For more than thirty years, Cora’s career has been music ministry. She has performed with many great gospel musicians, and toured with several choirs as vocalist and music director.

She’s made numerous public appearances: Sankofa Maafa, Port Townsend Blues and Jazz Festivals, televised Black History Month programs, Children’s Defense Fund National Conference, Black Dollar Days banquet with Dick Gregory, singing of the national anthem for the Seattle Supersonics ball game, radio and television appearances and countless other special occasions. She ministers at schools, juvenile detention centers, prisons, homeless shelters, recovery centers and churches across the Northwest.

En Masse, featuring Temperance and some of the finest musicians in the Seattle area was the first recording produced by Sonojack Records. The release of En Masse (MNOP Records), a live recording with Shades of Praise Gospel Choir, soon followed. Concert of the Cross, a gospel passion play portraying Jesus’ birth, life and death through drama and song was also recorded live. God Is So Good to Me, a gospel-jazz recording, was the late Edmonia Jarrett's final project. Sonojack's most recent release, recorded with S.T.A.N.D. Productions, is entitled The Rock.

Cora’s vision for a Christ centered theatre company was realized with the formation of S.T.A.N.D. Productions.This large community troupe united individuals from diverse generational, denominational, economic and racial backgrounds and was comprised of singers, actors, dancers and instrumentalists from the greater Puget Sound region. S.T.A.N.D. ministered for seven years, ending in 2005.

Later in 2005, JudahSong was born. JudahSong is a community based choir which ministers at drug and alcohol recovery centers, prisons, fellow churches, and in concert several times aeach year.

In 2002, Cora and her late husband Ed planted a church in central Seattle. Cora continues to pastor at Righteous Harvest Christian Fellowship.
