Danielle Williams-McCord is a minister, author, empowerment speaker and playwright committed to spreading the word of God and empowering individuals to live in their truth and walk in their purpose.

However, what is sure to capture people’s attention is the fact that before turning her life around, she was a stripper, prostitute and a popular porn star in Los Angeles.

Her story is a powerful journey from darkness to redemption, and is detailed in her captivating book turned stage play entitled, “From Porn to the Pulpit.”

Last weekend, Williams-McCord premiered her production at the Earl Smith Strand Theatre outside of Atlanta, playing to two consecutive sold out crowds and drawing every action and emotion from laughter and utter shock, to tear-jerking sadness. Both nights ended with a thunderous applause.

Among the talented cast members was ‘Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’ star and popular radio personality, Yung Joc. ‘From Porn to the Pulpit’ is a theatrical masterpiece….and it is all true. While it certainly has entertainment value, the mission is clear – to save souls.

“I want people to understand that while this is a major production, this is still ministry,” Williams-McCord said. “This is my life. I don’t want people to just come and say ‘wow, that play is good.’ I am trying to reach souls in a more modern way outside of the church.”

 

Williams McCord had a childhood that was riddled with alcohol and drug abuse, exposure to sex and pornography, rape and brushes with death among many other things no child should experience.

“At the age of eight I was molested. My mentally ill father tried to kill me when I was 10,” she said. ”I was sexually active at 13 and became pregnant by a 27 year-old pimp. At 14 I was stripping, I was a prostitute at 15, and I was doing porn going into my 18th birthday.”

Young Joc was overwhelmed by this testimony. He stated that many people approach him with initiatives with a supposed good cause, he rejects the offers because they are not the right fit. After being contacted by Williams-McCord however, he knew right away he wanted to be involved.

“It wasn’t just about a production. Mrs. Danielle came to me very humble and I said let me hear the story,” he said. “When she told me her story, I was sold before she even asked me to really be a part of it.

She could have asked me to do anything and I probably would have said cool, knowing this is a changed woman and that she is willing to be transparent enough to share her story with the world. I am pretty sure there are some young ladies out there who will definitely take heed to her real life story. This ain’t about a movie, this is a true story.  When she gave me her book, I really knew she was for real.”    

With the success and heavy demand for the play, ‘From Porn to the Pulpit’ will be touring across the nation, with a different celebrity featured in each city.  The next stop is in Baton Rouge in April.  

Williams-McCord continues to share her testimony worldwide to let people know that although they may sometimes go astray and fail miserably, that they can be restored and find who they are destined to be.

She has already appeared major platforms on CBN’s The 700 Club, The Word Network, the Maury Show and many other national platforms. She is frequently requested for speaking engagements. Williams-McCord is planning other major projects and plans to open safe houses for men and women who have endured extreme trauma.

“I want people to know that if God saved a wretch like me, that he can save anyone,” she said. “Regardless of what you go through, you can make it through. We all have a purpose and I want to help people to find theirs.”
