Welcome Message

Welcome to the home of Doreen Vail: National and International Songstress, Inspirational Speaker, and Author. During your first introduction to Doreen, you will notice her signature smile! It was once something that she was very ashamed of but has now embraced it as one of her greatest assets. Doreen has been nicknamed "The Songbird" by former hospital patients and staff. When she opens her mouth to sing or to speak, you just feel it!

Doreen is a Stellar Award nominee and co-producer of the season 4 theme song for the critically-acclaimed HBO series The Wire. She has appeared on TBN and shared the stage with some of the biggest names in gospel music. Doreen is also a performer and speaker with the prestigious Moneywise Empowerment Tour, which travels the country restoring hope to what appears to be hopeless financial situations.

What people are saying about Doreen

"Doreen Vail has been blessed with a voice and talent that only a few in her craft possess. But even this priceless gift trails her oratory and presentation skills. I could listen to her music and rich wisdom for hours. If ever given the opportunity to experience her first-hand, do not miss it!"
"When I first heard Doreen sing, I was sitting back stage in my dressing room waiting for my time to go on. And then I heard this "sound!" Doreen has this rare gift of great artistry and great heart that lifts your spirit to touch the heart of God. That was a few years ago and she's only gotten better. I'm a friend and a fan!"
Nina K. Noble - Film & TV Executive Producer, including HBO's "The Wire" and "Treme"
"It was truly a transformative experience working with Doreen on HBO's "The Wire" Season 4 theme song. Her immense skills as a musician combined with her loving heart and joyful spirit made this project a true pleasure from beginning to end. Doreen has a unique ability to connect with all kinds of people and to be open to all kinds of ideas while remaining true to her own. I feel fortunate that she has remained in my life and I look forward to our next collaboration!"
"I had the opportunity to hear Doreen Vail as our opening act on a national tour and she had the same response from the audience in each and every city ... they were WOWed! I have never seen a singer get as many standing ovations as I witnessed with Doreen Vail. This lady is a one-of-a-kind, real-deal, show stopper!"
"Doreen Vail is anointed from her head to her vocal chords to her toes. Soulful,Spirit-filled,joy-filled. Sometimes I cry, sometimes I smile, but I always go to that "other place" when I hear her sing. My hand goes up in the air; I bow, I stand, I hold myself because I feel like running. She can do it all. No venue intimidates her. And I LOVE her. The Doreen you meet in person matches her warm spirit that drips from her lips. She can SING!!!"
