Sista' Joy

Singer-Songwriter, Minister-Evangelist, and Storyteller in Chicago, IL

Hello there! I’m Sista' Joy, (Rev. D. M. Foster) a Singer/Songwriter, Minister/Evangelist, and Storyteller.

I love to write and sing songs with my guitar and keyboard about the "wonder-working" power of God. What a joy it is for me to preach the good news and foster sing-a-longs with churches and other groups to sing old-time hymns, spirituals, and Gospel Music as a part of Revival!

I, also, play hymns like "His Eye Is On The Sparrow," and "Steal Away" on my Native American Flute and tell stories that bespeak of Divine Intervention and God's Saving Grace.

I have been a Street Evangelist for more than 30 years and, also, preached and performed professionally in such venues as the Smithsonian Institute, Museum of Science & Industry, Old Town School of Folk Music, Int'l Festival of Life, Chicago Black Storytellers, Salvation Army, Pacific Garden Mission, CAN Television, Breakthrough Ministries, Churches, Organizations, and Private Events.

I love uplifting others by spreading the word of God through music, scripture, poetry, and stories!
