On Saturday, May 6, Ms. DaMarka Wheeler will release her very first solo single,  Oh Taste and See during a formal release service at the Friendship Baptist Church 402 Clinton Street at 5 p.m.. This will be a free event for general admission and $10 for VIP seating; VIP ticket holders will get a signed copy of Ms. Wheeler’s single and an invitation to a reception following the service.

Ms. Wheeler was inspired to write this song out of her many obstacles and hindrances; It is a testament toGod’s awesome power. Oh Taste and See was written by DaMarka and produced by Jonathan Boyd.

Born and raised in Buffalo, DaMarka grew up singing in the church. By the time she was twelve years old she was singing in a group called “The Spirituallets” formed by her uncle, Pastor Sammy White. In high school, she was known as the best singer. DaMarka has had a true underlying passion for ministry and music. After high school, she joined a choir called AVIP under the direction of Pastor Troy Brown. DaMarka became the praise and worship leader and an ordained evangelist at Greater Anointing Tabernacle. She later relocated to Atlanta, Georgia and became a part of David Walker and High Praise. DaMarka has opened up for many great gospel artists such as Pastor Kim Burrell, The Clark Sisters and sang background for Bishop Paul Morton, to name a few. 

Today, DaMarka, themother of DeMarkus,  resides in Buffalo andattends the Antioch Holiness Church under the leadership and tutelage of Bishop James H. and Lady Kathy Bowman, where she is still a faithful praise and worship leader.
