Award-winning, Atlanta-based inspirational artist, actor, and designer De’Leon is back with his sophomore album, Life Is… This project continues its partnership with Enon Music Group (EMG) and is distributed through SONY Orchard. The 12-track album is filled with banging urban tracks, heart-wrenching ballads, a house music dance track, and inspirational nuggets that leave you thinking and moving.
Continuing the upward pendulum of his inaugural project “Church Boy Soul,” De’Leon is
excited to share with the world what was birthed during the global pandemic. “Many people shut down out of fear during the COVID-19 pandemic. I chose to use that downtime to really collect my inner thoughts and reflect on this thing we call LIFE. I also wanted to rethink and retool what we see as inspirational music in the 21 st century.”
De’Leon credits his continued success to the personal grooming he experienced from various
industry giants including Ricky Dillard, Dewayne Woods, Vashawn Mitchell, Shirley Caesar,
Byron Cage, Dorothy Norwood, Velmer Watkins, as well as hip hop artists like Dungeon Family
and pop icon Celine Dion.
Life Is… is produced by DLumar, Travis Malloy, and Keddrick Gatson with features from the
late Duranice Pace, Coriology, and the writing talent of Grammy-nominated artist Mykal Kilgore. Both singles “I Got It,” penned by Kilgore and the remake of Bishop Eric McDaniels’ “Keeper” featuring Pace garnered national acclaim during their release.
Life Is… is available now on all streaming platforms. De’Leon is available for all businesses
interested in partnership or media opportunities.
De’Leon Carr, born in Memphis, TN, and raised in Atlanta, GA, is the son of a preacher woman
and public school educator who instilled FAITH, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, NO JUDGEMENT, COMPASSION, and BALANCE all with the word of GOD. De’Leon pursued an education at the esteemed Morehouse College in his hometown of Atlanta, GA. While at Morehouse, De’leon formed Sound Ministry, a group of young adults that had a heart for music ministry with the intent to reach the masses with a non-traditional approach. “Sound Ministry” was afforded the opportunity to minister on many stages such as the Tehillah Music Conference for Bishop Paul Morton, Theresa Hairston’s Heritage Praise & Worship Conference and were often called upon by many youths and young adult conferences around the country.
While ministering with Sound Ministry, De’leon was approached by “The Choir Master” himself, Ricky Dillard, to be a part of his legendary, Stellar Award-winning, Grammy Nominated legion of singers from Chicago affectionately called “NEW G”. De’Leon, being a Choirboy at heart, was ecstatic and faithfully served the New Generation Chorale for 13 years. De’leon is also an actor and has been blessed to star in a principle role in commercials for Chevrolet featuring T.I. and Dale Earnhardt. He has also made several appearances on Tyler Perry’s House of Payne and
Meet the Browns.
