Tia is a Seattle native who joined the Total Experience Gospel Choir as a young girl in 1975. Through the choir she made new friends, learned about African American culture, and traveled for first time. The experience opened her eyes to the possibilities of the world and showed her true friendship within the unity of gospel music: “Throughout all the music, choreography, and performances, I learned the art of giving your best in all you do through true discipline and dedication.” Her documentary PATRINELL: THE TOTAL EXPERIENCE (2019) screened at Seattle FilmFestival.
