Regina started out singing at home listening to artists like: Aretha
Franklin, Natalie Cole, Mahalia Jackson, Mighty Clouds of Joy,
Isaac Hayes, Barbara Striesand, Bobby Bland, B.B. King, Marvin
Gay, The Emotions and Roberta Flack. Although she was a rather
shy little girl, her dream was to sing in front of a big audience of
different cultures and nationalities. It wasn't until she was a teenager
when she got enough courage to sing in a choir and a quartet along
with her sister at the Berean SDA Church. From there she worked
hard at getting involved with several choirs and singing groups - Just
to name a few: Royal Kindred, Covenant, Heaven's Own, EAY
Federation Choir, Berean Young Adult and Senior Choir, St. Louis
EAY Mass Choir, Berean Women's Chorale, New Life SDA
Choir (Huntsville, AL), duets and trios.
With a singing range of Tenor through Soprano, Regina hopes to
inspire every audience she sings before to follow Christ. She has
shared that message on TV (Channel 24) Larry Rice Show/
Telethon and radio (WGNU) on the Bible Answer Crusade
Program in the St. Louis area.
In 1997, Regina entered a competition through Don Reed
Productions in Nashville, TN with the group called Royal Kindred.
After singing on one of the Grand Ole Opry stages, she found out a
couple of months later that the group had won second place. This
led to a 2-song demo in a professional Nashville studio and inspired
her to move forward in her music ministry.
After competing in the semi-finals in Branson, MO and the finals in
Nashville, TN as a solo artist, in 2004, she learned that she had
won first place in the Fowler All Night Sings Competition singing
one of her original songs "It's On Its Way." The CD entitled
"It's Gonna Be Alright" that is offered through this website is a
result of part of the 1st place prize package.
Her current dream is to sing internationally, write uplifting songs and
to inspire the world to get to know the Lord before He comes back
for his people. It is her desire to see many souls saved and if she
can be used as an instrument for that purpose her life is well-lived.
Regina Whitten is a native St. Louisan that started singing at the
age of 10. Her dream to sing to the world has been an uphill one,
but nevertheless, God has opened many doors along the way.
