My name is Delfina Ure. I'm an artist, activist, writer, and music teacher from Manhattan Beach, CA. I am the founder and executive director of Keep It Sacred Sacred, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization helping sexual abuse survivors. I am also the founder and lead teacher at Passion is Powerful, a singing and songwriting program for girls. In 2007 I turned down a full-ride scholarship to Pepperdine University and decided to pursue my music career in Hollywood instead. A couple of years later I went from playing at the Coffee Bean in my small town to performing for 1.2 million people in Times Square NYE 2010. Soon after my national debut as a singer, repressed childhood memories of sexual abuse surfaced and I put a hold on my life to figure out what happened to me. Little did I know it would take me 10 years to piece my story together, find my voice again, and "get back out there."
Not all was lost in my search for truth -- despite developing a tumor on my face, getting sued by my abuser, and almost taking my own life, I was able to turn things around when I surrendered my life to Jesus in 2019. I was baptized on my birthday and within months I was completely set free from 60 symptoms of PTSD, the medical mystery on my face vanished, and I won the lawsuit and the right to speak freely about my life.
It's with undisturbed peace and unwavering focus that I have set my eyes on bettering the lives of the people around me. I love getting to share my testimony and music because I believe when people hear what God did for me it strengthens their faith to believe the same is possible for them. It's my personal goal in life to set every survivor free from trauma, empower every little girl to sing boldly and know who she is, and continue to translate my passion for fitness and health into a vehicle for change and positivity in my community.
