Please help me welcome anointed psalmist Dana Hemphill to the recording industry! Mere words fail to describe the grace and sincere anointing that rests on this psalmist and worshipper.
Dana’s journey of faith included embarking on a cross country journey in obedience to God. Leaving family and familiarity behind in Kansas; Hemphill’s journey of faith has taken her full circle.
As cumbersome as life’s low points may be, high points like marrying the love of her life (Lewis) and the birth of their daughter have made her journey of faith worth the while.
It should come as no surprise that Dana Hemphill is now a recording artist. She got her start recording with the C.O.G.I.C. National Sunshine Band (1992) and in her professional career has ministered with top gospel artists.
Steps of faith
Since coming to Texas, Hemphill has increased her visibility on stage and in theatre. Her latest appearances on stage include performances in “The Replacement Wife” alongside Tommy Ford (Martin) and iconic R&B singer Shirley Murdock. Earlier this year, Hemphill took the stage with co-stars Terri J. Vaughn and Christian Keyes in the critically acclaimed smash “Just Like Yo Daddy”. Hemphill has also ministered on stage with the likes of Pastor John P. Kee, Pastor Kim Burrell, Bishop Rance Allen, Dr. Dorinda Clark-Cole, Fred Hammond, David and Tamela Mann and most recently with Myron Butler.
I shall live and not die…
The plans of the Lord are perfect and complete. Hemphill intimated that though her journey is replete with challenging moments, her faith continues to grow. She is now ready to share her declaration with the world, telling of the goodness of the Lord. Whether ministering on stage or leading worship at the Koinonia Christian Church, Hemphill’s ‘offering’ reaches the Heavens. Hemphill’s scriptural reference and declaration are derived from Psalm 118:17 and the she has a mighty declaration for the people of God.
“I Will Declare”, Hemphill’s debut project includes music, production and guest appearances by Daniel Weatherspoon, Myron Butler and American Idol finalist George Huff. On this project, Hemphill expresses the beatings of her heart on this project that will reach the worshipper deep inside each listener. Hemphill’s music is easily described as ‘relationship music’ that will place listeners in a true posture of worship lasting the entire length of the project.
The album’s first single “My Offering” is written by media man on the rise and fellow artist Kenneth Mosley (We Got Next).
Let’s talk about it!
When asked, Dana shared her heart’s desire in regard to her upcoming release:
"My offering, the single, speaks the sentiments of my heart. I owe God my everything and will present my life and being as an offering unto him. I want listeners to be able to receive a word of restoration and healing to ignite the fire they once had for God! For the unbeliever, I pray that it is used as an instrument to direct them to real relationship with Christ."
-Michael Weatherspoon, CEO of SpoonFed Productions
"Dana is an extraordinary talent who has a heart to match. Her upcoming album will be a blessing to all that hears it."
-Myron Butler, Grammy/Stellar Winning Producer, Songwriter and Artist
"Dana Hemphill is one of the freshest voices I've had the opportunity to work with. She possesses a distinct anointing that is effective and refreshing!"
