Ms. Honey's love of music and her service as the choir director in the childhood church; where she she still leads the choir to this day; planted the seed of musical passion that the world is blessed by today from Mary Mary. In 2010 Ms. Honey led her church choir to the finals of the National Verizon How Sweet The Sound Competition.
