Del Delker is an American contralto sacred music female vocalist who has sung on the Voice of Prophecy radio ministry since 1947.

Delker has recorded over forty albums for Chapel Records since the early 1950s. Among the songs she is best known for are "The Love of God", "Ten Thousand Angels", and "The Night Watch". In addition to her scores of recordings in English, she has also recorded several gospel albums in Spanish and Portuguese, as well as religious music for children.

Delker has toured the world with Voice of Prophecy revivals and performed in many nations, often singing Christian hymns in the native languages.

She was a good friend of composer Hugh Martin who at one point worked as her piano accompanist and later penned a new version of his Christmas classic Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas entitled "Have Yourself A Blessed Little Christmas" which Delker recorded in 1999. In 2002, she released her autobiography "Del Delker: Her Story" cowritten by Ken Wade and published by Pacific Press.
