Born in the Ivory Coast, Lydie Koffi Omesiete has always had a strong connection to music. She comes from a family of singers and musicians, so it was only natural that she would fall in love with music as well. She first discovered her talent for singing at the age of seven, when her father encouraged her to sing a solo at church.
Lydie received both a B.A. degree in Vocal Performance and a Master of Arts in Teaching in Music Education degree at Piedmont University. She has experience as a middle school and high school chorus and drama teacher, helping young people discover their full potential in music and the performing arts. Currently, Lydie is the choral music director at her church. She and her husband, Dr. Wilson Omesiete, have a beautiful daughter, Gabrielle.
