Shanti Chapman - Christian Recording Artist

[Free Publicity Blog Post] By
Devine Jamz Gospel Network

Shanti P. Chapman was born in Washington, DC on January 21, 1973. He spent the majority of his pre-adult years living in Charleston, WV. Shanti experienced heartache and disappointment at an early age due to the divorce of his parents at the age of 10. He emotionally spun out of control and began experimenting with drugs and alcohol and became sexually active due the combination of his heartache and not being closely supervised.

At the age of 15, Shanti began crying out to God and asking him that if he was real, to reveal himself to him. Soon after, people began to surround him and teach him about Jesus and Salvation. Shanti accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior and his life was been radically transformed from that moment. In fact, gospel music had a major influence upon him receiving Christ. Shanti explains “The Spirit of God was so strong in the Gospel music that I was listening to that I knew that God was drawing me to be saved and have a relationship with him. From that point on he knew that he wanted to be a gospel musician. His passion for gospel music continued to grow even stronger because of knowing how one can be changed by the power of gospel music.

Shanti completed his bachelor’s degree in Music Administration from the University of Charleston, Charleston, WV in 1996. He furthers his studies at Berklee College of Music in Piano, Voice, and Music Business from 1997-2001. He was an Intern for EMI Gospel, Nashville, TN in the summer of 1999. He completed his Master Degree in Piano Performance from Marshall University, Huntington, WV in 2007. He has served in the US Army as a musician since 2009. He is currently serving in with the 98 Army Band as their principal piano player.

Shanti Chapman founded the group “Manifest Destiny” in 2013 as the result of the strong passion to see the many songs that God has blessed him to write over the years come to life. The purpose of Manifest Destiny is much deeper than music. The intention is to inspire people to identify their Godly purpose and motivate them to follow through by faith and action to see that every promise that God has given is manifested in the present reality.

Shanti Chapman and Manifest Destiny are currently in the production phase of their debut project. From the beginning it was important for Manifest Destiny to ensure that every song that is chosen is inspired by God and can be a mouthpiece for what God is saying to this current generation. The Lord has blessed Manifest Destiny with songs that are truly inspired by the Holy Spirit, relevant, prophetic, and catchy to the ear.

Shanti Chapman and Manifest Destiny’s mission statement is “to break down barriers in people’s minds bringing them closer to the presence of God in order to bring restoration, new direction, and motivation” Their blend of Jazz Harmonies, R&B, and Contemporary Gospel is refreshing to the ear and soothing to the soul.

Shanti Chapman has released the Solo Single “Now is the Season” by Shanti Chapman as his debut to the Gospel Industry. Following releases will be a combination of his solo work, Shanti Chapman & Manifest Destiny, as well as some of his production work with other gospel artists. Each song will be released as the Lord leads.
