Bio

Demetria McKinney is a triple threat in the truest sense of the term. She is an award-winning actress who has played diverse roles on the big and small screens as well as the stage. She is a gifted singer with a rich voice requiring zerostudio enhancements. In addition she is a skillful songwriter who thoughtfully expresses emotions in a way that instantly connects with listeners.

Widely known for her role as "Janine Payne" on the hit TBS sitcom "Tyler Perry's House of Payne," which has taped over 254 episodes and received five NAACP Image Awards for Best Sitcom, Demetria can currently be seen on BET's The Quad, and on Bounce TV's Saints & Sinners as a primary character, Tamara. Demetria was one of the newest cast member on Bravo TV's TheReal Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 and had cameo appearances on Season 8. Demetria also played the iconic Whitney Houston in the Bobbi Kristina biopic which aired on TV One on October 7th, 2017. She is also currently starring inSYFY's new series Superstition.

As a recording artist, this is where the most truthful, transparent side of me will be seen and heard," Demetria says. "People mostly know mefor the roles I have played, and they are all roles that I chose specifically for the lessons that I would learn from each character. Personally, I never wanted to show vulnerability because I thought it was a sign of weakness. I didn't want to talk aboutsituations I've endured and I would shut off opportunities that would make me connect with any past pain. I always hid behind my characters, and allowed them to overshadow Demetria. But the reason I call this LP `Officially Yours' is because the music represents the `official' Demetria McKinney."

"Music has always been a big part of my life, and helped me get through the most difficult times of my life," adds Demetria. "It feels good and it is very natural for me to express myself through music, and I hopethat fans can connect with me as someone who -through the good times and the bad times -not only survived but got over some very painful situations and still thrived."
