Success doesn’t happen by accident. Venzella Joy Williams, better known to family and friends as Joy is a testament to that.

Venzella Joy Williams: “For years and years I dreamed of playing with Beyonce. I would even go as far as in my practice time to study her records so when the time came I would be prepared.

She also encouraged me to pursue my education; I graduated from Canisius College in 2010 with Bachelors in Criminal Justice and a Minor in Music.
