On June 1, 2021, Dr. D.L. Gilbert released Destiny, the 12-track, full-length album which has married an eclectic fusion of Contemporary, Traditional, R&B, Rock, Soul, Praise & Worship and Spoken Word into one dynamic Gospel mix. With its inspiring message of destiny reverberating throughout each track, Destiny is more than just entertaining. Dr. D.L. Gilbert's Destiny project is energizing, engaging, and encouraging, all while evangelically challenging its listeners to embrace their purpose, as they dance and bob their heads to the stylistic musical arrangements of the MusicPreacher himself.
This Do Love Gospel Records release introduces itself with an immersive homiletic poetic recital titled, Destiny Awaits, paving the way for Destiny's freshman single, I Have Destiny, which has proven the ability to become a fan favorite of not only Gospel, but Funk and Soul audiences as well, with its acapella intro, then launching into an exciting, uptempo groove that's reminiscent of 1980's funk, complete with analog synths and blistering guitar. The band gives a truly electrifying performance, and Gilbert's own exceptionally spirited vocals are further strengthened by an exciting call and response with the choir. The track, furthermore, features a great spoken word breakdown that places the listener squarely in front of the pulpit.
Each unique track is designed to identify with a specific audience, while all maintaining one central theme: the inspiring message of hope, purpose, and of course, DESTINY! Written and produced by Dr. D.L. Gilbert, Destiny has been resonating with audiences nationwide since its release, through direct downloads via DLGilbert.org, national BDS radio station airplay, as well as Spotify, Pandora, iHeart Radio, YouTube Music, Apple iTunes, and Amazon Music streams worldwide.
