Prison Ministry

Prison ministry is a sentimental part of Sonnie's community work, because of her family experience with corrections. Sonnie has been serving in prison ministry for 10 years, using her gift to bring hope to the incarcerated. She provides musical concerts for inmates throughout the country. During Black History month she and her label mates do a 15 prison tour in Illinois Department of Corrections. Sonnie is often requested as the musical guest by the inmates Christian community, during their annual revival and seminars.

Sonnie works alongside an organization that brings children with incarcerated parents inside to spend the day with their mom or dad. She serves as the musical guest for the 10 Camps hosted in Michigan and some in other states. Sonnie's experience with prison ministry makes her a sought after speaker, musical guest, and spokesperson. Check Out Video

As a recipient of the national program "AngelTree", Sonnie has helped with the media campaign for several years. She has been interviewed by 25 plus radio stations throughout the country sharing her story to raise funds.The month long media campaign has raised over $700,000 for Christmas gifts for kids of incarcerated parents.

Below are a list of prisons Sonnie has had the opportunity to visit and many on more than one occasion. Please pray for our brothers and sisters behind bars. If you would like to sponsor or be a donor for the prison ministry work Sonnie Day is involved with, please donate below.
