.DJ Di, like many others came to Orlando to become an actor & after few successes (she liked eating & wearing nice clothes) she auditioned for a side job to become a karaoke host way back when karaoke was a dirty word. When DJ Di started bringing karaoke to Orlando venues, many didn't even know what it was & those who did, didn't want it in their favorite bar! The thought of drunk people singing off-key was much too much to bear!
But DJ Di promised a little more than that. Using her theatre training & wit, she infused her shows with comedy & her own vocal prowess at impersonations(Cher, Tina, & more) & she turned her gigs into real shows, much like those variety shows she grew up watching on TV! Soon amazing singers began sharing their talents & new-to-karaoke singers were becoming transformed into amazing entertainers & no one questioned her special brand of karaoke! She has been at Big Daddy's (Orlando's #1 karaoke bar) for 16 years & even found herself on Oprah for a minute!
Today, she is an award winning KJ/DJ including being voted one of Orlando's best entertainers by Orlando Magazine & was even voted Best KJ in the country in 2012! She considers her biggest award is the love of her DJ Di-hards & she still loves what she thought was just supposed to be a side job that turned into a career!
