A native of Birmingham, AL, now residing in Nashville, TN. Denita Gibbs knew that she was called to be a singer at the age of seven. Raised in a home with praying parents, she learned that life is all about worshipping God. Denita earned national recognition as a finalist in the Vickie Winans Rising Star Talent Search, sponsored by Chrysler. Soon doors of opportunity began to swing open, and in 2004 she released her first album, entitled “Worthy”. In 2011, she formally signed with Audiostate 55 Entertainment Company for the release of her second album, but she is now an independent artist. Her voice has led her to various arenas of ministry and opening performances for many Gospel artists.
In 2014, she was No. 14 on the Billboard gospel album chart with her August release entitled "Without You." This was a contemporary urban inspirational album. She has received the following awards: 2014 Alabama People’s Choice Music Award “Female Vocalist of the Year” and the 2014 Alabama People’s Choice Music Award “Song of the Year”. In 2016, Denita released her latest single, "Keep Holding On". The bouncy mid-tempo track is a good evidence of Gibbs’ ability to produce music that stays on the cutting edge of contemporary gospel music.
Denita knows the importance of not only ministering on the road, but also faithfully serving in the church. Denita was a faithful member and formally served as a Praise and Worship leader appointed by the pastorate of the late Bishop Heron Johnson at her home church the Faith Apostolic Church (PAW,Inc.) in Birmingham, AL. She is now serving faithfully as a member at the Greater Christ Temple Church (PAW, Inc.) in Nashville, TN under the great leadership of Bishop Sherman Merritt. With six siblings, she knows and embraces the importance of family, and effective mentorship. When Denita is not on the road, she is a devoted wife to her wonderful husband, Ron and mother to her beautiful daughter, Leah.
Denita’s unique style and high definition of praise and worship ushers audiences directly into the presence of God. Psalmist, songwriter and producer Gibb’s has penned music that has touched the heart of God and the soul of man. Her songs are birthed through prayer and are expressions of her personal testimony of God’s power. Her favorite phrase is “To God be the Glory”, and giving him the glory is exactly what Denita aims to do. There is an unmistakable, tangible presence of God that fills the room every time she ministers.
“Worship is my life.” My passion is to use my music to lift up the name of Jesus and lead others to see, love and worship Him.” I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul makes its boast in the Lord; let the humble hear and be glad. Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together! Psalm 34:1–3
