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. His first mainstream project, Right Now produced an anointed infusion of genres creating, setting, and perpetuated an atmosphere conducive to miracles, signs, and wonders. 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 to the nations in February of 2012.
Revealution Ministries is a non-profit, Christian organization founded upon the scripture in Mark 16:15 that tells us to, “Go and preach the good news to everyone in the world.” (CEV) And in case you’re wondering ‘Revealution’ is not a typo. We spelled it that way on purpose. Here’s why: It is our desire and goal to start a revolution by revealing the love and gospel of Christ throughout the world, through music. For this reason we named it, “Revealution Ministries”. Here at Revealution Ministries, it’s very important to us to minister in music, not just perform it.
Revealution Ministries Mission: “Joyfully changing the world by revealing God’s love, mercy and salvation to all through music.”

Life's a lot like jumping out of an airplane with a parachute; You better do this thing right! Our destiny is not to be decided but discovered. What were you born to do? Seek God and He will show you.
A study was done on 95 year olds. They were asked if they could do it all again what would they do differently. They answered: Reflect more, risk more and do more that would live on after they were gone. Don't just exist, live! “Life's but a vapor.” (James 4:14)
