Gazzie and Deven White: YOUniquely musical


July 10, 2018

If you’ve been around Statesboro with your ears open for very long, chances are you’ve heard the name Gazzie Fulcher. If you missed it, maybe you’ve heard about her since she married her high school sweetheart, Deven, and became Mrs. Gazzie White. These two powerhouses in R&B and gospel have been making waves on their own and as a trio with their best friend Matt Frison as Musical Minds. Along with Matthew Brewton and Roger Davis, this group is featured annually at the Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair as well as many other venues.

My first introduction to Gazzie was at Statesboro High School. My good friend Lisa Muldrew was the choral director, and I got to sit in on a project she was involved with at WIllow Hill School. In addition to this being my first exposure to the force that is Mical Whitaker, I met a young high school senior who blew my mind when she started belting like nothing I’d ever heard before. It wasn’t too much later that curious circumstances gave me the tremendous honor of sharing the stage with some of Statesboro’s most brilliant vocalists and performers in the Averitt Center for the Arts’ production of “Dreamgirls.” No one I know personally could have taken on the role of Effie White and nailed it with such ease. Her powerhouse vocals combined with her energy and passion for the role made her the obvious and perfect choice. The only word that can adequately describe her voice is “anointed.”

I’ve followed Gazzie’s career and life pretty closely, calling her friend since that show. As a vocalist, I have a tremendous amount of respect for her skill and talent. As a friend, I have gotten to observe the development of Gazzie and Deven as not just a beautiful couple, but a power couple and a true team. From personal struggles to professional development, these two take challenges in stride, leaning on one another and their faith to bring them through stronger than ever. It’s a relationship that many dream of, and with the addition of their best friend, Matt Frison, they are nearly unstoppable.

Recently, Deven and Gazzie have taken on a project as musical educators.

“Younique Worship is our teaching business.” Gazzie shares.  “He gives piano and drum lessons and I give voice lessons. Younique Worship is our baby. It’s where Deven and I are able to work together as husband and wife. For example, we’re currently helping out Spirit and Truth with their worship team. He’s over the musicians and I’m over the voices. Those are the type of services aside from lessons that Younique Worship provides.”

And what a service it is. This dynamic duo is one to watch as they grow into their gifts and callings. Just barely in their 20s, they are well on their way to amazing things. I, for one, can’t wait to see what’s in store for them! To follow their projects and music, find them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/4MusicalMinds and www.facebook.com/Youniqueworship
