We all remember the climactic moments from Making the Band and despite the drama that spread within Danity Kane, we can’t help but miss seeing them on TV. There’s no denying that each member brought something special to the table and stood out in their own right. Do you ever wonder where they are or what they’re up to? Well, I decided to find out for myself where they’re at…starting with a fan favorite, D. Woods; the booty, the beauty and the voice! You’ll be happy to know that, not only is she still singing, but she has a new video and continues to push her way through the industry.
Born Wanita “D. Woods” Woodgett, she has always been a triple threat: singer, dancer and actress. Hailing from California and Massachusetts, Woods relocated to Atlanta where she began attending performing arts school, Tri-Cities High School. She would go on to continue building her technique at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and perfecting her acting abilities at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. If you thought that Danity Kane was her first run in the spotlight, you thought wrong. D. Woods has performed as a background dancer for big names such as, Snoop Dogg, LeToya Luckett, Bow Wow and more. After surviving the cut of Diddy’s Making the Band 3, the world got a glimpse of this special package on a much larger scale. The dynamic female group toured with powerhouse, Christina Aguilera and had two top selling albums (Danity Kane and Welcome to the Dollhouse) . Despite the abrupt ending of an amazing group, D. Woods remains strong-rooted in her goals. Read on to see what she has to say about life after the drama:
How has life, post reality T.V., been for you?
What latest project(s) are you currently working on? Any exciting collaborations?
I have my label WOODGRANE ENTERTAINMENT and the first release, THE GRAY AREA EP which is on iTunes and other online retailers NOW. Go get It!
What motivates you to continue on your journey through this industry?
What motivates me is the little girl who dreamed of big things and stages and creativity that was/is, me. I can’t let her down.
What do you think is your God-given purpose in life?
Everyday I ask myself that and truthfully I believe that is the work of each person to find and redefine as they go through this world. I get a feeling of confirmation when Im doing something for GOD’s purpose that is undeniable so I keep search for that feeling.
What advice can you offer others, especially females, trying to make it in this industry?
Learn your craft and the business of your craft.
What is one funny/quirky thing about you that fans may not already know?
I’m a mermaid when I get in the water. I can stay on the beach in the water or the pool all day.
How can we show support, i.e. where can we buy your music, get the latest info on upcoming projects, etc.?
You can find THE GRAY AREA on iTunes or go to www.missdwoods.com for all things D.Woods.
*I asked D. Woods a couple of questions regarding Danity Kane and this is what her publicist had to say:
Ms. Woods prefers not to answer questions in reference to her former label or group.
It’s nice to see her moving in a positive direction and not diving into the D.K. past. The Dreamworld wishes her nothing but the best and if you want to show your support, make sure to visit iTunes and purchase The Gray Area! Before you leave, check out her latest video, Foolish Dreamer:
