Destiny Music Group is one of New York’s finest. Their refreshing sound has captured the attention of many as they became one of the most sought after groups in 2016. We've been anticipating more music from them, but in the meantime, we thought we would get to know them a little better.
Let's see what they had to say...
KingdomSoldNYC: At what age did you guys realize your talents?
Antia: I always sang as a kid around the house & the shower was the main stage lol.
I never thought of singing as a possible career until my 20's
Kyle: For as long as I remember, I have been engulfed in music. There were a plethora of people who saw potential in me and invested time, wisdom, and their resources to help me develop musically
Will: Since I was 6 I knew I had a talent for music
Malaika: At about 8yrs old
KingdomSoldNYC: Who are some inspirational artists that you guys look up to?
Antia: There are many amazing inspirational artists out. Right now according to my iTunes playlist I love For King & Country, Verida & Israel Houghton to name a few.
Kyle: Bishop Marvin Winans, Fred I Hammond, and Jason Nelson have all had an enormous impact on me musically.
KingdomSoldNYC: As a group what would you describe your music style?
Kyle: Our style as a team is a very pure contemporary Worship, fused with the modern
Antia: Worship, energetic and fun
KingdomSoldNYC: As challenges arise what key things help maintain a significant focus towards your goals?
Antia: Goals goals goals, having an excellent support system and friends that consistently hold you accountable is such a blessing. Prayer is such a necessity; these conversations with God also help keep me on track in spite of troubles
Malaika: Prayer! Reminding myself that God loves me, knows my truth and that I can come to him with my truth. "God sometimes I feel discouraged and not good enough... etc. " ... "God this is hard, and I don't know the next step to take.., etc."
Asking God for the grace and wisdom to stay focused on the assignment and not caught up on the imaginary limitations that we can sometimes put on him with realizing it. Stay focused and do your part. God is limitless
KingdomSoldNYC: Do you guys have any other creative talents besides being great artists? If so can you mention a few?
Antia: I use to photograph professionally & now I still enjoy taking photos as a hobby. I love to cook as well. My knee can tell when it's about to rain. Does this count?
Will Charles: Besides music, I love film/ screenwriting
Malaika: I do enjoy cooking
KingdomSoldNYC: What message can you give to the audience viewing this article?
Antia: We all have a calling and a purpose, don’t forget that. You're important, and you matter! Stay focused and keep that in mind.
Kyle: God is not slack concerning his promises. Trusting God is not easy, but he will always come through. I am personally watching God stand true to his word, and he's blowing my mind. Keep God in the center and trust his plan. His plans are so better. Destiny Music Group loves you and wishes you a happy holiday season.
