New York, NY -- Platinum recording artist Wanita "D. Woods" Woodgett of Danity Kane taps into her natural on-camera skills and her sassy 'round the way girl persona to introduce FLOW TV’s programming as the celebrity host of "New On Flow" available 24/7 at www.flow.tv and through Time Warner Cable's Video-On-Demand throughout the month of July. FLOW TV is the first on-demand television channel dedicated solely to the hip hop lifestyle with an authentic look into the music, culture and trends of the hip hop nation. FLOW TV recently launched in May 2007 to over 70 million viewers simultaneously via broadband, mobile and cable television.
No stranger to the camera, D. Woods was one of MTV's reality stars for two seasons on Diddy's "Making the Band 3" and went on to achieve chart-topping status with pop/R&B girl group Danity Kane’s #1 album debut on the Billboard charts and their hit single “Showstopper.” She also made a cameo in this year’s box office smash “Stomp the Yard” starring Columbus Short, Meagan Good and recording artists Ne-Yo & Chris Brown and played the love interest in the video for Lloyd’s hit single featuring Lil Wayne “You.” Most recently she stepped off a virtually sold-out 40 city tour with Danity Kane opening for Christina Aguilera and The Pussycat Dolls and into the pages of spreads for KING Magazine (May 2007) and SMOOTH Magazine (June 2007) allowing her fans to get a little more up close and personal with D.Woods.
D.Woods also just celebrated a birthday on 07-07-07 or “Triple-O-Seven” with an exclusive James Bond-themed extravaganza in her hometown of Atlanta . She made an entrance with an entourage of “secret service” escorts and hit the red carpet in an outfit designed by Michael Knight of Project Runway. Guests received a “theatrical invitation” to the soiree in the form of an eight-minute urban “Casino Royale” style trailer starring D.Woods as the consummate undercover agent, Affion Crockett (Wild N Out, Short Circuitz) and writer/director/actor Maurice “Mo” Owens as Mr. 007.
Prior to Making the Band and Danity Kane, D. Woods trained extensively in voice, acting, and all genres of dance including modern, ballet, hip-hop, and West African and performed in off-Broadway stage and theater productions, commercials, and on tour as a dancer with major recording artists. Also a talented songwriter, D. Woods secured placements on albums for pop/R&B and hip-hop artists including Kelis (Jive) and B5 (Bad Boy). D. Woods grew up in Springfield, MA where she discovered her love for performing at an early age and went on to attend Tri-Cities Magnet High School for Visual and Performing Arts in Atlanta, GA and the prestigious NYU Tisch School of the Arts in New York City.
Most recently, D. Woods has been working on a new mixtape called “The Girls Club Vol. 1” from her Atlanta-based songwriting team “The Girls Club” made up of D. Woods, her sister Shanell aka SNL and Mika Means that will include features from Mya (Universal), Kelis (Jive), Chrisette Michelle (Def Jam), Dawn & Aubrey of Danity Kane (Bad Boy/WEA), and Too Short (Jive) to be released this summer. Also looking for the best way to stay in shape on the go, D. Woods and her Atlanta-based trainer Torwa Joe have developed their own hot new workout series, the first segment of which is called “Crunk Abs.”
