DEWAYNE WOODS
MY LIFE’S LYRIC

Just five years ago, few had heard the name DeWayne Woods. These days, it would be hard to find a gospel music fan that has not heard of this rising musical genius. He moved from obscurity to notoriety on the strength of the mega-hit, “Let Go” from his Verity Records/Quiet Water Entertainment debut Introducing DeWayne Woods & When Singers Meet. The incredible ballad of surrender, heard on radio stations and in choir stands across the nation, became the biggest gospel song of the year in 2007. The tune garnered Woods numerous accolades including 2008 Stellar Awards for New Artist of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, Urban/Inspirational Single/Performance of the Year and Song of the Year (with songwriter P.J. Morton). Woods also received a 2008 GMA Dove Award nomination for New Artist of the Year.
“It was very surreal,” says Woods about the song’s success. “Every artist wants to be accepted and appreciated for their music. So for people to take to ‘Let Go’ and be touched by the song is so humbling. People still call me ‘Mr. Let Go’,” he chuckles.
Since that time Woods has relocated from Chicago to Atlanta and assumed the role of Director of Worship & Arts at Divine Faith Ministries International. “I love being part of the Divine Faith Church Family and it’s so important to me,” Woods says. “As an artist, you are constantly pouring out and it’s great to be poured into. I listen closely to what my pastor preaches and teaches. I also love music ministry because teaching is my passion. I love working and cultivating music ministries because it allows the creative juices inside me to flow.”
He still ministers all over the world and continues to establish himself as a solo artist after having been in the background for years. Prior to his breakout, Woods backed artists like Celine Dion, Kirk Whalum, Kurt Carr and Karen Clark Sheard. The Kansas City, Missouri native, who got his musical education at the Paseo Academy of Fine and Performing Arts, has also served as vocal producer for gospel heavy hitter Byron Cage’s last three projects and has co-produced vocals with his mentor, Donald Lawrence, for such televised music events as the BMI Trailblazer’s Awards.
Woods’ career in gospel music began with a “chance” meeting with John P. Kee. Soon after, he became a member of Kee’s popular gospel ensemble, The New Life Community Choir, singing lead on the group’s hit single “I Surrender” and providing background vocals on Kee’s breakthrough album Show Up.
Lawrence quickly took notice of Woods and invited him to join Donald Lawrence & The Tri-City Singers. DeWayne continues to sing with Lawrence’s ensemble “The Company” and has no intention of stopping. “I love to go out with Donald Lawrence & The Company as much as I can,” says Woods. “I believe that it’s important to serve. I still have a great deal to learn and Donald has already poured so much into me.”
Recently, Woods completed his second Verity Records/Quiet Water Entertainment release, MY LIFE’S LYRIC. The project’s concept centers on each song reflecting a testimony. For DeWayne, each track not only represents a different experience and a different aspect of his life, but most of all, each song expresses another trait of God’s awesome character.
According to DeWayne, this new project is more mature and sophisticated than his debut. He feels that his time in the industry has helped him grow and that the combination of songs is more eclectic than his first CD. But one thing Woods didn’t stray from was his exceptional production team. Well-known producers P.J. Morton, Daniel Weatherspoon and Aaron Lindsey all return and take their respective turns in the producer’s chair as do James Poyser and the production team of Phil and Calvin. He also enlisted his group “When Singers Meet” and a small group of session singers from Chicago to round out the impressive background vocals.
“MY LIFE’S LYRIC is an album full of testimonies of everything I have been through,” says Woods. “Jeremiah 29:11 is my favorite scripture. So to have such a powerful word as part of the foundation for this project, coupled with the opportunity to help shed light on someone’s situation, to me, that’s what it’s all about.”
…God is Exalted…
Long-time fans of gospel music will instantly recognize the CD’s lively lead single, “Living on the Top.” Gospel icon Douglas Miller made this one a hit in 1992, and DeWayne Woods’ rendition is certain to do the same. “I have always been a choirboy and I love the sound of choir music! I was drawn to this song because it speaks to what is being taught even now in churches about understanding our place in God and our positioning in the Kingdom,” explains Woods.
…Your Rod and Your Staff Comfort Me…
On “I Won’t Be Afraid,” Woods’ gift of exhortation is magnified. “This song shows us the dynamics between fear and faith,” says Woods. “We know the scripture that talks about faith being the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen; but fear is the substance of things that we do not hope for, and the evidence of things that we do see,” shares Woods. “If we understand that and know that God has taken care of everything that concerns us, we should know that we have nothing to fear.”
…Having a Good Time…
The upbeat track “Good Times” conjures the vintage soul of Curtis Mayfield, and features Woods’ stunning falsetto vocals. The rhythmic drum cadences and smooth horn rifts are an excellent compliment to the soulful yet inspirational lyrics that Woods delivers about the “good time” we should all have living life with Christ.

He’ll Do Just What He Said…
“God Can” reunites Woods with P.J. Morton and is sure to be another standout worship ballad. It’s a beautifully penned song that DeWayne delivers with strength and pure conviction. “If you believe in letting go and letting God, then you can only do that if you believe that God can,” he says of the track.
…I’ll Be Lost Without You, Lord…
“Lost”, with its calypso-inspired feel, is a catchy worship tune that finds the singer thanking God for His sheer presence and direction. “That song was so much fun to record”, says DeWayne. “The song’s message centers around the simple fact that without God we are truly lost.”
…Hope Has A Way of Turning Its Face To You, Just When You Least Expect It…
“It Might Be Hope” is a powerfully delivered track, and one of Woods’ favorites. For DeWayne, the song is the epitome of Jeremiah 29:11 which states: for I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. “If I am still alive, then there’s hope for my situation,” explains Woods.
…“I Am Not The Same…”
“Positive”, the CD’s final cut, finds the crooner spreading his musical wings on an edgy, rock-inflected tune. It’s an infectious song of independence from negativity and vulnerability. “Positive summarizes everything you’ve heard on this project,” shares Woods. “If you grasp the essence of the testimonies presented in each song, then you understand that you are not the same person and that you have a new life in God.”
MY LIFE’S LYRIC is a skillfully crafted expression from the heart of one of gospel music’s brightest stars. With a new project and more inspiration to share, DeWayne Woods is prepared to captivate the gospel music industry once again. MY LIFE’S LYRIC effortlessly picks up where Introducing DeWayne Woods & When Singers Meet left off.
