Tina Diamond

Tina Diamond started her professional career as a background singer for Ronnie Lovejoy who was signed by Avanti as a solo artist in 2000. The resulting album, "In The Heart Of The City", was a success. On it Diamond covered Lovejoy's classic "Sho' Wasn't Me" as "Positive I.D. (It Sho Was You)". The album also included duets with budding stars Reggie P. ("Love On The Line") and Rue Davis ("You're Not My Honey Poo"). A further track from the album, "Casino Woman", became her signature song. Diamond was dubbed the "casino queen" when she was advertized for live gigs.

Diamond released a comeback CD in 2011, "Real Love", featuring J.T. Watkins on the Otis Redding classic "Tramp". Diamond died in 2012 after collapsing on stage.
