Profile Bio Text
Della Reese (born July 6, 1931) is an American actress, singer, game show panelist of the 1970s and ordained minister. She started her career in the 1950s as a gospel, pop and jazz singer, scoring a hit with her 1959 single "Don`t You Know". She subsequently became an actress, best known as playing Tess, the leading role on the television show Touched by an Angel. In the late 1960s, she hosted her own talk show, Della, which ran for 297 performances. Today, she is an ordained New Thought minister in the Understanding Principles for Better Living Church in Los Angeles, California. Reese famously had an early brush with death when she accidentally walked into a plate glass door in her home. Sliced so badly by the broken glass, she reportedly required one thousand stitches to close her wounds. She lost much blood, and later said she had a "near death" experience in which she saw her mother. In 1979, after taping a guest spot for The Tonight Show, she suffered a nearly fatal brain aneurysm, but made a full recovery after two operations by noted neurosurgeon Dr. Charles Drake at University Hospital in London, Ontario. In 1983, she married Franklin Thomas Lett, Jr., a concert producer and writer. They have four adult children: Dr. James Barger, Deloreese Owens, Franklin Lett III, and Dominique Lett-Wirtschafter. In 2002, Reese announced on Larry King Live that she has type-2 diabetes. She is a spokeswoman for the American Diabetes Association, traveling around the United States to raise awareness about the disorder. In 2005, Reese was honored by Oprah Winfrey at her Legends Ball ceremony along with 25 other African-American women. Reese is an ordained minister and currently serves as the senior minister and founder of the Understanding Principles for Better Living Church, an independent "Christian New Thought" congregation, which currently meets in Inglewood, California. In her ministerial work, she is known as the Rev. Dr. Della Reese Lett. Reese is godmother to the child of Touched by an Angel co-star, Roma Downey. Reese began February 2009 by giving the invocation at The State of The Black Union, hosted by Tavis Smiley.
