ChiQ and her staff @ DIVAdend Entertaintment, LLC

On Christmas Eve, While everyone was either wrapping presents or out getting last minute gifts, Chiquita Simms was admitted to the hospital that evening. Know one knew she wouldn't be coming home to spend Christmas with her only son, DeSean, family and friends. She died from a brain aneurysm, that ended her life within hours.

ChiQ was a native of New Orleans but move to Atlanta after her home was destroyed by Katrina. She came to Atlanta with her son DeSean, and nothing else but her faith, hopes & dreams. As a Powerful Publicist, ChiQ was very well known for her great spirit, loving heart and a fiesty ambition. She knew what she wanted and would stop at nothing to achieve her goals.
"I am a publicist FOR HIRE..not for HELP!" was known to be a favorite saying.

ChiQ started her company,DIVAdend Entertainment & Public Relations Firm in 1996. Services included, Media, Marketing, Branding ,Event Planning & Management. She provided services for well known comedians, artists, designers,athletes, churches and other organizations.ChiQ Wediings, was an affiliate events company, she formed and managed under the DIVAdend Entertainment umbrella.

Besides raising a son of her own, Simms was a godmother to the four children of her late best friend, who was murdered several years ago by her domestic partner.

"I tell people I have five kids," she says. "I want each of them to know they have a mom to be proud of who loves them. All of my efforts and accomplishment are for them."

Simms was outspoken about domestic violence. When she was with the YWCA, she coordinated a program as part of the Y's Week Without Violence that featured celebrity speakers who had lost relatives to domestic violence.

My prayers go out to your son, Desean and your family & friends. You will be greatly missed.

Please call her sister, Tamara, and let her know that ChiQ is being supported in her absence and if you can help in any kind of way, I'm sure she will be greatful. 404.488.4693
