Duranice Pace is a true overcomer. She was abused as a child and given rat poison that damaged her voice.
Yet, after enduring such awful things at the hands of humans, Duranice focuses instead on the miraculous blessings she’s received from her Heavenly Father.
Interview With Gospel Singer Turns Emotional
Things got emotional right away as Duranice shared her real-life inspirational story of how God healed her vocal cords with TV host Steve Harvey.
“I believe the Lord gave me a touch when they fed me rat poison in Rochester, New York, and they had to cut out half of my vocal cords,” she explained. “And they said I would never talk again, but the man upstairs said, ‘You gonna sing again’.”
And that wasn’t the gospel singer’s only brush with divine healing. At one point, doctors diagnosed her with thyroid cancer, giving her just three years to live.
“March 28 made that 11 years ago,” Duranice Pace explained.
And she believes there’s a reason God spared her life.

Gospel Singer Leaves Steve Harvey In Tears
Duranice Pace’s unwavering faith and charming personality already had everyone cheering. But as the gospel singer broke into song once again during the interview, her words sang a prophecy over Steve.
“This is Steve Harvey, he’s a good man. He loves the Lord and he’ll give you a helping hand. God’s going to bless Steve Harvey,” she sang. “Keep on, keep on, you helped me to live, sir, keep on ... you special.”
Duranice’s words not only had Steve Harvey in tears, but they inspired him to open up about the final moments he shared with his late mother.
Steve’s mom was a devout Christian and she died in 1997.
“I just hope she’s seeing today, watching this moment right here,” a tearful Steve told Duranice Pace. “The only reason I straightened up and started doing right was ’cause I just wanna see her. Other than that, I’d still be going to Hell like I was.”
God can move through people. He can use them to share messages with us. And Steve Harvey told Duranice Pace that her visit to his show deeply touched him in a way he wasn’t expecting.
“You think I’m helping you, but you really helping me. I thank you because this was for me,” Steve said.
After talking with Steve, Duranice went on to deliver an incredible performance.

"God really wants to help us, but he requires that we have a relationship with him. If you’re out here trying to make it without God, you are making life harder than it needs to be. There is a higher power, there is a God. It’s time to get in touch with God."
