Deborah Avans Peek
Singer/Songwriter Deborah Avans was born in a small town on the outskirts of Chicago, and was adopted at the age of two by a couple from Alabama. When Deborah was four the family moved to Alabama and that's where she was raised.
When Deborah was old enough to walk, she would sing songs from TV commercials. She would sing "I say goodbye, you say hello" by the Beatles, and has been singing ever since.
Growing up singing in church, Deborah gives credit for her ability to sing and natural talent to God. She sang in church and school functions and was a member of a gospel quartet at the early age of 15.
In 2000, Deborah recorded a CD titled "Don't Come Cryin To Me" and move to Nashville. She filmed several music videos in which one of her videos was filmed on Chattanooga's Southern Belle river boat. There were some major labels that were interested in offering a recording contract. She became a regular backstage at the Opry and met a lot of friends in the business. Deborah also recorded vocal demos and background vocals for artist in Nashville. She performed at the Stardust Theater in Nashville as Faith Hill and Tammy Wynette tributes. That is where she met the members of the band she toured with for six years throughout Tennessee.
In 2008 Deborah recorded a gospel cd titled “Living In The Rain”, which received much radio play. She had to put travel and ministry on hold when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013. After undergoing a double mastectomy, 28 radiation treatments,12 rounds of chemotherapy, in which she lost all of her hair, she managed to keep working a full time job and is now cancer free. Deborah thanks God everyday for watching over and healing her. She has made a full recovery and is ready to get back to doing what she loves to do, which is sharing God's word through songs. "I just want to be out there with the people who have hurt and struggles; to encourage them and let them know "you" CAN be strong." God will never leave you, even when you think he's so far away, he's not, and he will always rescue you when HE decides it's time", she states. " Going through divorce, abuse, abandonment, homeless and brokenness in the past and then cancer, "I know what it's like to struggle, BUT GOD is Good"!
