Lorraine is the founder of University Gospel Choir of the Year (UGCY) in the UK and more recently, in Ghana.

The fast growth and scale of the UGCY network of gospel choirs fueled Lorraine to cofound UV Talent, a music talent booking agency, which supplies gospel choirs, backing vocalists, musicians and event professionals to TV shows and commercials, corporate events, weddings, live shows and music recordings. UV Talent's most notable clients include: X factor, The Voice, Britain’s Got Talent, BBC Proms and Mariah Carey. UV Talent booking agency currently manages international artist Muyiwa.
Lastly, Lorraine is the CEO and Co-Founder of VOCSTA, a University of Oxford spin-out and investor backed music tech Start Up that leverages the power of social networks to expose and fund extraordinary talents.
Lorraine is a passionate advocate for social change through her role as a One Young World Ambassador and all of her endeavors are centered and focused on “leaving no one behind” and providing those with an ability, an opportunity.
In recognition of her achievements, Lorraine has been named a Black British Business Award Rising Star, a Ghanaian UK based achievement (GUBA) Community Champion and a Future of Ghana 30 under 30 Pioneer. Most recently, Lorraine was named a Rising Star in the 2018 Powerlist of UK's most influential people of African or African Caribbean Heritage and was invited to Buckingham Palace to meet the Queen, Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall in February 2018.
