Former Tommy Boy Artist, Desmond Pringle, Signs to Kingdom Records

Desmond Pringle’s golden tenor can be heard on some of the finest recordings in recent times. That’s him backing up R. Kelly on “I Believe I Can Fly.” Over the years, he’s shadowed Aretha Franklin, Marvin Sapp and Yolanda Adams on CD, and led “The Place” on Shekinah Glory Ministry’s RIAA certified gold CD, “Live.”  The Dove Award nominated songwriter has composed hits for others and also enjoyed hits of his own ranging from the worship ballad “You Are God” to the inspiring Adult R&B hit, “Arms Wide Open.” Now, after a six-year recording hiatus, Pringle is back on the scene with the uplifting, “Can’t Even Imagine,” the first radio single from his forthcoming Kingdom Records debut CD, “Fidelity.”

The soul-stirring “Can’t Even Imagine” is a fresh addition to the current praise and worship music trend. “Usually songs come to me with lyrics and melodies as if someone is singing on the inside of me,” Pringle says when asked how the song was conceived. “I remember being on a plane enroute to a ministry engagement with my wife, Tanya, and I was asking the Lord to give me a song that would articulate authentic worship. `Can’t Even Imagine’ was what was birthed. Those eight simple words – I can’t even imagine my life without you – express how I really feel about God.”

Pringle’s passion for God has extended to him becoming the pastor of The Watered Garden Fellowship that started as a home Bible study and has since grown into a local church in Inglewood, CA. “Honestly, it wasn’t something that I pursued but rather something I followed,” he explains. “I’ve always been a lover of the Word, I’ve never been the musician/ singer that exits stage left when the preacher gets up to preach. I’ve been aware of the calling to preach since as early as the fifth grade. But I didn’t have pastoral pursuits. I was content to sing but God had another plan and he began to make it clearer in 2008 when our living room Bible study organically grew into a church.”

Aside from his pastoral duties, Pringle is busier than ever. He hits the road in the stage play, “Tell Hell I Ain’t Coming” October 16-21 with dates through upstate New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island. In November, Pringle has a half dozen preaching dates that will take him through the southeastern states. Then, on Friday, November 30th, Pringle and his wife, Tanya, will host their 2nd Annual Empowerment Summit in Charleston, SC. Pringle’s preaching of Biblical principles richly influences his song lyrics. “For me, content is king,” he adds. “Being substantive and not recycling lyrics is of the utmost importance to me.  My greatest inspirations come from the word of God and I want the songs to always reflect that this is what the Bible says and not what Desmond says.”

    I personally know Desmond respectfully know to me as Pastor D. He and his beautiful wife Tanya, are the most loving and down to earth people you want to meet. I’m not surprised at all that God has brought them into this season in their ministry. God is only looking for willing vessels to take His message of Salvation and Redemption to a world that is crying for help. They are God’s chosen. They don’t just talk about God, He shows up in everthing Pringle! To God be the Glory!
