Yvonne V Reyes has been singing since she could talk. She wrote her first song when she was 9 and performed it at the Paramount Theater in Denver, Colorado. She then took the stage as a teenager with her Dad who played saxophone and flute in a local blues/swing band. In her early twenties, she opened up for BB King, James Brown, ZZ Top, and Bad Company (to name a few) and toured with recording artist Jonny Lang. She has written and recorded music for a Vin Deisel film, as well as done vocal demos for songwriting legend Diane Warren. She now writes and records her own music and has two albums "Higher Calling" (2010), and "Show Me Love" (2012) and three singles "Glory" (2013), "Oceans" (2016), and "Overcomer" (2017).
In 2003, V met Jonny Lang through her friend Reeve Carney who played guitar in her band at the time. Jonny and his family shared their faith with V and became her second family. V gave her life to the Lord and experienced major healing and deliverance on March 23rd, 2003 when she was filled with the baptism of the holy spirit. It was nothing short of divine for her to be discipled by her musical hero and his family and to know such loving, compassionate, anointed and extraordinary people. They made being a Christian seem like the most supernatural and exciting thing on earth which was the way God probably intended. V recalls having dreams that she would one day meet her favorite musician and those dreams ended up having prophetic meaning once they were fulfilled. God continues to fascinate V with His miracles and mercy and she lives to help others find the joy and fulfillment she has found in her purpose and relationship with God. Touring with Jonny in 2005 has been the highlight of V's musical career and has helped prepare her for all that God has for her ahead.
In 2010, V had the honor to be a part of the Journey to Experience (J2X) revival in New York. She was invited to share her testimony and perform at Madison Square Garden with her band. That night over 2,200 people were filled with the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the spiritual atmosphere in New York was forever shifted. V felt the Lord speak to her heart that night and it has marked her for life. "He told me that if I wanted to have a career as a singer that the world would have me and that He would allow it. Then He said that if I truly wanted Him and His Kingdom that it would be a humble road. He said there are no red carpets in my Kingdom. He said that I could go either way, the choice was mine. But if you choose me, you will see more of my glory than you could ever imagine." This was an offer that V's heart could not refuse and it has been her greatest desire ever since to see His glory and power poured out on our world like never before. She has participated in several other revival concerts since then and has ministered nationally and internationally.
V is currently working on her 3rd album and lives in Pasadena, CA with her son Josiah.
