Vocal powerhouse McKinney is a triple threat in the truest sense of the term. She is an award-winning actress who has played diverse roles on the big and small screens, as well as the stage. She is a talented singer with a rich voice requiring zero studio enhancements. And to top it all off, she is a skillful songwriter who generously expresses emotions in a way that instantly connects with listeners.
McKinney is widely known for her role as Janine Payne on the hit TBS sitcom “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne,” which has taped over 254 episodes, has received five NAACP Image Awards for Best Sitcom and is now in syndication on BET. She will be reviving her role as Janine in the new Tyler Perry show, “The Paynes,” debuting on OWN TV in 2018.
McKinney can currently be seen on Bounce TV’s breakout hit “Saints & Sinners”, BET’s “The Quad”, Centric TV’s “The Ladies’ Room” and the stage play “Love Jones The Musical”. Such a busy EGL woman! She also has recurring roles on Lifetime’s “Devious Maids” and on TV One as a primary character on “The Rickey Smiley Show.”
McKinney was also a cast member on BRAVO TV’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” Season 7 and had cameo appearances on Season 8.
Even though her acting career keeps her very busy, McKinney always makes time for her first love: music. Over the past few years, this eOne Music recording artist has recorded and performed with artists such as Lyfe Jennings, Musiq Soulchild and Anthony David. McKinney has also opened for R&B mainstays such as Tyrese and Tank and has toured with the Pepsi Funkfest and R. Kelly.
All the songs on Officially Yours emanate from a place within McKinney that, up until now, she has only expressed through the characters that she’s played. The spectrum of a woman’s life lived out loud – with love, resilience and courage – is represented on Officially Yours.
“As a recording artist, this is where the most truthful, transparent side of me will be seen and heard,” McKinney says. “People mostly know me for the roles I have played, and they are all roles that I chose specifically for the lessons that I would learn from each character. Personally, I never wanted to show vulnerability because I thought it was a sign of weakness. I didn’t want to talk about situations I’ve endured and I would shut off opportunities that would make me connect with any past pain. I always hid behind my characters, and allowed them to overshadow Demetria. But the reason I call this LP Officially Yours is because the music represents the ‘official’ Demetria McKinney.”
