Biographies of The Loveless Duo
Sing, Praise and Exhort...
The Loveless Duo are a husband and wife team that sing in over 30 senior facilities in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The couple met in 1999 and married after knowing each other for only four months! Not realizing they both were artists and singers, the two married and the rest is history. Born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, the Duo relocated to Fort Worth, TX in 2008 to plant a church. Although the church pastor relocated to Oklahoma, the Duo continue to host bi-monthly Group Bible Study meetings.
The Duo sings songs ranging from the 1930's through 1960 and adds songs from Motown and Gospel. Known for their keen sense of humor and James for his dance moves, the couple are a regular at many of the facilities, some hiring them monthly throughout the year.
