Isaac Simpson & Divine Providence
Songwriter, vocalist and producer, Isaac D. Simpson is the visionary behind Divine Providence, also known as DP. Simpson, who comes from a long generation of singers, songwriters and entertainers, has been involved with music since childhood. He began to conduct professional workshops and direct citywide choirs at an early age.
By the time he was twenty-six, he had conducted workshops throughout the U.S. and in the Caribbean Islands, Great Britain and Europe. He has shared the stage with gospel greats, Vicki Winans, James Moore, Marvin Sapp, Kurt Carr and Rance Allen. He graced the stage with Coretta Scott-King, appearing as a special vocalist at a celebration honoring her and appeared on the Bobby Jones Gospel Hour.
Originally from Los Angeles, California, Simpson founded DP in 1998 to give young Christian adults an outlet to share their music with the world. He came up with the name Divine Providence while listening to a sermon by Bishop George “Awesome” Dawson. The name means ‘instantaneous will of God.’ In just one year’s time, the energetic youth chorale from Central Ohio produced an album titled “He Loves Me.” Written, arranged, and produced by Simpson, the project is influenced by jazz and hip hop.
Isaac Simpson is a 3 time Gospel Music Academy Award winner and brought home the national title of Best Overall Artist. Fresh from their recent overseas tour of Italy and Switzerland, Isaac Simpson & DP have completed their second CD entitled “The Process,” which will be released August 9, 2011.
The Process. The highly anticipated sophomore release from international recording artist, Isaac Simpson & Divine Providence reinvents praise for the 21st century. Their multidimensional worship transcends musical genres with relatable lyrics and anointed, innovative musical arrangements. Each track has something for every individual that longs for a deeper and passionate relationship with God. “THE PROCESS,” Simpson says, “will engage the listener to develop a deeper relationship with God and flourish in every area of their life.”
Simpson believes that this generation will be saved through gospel music. “Gospel music is wonderful,” he said. “It has the ability to transcend from generation to generation.” Transcending generations is one goal Simpson shares with DP; the second is helping others bring their lives into focus with their God-given purpose.
