Berkeley, a fourth-generation Washingtonian, started playing the piano at 9. Her first major job as a pianist was at Walker Mill Baptist Church. She began directing choirs and became the director of the D.C. chapter of the Gospel Music Workshop, part of a national network of musicians who performed and recorded with Cleveland.
Berkeley is the Minister of Music emeritus at the First Baptist Church of Glenarden.
In addition to recording music and serving on the board of the Gospel Music Workshop of America, Berkeley has also published songs in five hymnals, including songs such as "He Has Done Great Things for Me" and "I Will Bless the Lord at All Times."
