She was also a part of a community choir called The Mount Vernon Community Choir under the direction of Bishop William Darin Moore and Bishop Brian Moore. As a young girl, many people realized that Reed possessed a beautiful singing voice. Her raw talent gave her many opportunities to sing and lead the children’s and adult choirs of her church throughout her upbringing. Not only did she have a talent for singing, but she also learned to play the piano by ear.

Through the years, Reed has performed in various talent shows. Eventually, she decided to audition for an all-female group called Explicit, which consisted of 4 other talented young ladies. The girl group was under the leadership of the famous Robinson brothers Jeff and Conrad, who put the group together. Explicit was then signed by the late legendary  artist William Guest of Gladys Knight & the Pips, who owned Guest Shot Records along with his sister Elizabeth Hollis Madison.

Explicit performed all over the tri-state areas and worked with many A-list producers such as Tracmasters, Genard Parker, and MC Serch.
