Born the fifth child in a family of six, Delores Thompson always had a gift. By age three Delores was dancing, singing and acting up a storm. While attending Crocker Highland Elementary, Delores wrote a play called the "Singer". During her teen years she won roles in "Purlie Victorious", "Snowy", "The Wiz" & "The Blues & Beyond" where she portrayed legendary Jazz Greats Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith, & Esther Phillips.

In 1982, she joined television station KSBT, the Bay Area's first 24-hour African American owned music video station. Delores adapted quickly to the art of Conducting interviews and has interviewed everyone from Actor Sidney Portier to Ice Cube, Delores had the ability to make whom ever she interviewed feel right at home. After being promoted to Program Director of Soulbeats' east coast stations V-44 & V-54 Brooklyn, NY, By 1989 Delores decided to make a change. " I didn't understand what I was going through to just up and leave the Bay Area like that was puzzling for me, I would have never thought it was Gods plan for me to leave but it was"


Moving to Los Angeles in 1991, she landed a job with Inspired Artist Management. By the end of 1991, with the loss of her father, Delores began a journey that changed her life. "Although I was always in the entertainment business, I knew that it wasn't enough to keep me satisfied there was an emptiness inside me, and I was hurting for that empty space to be filled"

It was in 1992 while driving passed radio station KGFJ, Delores made the claim "I'm getting a job there and she did! Delores worked as assistant to the P.D. and an On-Air personality until 1997, by 1996 KGFJ suddenly switched formats from R&B to Gospel. "I couldn't believe it, everyone was fired except me." One afternoon Delores began to really listen to the lyrics in a song about three Hebrew boys, who were thrown into a fire and came out unharmed. "Now that blew my mind and I said to one of the listeners on the request line I gotta know more about this story". After buying her Bible and studying day and night, God ministered to her. "When I heard The Spirit of the Lord, I knew exactly who it was. God told me that he turned KGFJ radio from playing secular music to gospel music for my salvation... "My Life has never been the same since"


Delores moved to Antelope Valley, where she was content or as she say's "I just wanted to chill in the valley and wait for Jesus to come back" After hearing from the Spirit of God Delores excepted a job a KJLH radio in Los Angeles where she quickly became Southern California's number one Lady in the mid days.

In 1996 Delores & her family became members of Shining Light Worship Center, Pastor Ed & Frankie Benson. Delores successfully completed classes in Faith, Effective Living, & The Call to Joy Discipleship Class in which she currently serves as a team leader, she also taught a class for singles that was such a blessing even married couples started coming. One later God allowed Delores to give birth to the Sista Girl Network, which started during her radio show on 102.3 KJLH fm. owned by Stevie Wonder.

"I never would have dreamed that God would use me at a secular radio station to do His will, but than again Jesus came to seek and to save that which was lost, So I guess a ministry at a secular radio station is not so strange especially when the owner Stevie Wonder is a God fearing bible believing Christian, in fact it's just like God to use KJLH, Amen"
