Columbus, OH (Wednesday January 16, 2013) – Imagine growing up with the dream of becoming a national recording artist in the gospel music industry, as an artist you dreamt of making music that would positively impact the world. Only to realize that in the “industry” is a jungle of hidden challenges that you were not prepared for.
In reality, living life as a national gospel artist comes with a very high price. It cost you everything that is important to you family, friends, and finances. The “industry” is a machine that you can drive down the right path to success, or it can drive you down the wrong path, which in turn can garnish your money, power, excitement and fame. However, it brings along with it many problems and pitfalls.
Ministry is the motivation, but money is the name of the game. Without money there is no team, and with no team there is no ministry, only much frustration.
LIVING THE PROCESS is about the journey of Isaac Simpson, “The Artist,” who is an award winning national recording artist who is from Columbus, Ohio. He is endeavoring to live his dream and build a ministry while trying to fulfill his purpose and make his mark in the gospel music world.
As a single father he wears many hats a teacher, preacher and worship leader just to name a few. As founder of DP Entertainment, Isaac Simpson is passionately in love with God, but does not always hit the mark. The challenges of balancing his family and career, not to mention personal life is often discouraging to him as he tries to continue moving forward. Keeping ministry unto God a soul focus is how Isaac Simpson is “Living the Process.”
About Isaac Simpson & DP: Three-time Gospel Music Academy Award winner, songwriter, vocalist and producer, Isaac Simpson has been through some rough experiences in his lifetime to say the least.
The epitome of a walking testimony, he is proof of God’s grace and mercy. Being a featured guest on various national television programs as BET’s Bobby Jones Gospel Hour, TBN’s Praise the Lord and 15th Street Live, as well as various FOX Morning news shows, Simpson has encouraged, educated and inspired millions.
When a good deed goes bad—a .22 bullet ricocheted through every major intestine in his body—the internationally known artist, and visionary behind Divine Providence, also known as DP, finds himself fighting for his life. Instead of working on a new music project he was learning how to walk again after waking up from a coma.
His title cut radio single, “The Process”, accompanied by a music video—a strong illustration of his near-death experience—encapsulates the true meaning of God’s grace and mercy, and is a true testament of Simpson’s life.
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 influenced by jazz and hip hop, written, arranged, and produced by Simpson.
Inspired by, “Real Life” experiences THE PROCESS distributed through EMI, is proving to be one of the most superlative musical projects to date.
