Her Name Is Sparky D!

Testimony of a Redeemed Life

She was born Doreen Broadnax in Brooklyn, New York to a black father and a white mother. Sparky says, "Being an inter-racial child in the projects was rough, we had it hard." She goes on to say, "When I had to be Black, I was Black. When I had to be White, I was White... When I had to be Puerto Rican, I was Puerto Rican." As one of the first recorded solo female rappers, Doreen recorded six 12 inch singles and one album as Sparky D.

Sparky first recorded with Brooklyn crew "The Playgirls" who were on Sutra records. Her first solo effort was "Sparky's Turn (Roxanne You're Through)" on NIA records produced by Spyder D. It was one of the first answer records in the infamous "Roxanne" wars of the mid-80's, and the first one to be aimed squarely at Roxanne Shante. Her biggest song entitled "Throw Down" would sell 350,000 units - she was the toast of the rap world. Sparky released an album on B-Boy in 1988 called "Sparky D's World" in the UK but titled "This Is Sparky D's World" in the US. And in 1991 she made an appearance alongside Grandmaster Caz on Malcolm McClaren on The World Famous Supreme Team Show's album "Opera House."

In 2000, back and clean, she gave her life to Christ. Sparky worked in and out of the church, helping others in the music business.

In 2004, Sparky began performing and working on albums with Hip Hop Gospel old school rappers like MC Shy D, Spyder D, Roxanne Shante', Cool D.J. Red Alert and K Wiz.

In February 2008 Sparky appeared on "Stir it Up," a TV show hosted by Vonnie Battles shown on JCTV, the worlds largest religious television network. Sparky is currently working on her soon to be released album and writing a book called "From the Pit to the Palace."
