    Sang on Arrested Development’s ‘Tennessee’ (1992)
    Recorded the album ‘Wild Seed – Wild Flower’ (1994) and single ‘I Know’ (1995)
    Although she recorded and toured with them, she was never an official member of Arrested Development.
    She broke with Arrested Development before a concert in Atlanta after getting into an argument with Speech and Headliner (September, 1992).
    She was a one-hit wonder.
    Creative differences with Columbia Records resulted in her second album not getting released until 2007, when it was issued through i-Tunes.
    She was named after Dionne Warwick.
    She said one of her fondest memories of growing up was attending a Diana Ross concert at age eight, being lifted onto the stage by her uncle, and receiving a kiss from Ross.
    She was cast in the lead of her high school’s production of ‘Annie’ at a time when a black Little Orphan Annie was considered controversial.
    During her time away from the music biz, she raised and home schooled her daughter.
    Prince wrote the song 'Dionne' about her.
