Damaris' mother was an evangelist and her father was a singer. As a baby, her parents moved to Cuba to serve as missionaries and later moved to Puerto Rico a year later. Damaris' childhood years were spent living between Puerto Rico and New York.
Damaris knew she wanted to sing since she was 11 years old. As a teenager, Damaris and her sisters sang together as a trio & traveled with their mother. When she was 15 years old, Damaris was asked to sign at a recording studio and she was soon in demand by producers & advertising agencies in New York.
Damaris has sung with many well-known artists in recording sessions along with performing vocals on numerous advertising jingles and commercials. In 1982, she won the American Song Festival Talent Search and got a record deal with CBS Records.
After that, nothing much was heard from Damaris and she seemingly faded into obscurity. These days, Damaris is still active in the music scene as a gospel singer. She has released more than 15 albums in that genre. She resides in Mt. Vernon, New York with her husband and has 2 grown children.
