“Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.”
Barbara DeYounge-Ezell is the Sole Proprietor and C.E.O of BABS OF JAMFAM Entertainment.
When Barbara retired from Public Service she felt the need to give back to her community. It was because of this that she started working as a community activist in civic organizations, political clubs and wherever she was needed. Barbara is also active in The Helping Hand Ministry of her church.
She grew up in a family where Christian music was the heart and soul of their lives, but also had an appreciation for other genres of music. Her grandfather formed a family Christian quartet in the 1930s. They performed at several churches during the years that the quartet was together. At the age of 4 years old, Barbara began singing on the church choir. Then as a teenager, together with two of her sisters, they formed a singing group.
The stellar music history of Queens and the arts have always been Barbara’s passion and it is because of this, Barbara has felt a dedication towards helping others to successfully pursue their dreams in the music field.
