Praize Project 2007
Biography of Debra Richardson Hunter Born the oldest of six children to Deacon James and the Late Evangelist Dorothy Richardson, in Jamaica, New York, Debra was anointed to sing even in her mother's womb. She is the loving mother of five children - AJ, Dashawn, Lashunda, Denasia, and Daria. Debra attended Andrew Jackson High School in Cambria Heights, New York, majoring in music. She continued her education, attending Queensborough Community College, majoring in Business Management in Marketing. Born and raised in the Church of God in Christ, Debra received the Lord in her life at the age of 17, under the anointed teaching of Bishop Jerome and Mother Joni Norman of Full Gospel Mission Church of God in Christ, in Jamaica, New York. At the age of nine, she joined the choir, and a few years later led various songs. In her endeavor to sing praises unto the Lord, she realized that the gift God had given her was missing something. The gift was missing the Anointing. Debra asked God to anoint the gift of music, because it is the anointing that destroys the yoke. Now she sings under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Debra has sung in various groups and choirs: Eastern New York Jurisdiction State Choir, under the direction of Elder Timothy Wright, United National Auxiliaries Convention (UNAC) choir, of the Church of God in Christ, under the direction of the Late Dr. Mattie Moss Clark and Twinkie Clark, Faith Ensemble, Full Gospel Mission COGIC Youth and Young Adult Choir, Minister of Music- Beth-el Temple Ministries and Center of Hope Praise Team. In November of 1995, Debra and family were in a terrible accident while on their way to the Church of God in Christ Convocation. God spared their lives with minor injuries. About five years later, on April 20, 2000, her life was turned upside down. Her Mother and Sister were killed in an automobile accident. Debra body was numb. That day was the worst day of her life, but it was also the best day of her life. It was the day that her Worship, became for real. The Lord desired to know, in the midst of all of the hurt and pain, did Debra Love Him. Definitely not understanding how this could happen, she expressed the true love that she had for Daddy, as she affectionately calls God. The devil meant it for bad, but God meant it all for good. Never pursuing the Ministry the Lord had given her, through music, Debra had always kept singing on the back burner. In December 2006, Daddy spoke for the last time concerning her ministry, to do what He had commanded her to do. The mandate from God left Debra no choice, but to obey His voice. Evangelist Debra Hunter favorite scriptures are Psalms 27 magnifying verse 6 and Nehemiah chapter 4. Praize Project 2007 is essentially a manifestation of Debra's true praise. It is an expression of knowing without a doubt that she is Victorious, when she trust God's Way, because God has Restored Her.
