Danielle Sunny Bryant is a singer, songwriter, preacher, and college graduate. A native of Cumberland County, New Jersey, she attended Vineland Public Schools graduating at the top twenty percentile of her senior class. She is the worship leader at her local church, Christlike Ministries of Deliverance, Incorporated. Danielle’s musical background not only includes gospel, but such genres as jazz, classical, and opera. Danielle grew up singing in her local church choir and on praise and worship teams. She then moved on to singing in various school choruses like the Vineland High School Select Choir and Madrigal Singers. During her four years at Vineland Senior High, Danielle auditioned for the VHS Select Choir, and was selected to sing on the prestigious, award-winning chorus. Later that same year, Danielle also auditioned for the Madrigal group and was also selected. Her active participation in these choral groups allowed her to travel and sing at various country club events, school competitions, and holiday concerts. It is Danielle’s powerful, “churchy” tone that brings the church to listeners every time they hear her sing- almost placing them in the middle of a Sunday worship service.
After her graduation, Danielle went on to pursue higher education, specializing in Criminal Justice Studies, while working in the music ministry at her local church with choir and praise and worship teams.

Returning to her love for choir music, Danielle joined the Philadelphia chapter of the Gospel Music Workshop of America (GMWA), in September 2017. She later joined the Contemporary Adult Division (CAD). As a CAD and GMWA member, Danielle performed with the chapter in the 2017 6 ABC Thanksgiving Day Parade, the 2018 Philadelphia Inaugural Ceremony, as well as the 2018 Festival of Praise tour (Philadelphia) as a background vocalist.
Danielle’s passion for singing comes from the inspiration and training of her mother, Apostle Darlene Bryant. To this day, Danielle is grateful for the afternoons her mother spent with her, teaching her vocal ranges, gospel hymns, and also instilling the word of God in her. In addition, Danielle thanks her youngest brother, Pastor Jerald Bryant, for his musical compositions and arrangements. Together, the two are a dynamic force, whether it’s through music or preaching God’s word.
