Ilonka: A Singer's Story of Sexual Abuse and Restoration
- Monday, April 22, 2013
- 3:30 PM–4:30 PM
- Meeter Center Lecture Hall
Join us to hear the story of Ilonka Deaton, South African recording artist and sexual abuse survivor. Ilonka was a pop star in South Africa at age 12. She endured five years of rape and abuse at the hands of her manager, who, when she finally found the strength to fight back, destroyed her career. Her journey led her to the States, and through more agonizing setbacks Ilonka eventually found hope and healing in Jesus. She now speaks and sings around the country at conferences and women’s groups.
Ilonka will also be singing for this event, and there'll be refreshments provided.
