONGREGATION TO THEIR FEET. AFTER PRACTICING DAY AFTER DAY AT HOME ALONE, CHICK FINALLY HAD THE CONFIDENCE TO SHARE HER GIFT WITH OTHERS. IN JUNIOR HIGH, CHICK PARTICIPATED IN CHORUS AND THE BAND WHERE SHE SANG ALTO AND PLAYED THE FLUTE. BY THE YEAR 1998, SHE HAD ALREADY WON THE LIMESTONE COLLEGE Y.O.U.(young oppurtunities unlimited)PROGRAM TALENT SHOW.

THE CROWD WENT WILD, AND CHICK ONCE AGAIN BEGAN TO REALIZE THE STRENGTH OF HER GOD GIVEN TALENT. AS A FRESHMAN AT GETTY'S D. BROOME HIGH SCHOOL, SHE SHARED A SOLO WITH A FRIEND (DEE HARDY) IN A CHORUS CLASS SCHOOL PLAY. AT THAT MOMENT CHICK BECAME POPULAR FOR HER MELODIC VOCALS. EVERYONE AT SCHOOL KNEW WHO CHICK, THE BABYDIVA WAS. THE NAME BABYDIVA WAS GIVEN TO CHICK BY HER LIFELONG FRIEND(CHERQUANA WILKINS), WHO CLASSIFIED HER AS A FEMALE MACK. CHICK, WITH THE GIFT OF GAB, COULD REEL THE YOUNG GUYS IN WITH THE YOUNG, CUTE LOOKS AND FLOSSY SWAGG. BEING THE YOUNGEST OF THE CREW, SHE SAW CHICK AS A BABY WITH A DIVA MENTALITY...THEREFORE CHERQUANA NAMED HER, THE BABYDIVA. SPENDING LONG NIGHTS OUT LATE WITH FRIENDS, CHAKALETTE RICE , BRANDY LITTLEJOHN, ASHLEY HEMPILL, AND CHERQUANA, WHO WERE YEARS OLDER THAN CHICK, SHE LEARNED THE WAYS OF HOW TO BE A WOMAN WELL BEFORE HER TIME. WITH HELP FROM THE WANNAMAKER, HEMPHILL, NORRIS, MITCHELL, JETER AND NEIGHBORHOOD FAMILIES, CHICK SOMEHOW DIDNT TURN OUT TO BE SO BAD AFTER ALL!

A YOUNG TALENTED ENGINEER BY THE NAME OF "CLAYTON" WHO RAN THE GROUP "SHAMAZLE" GAVE CHICK THE CHANCE TO RECORD HER FIRST SONG EVER. HE SAW HER TALENT AND DEDICATION TO MUSIC AND WANTED TO COLLABORATE WITH HER AS WELL AS THE REST OF THE CREW. THE WORD SPREADED QUICKLY THAT THERE WAS A YOUNG GIFTED SINGER WITH THE VOICE OF A HEAVENLY ANGEL,EVERYONE WANTED TO WORK WITH THE BABYDIVA. WITH THE GIFT TO COME THROUGH, HEAR THE MUSIC AND FLOW OFF THE TOP OF THE BRAIN, THEY FELL IN LOVE WITH HER UNLADYLIKE, BUT GROWN WOMAN STYLE.

"WITH GOD FIRST, MY FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND CHURCH FAMILY, I WILL NOT STOP, THIS IS MY DESTINY AND MY REASON TO BE", SAYS CHICK. "LEGENDS ARE BORN, NOT MADE", AS MANY WOULD SAY. THE TRUTH IS, THIS SPECIAL ARTIST HAS A MOVEMENT ALREADY IN PROCESS READY TO MAKE PROGRESS. THE YOUNG SONGBIRD IS BOUND TO MAKE MORE THAN A MARK ON MANY HEARTS AND MINDS FOR YEARS TO COME.- interviewed by life and written by the one who lived it.
