Sade begin job searching at a very young age of 12 (because she never wanted for any reason to be a burden to anyone). Her first job was at Dominos pizza door hanging not long after she got promoted to working in the store as a cashier and often times making pizza. She eventually realized that she wanted more and moved on to working at a Day Care Center in Willingboro, NJ although only for a short.

Sade had a very special bond with her sister Samone the two were insuperable. Equally sharing that bond with her brother Ronald who shared the same birthday 5 years apart often referring to each other as twins, while a very unique playful bond with her little brother Jason.
Sade’ started going to church at the tender age of 3 and was baptized at the age of ten. Sade loved the Lord and loved praise dancing and singing. Faithfully attending New Life Baptist Church Sade’ joined the Eric Wallace Lil Saints choir. Her favorite song was For Every Mountain, which often caused a loving playful debate with the other praise team members and the main question would always be “Sade’ why do we have to dance to this song all the time.” Sade would kindly reply because I said so, besides we’re dancing for the LORD (while gently ushering each member into their respective places).
Sade was a very vibrant young lady full of life with the biggest heart imaginable, even as a child. She loved to love and when she did she loved hard. She was the life of the party with her singing, dancing, and funny story telling. (Often referred to as the Karaoke Queen.
