Having shared the stage with artists such as Daryl Coley, Brent Jones, Kim Burrell, Tye Tribbett, Earnest Pugh and Phillip Carter, Washington D.C. native Darnell Moore, prepares to encourage the world to worship with his upcoming CD Accept My Praise, setting the stage with his new single “You Are Holy.
Moore’s heart is to bring people into the presence of the Lord. A gifted musician, producer, vocalist, and the Director of Music at The New Macedonia Baptist Church in Washington, DC, he won the 2015 Gospel Blue MIC Award for Song of the Year for the indie favorite “Here Comes Jesus”.
Since showing an interest and passion for music at a young age, Moore took full advantage of each opportunity given him to spread his musical wings, over the years his love for music increased, and he realized that music ministry was where God had called him.
Who is Darnell Moore?
I am a worshiper, created and designed to give back worship to God. I am a vessel that God has chosen to give a platform to share worship songs about Him. One thing I have grown to learn over these past few years is that I am nothing without God. ”Without God, I would be nothing. I would be like a ship, without a sail.”
Last Year you won Gospel Blue MIC’s Song of the Year for “Here Comes Jesus”. What was that like hearing your name called or better yet the overall experience?
It was such an honor to be recognized by the Gospel Blue Mic Awards team and my peers for my body of work with Here Comes Jesus. As always, I have to give all glory to God. God is the One I sing to, and the One I sing about. Here Comes Jesus was a song I wrote from an experience in my life, and I wanted to share it with the world with the hope of encouraging someone to not give up because Jesus would not fail his promises.
Tell me about your new single “You Are Holy”?
You Are Holy is a song I wrote attempting to express my heart through words about God’s true holiness. While studying the John’s account about heaven in the book of Revelations, he frequently mentioned account of the angels and elders around God’s Throne, declaring the God is holy.
When can we expect a full project or EP?
We are expecting to release our new single to and announce some exciting news about what we have coming up very soon. We are looking to release of new EP by fourth quarter of this year. We are super excited to share our new music to the world.
Congratulations Graduate! – What next’s for Darnell Moore?
First, I am excited to be able to dedicate time that was used to complete my Masters of Management Information Systems, to sharing some music that I have been working on while in school. I plan on continuing to trust God and follow his voice for my life. I have been accepted into the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) to begin my doctoral studies in Management Information Systems. In addition, I plan on returning to a historical black college and university (HBCU) to assist in educating the amazing scholars in my community.
