In Endless Praise
Douglas cannot be compared to any other Christian Contemporary Musician or Gospel artist in the market today because of his fresh, original sound, though he has been influenced by songwriters like Chris Tomlin and Israel Houghton. Douglas's fans are drawn to his music because of the strength of his vocals and powerful lyrics. Through his original music, Douglas helps you feel and experience awesome presence and power of the Almighty. In concert Douglas is completely at home. He relates to his audience by sharing his life experiences and amusing anecdotes about growing up in a Christian household. He also brings a message of faith and hope in Christ, by interweaving his personal testimony and scriptural references. Douglas has been ministering in song since the age of ten, both internationally and here in the United States. His love for music caused him to work in several areas. While in Jamaica, Douglas managed Light of Life Ministries, co-founded and Portmore Vision Gospel Choir (PVGC), was lead vocalist of Faith Gospel Band and an ardent member of the Sons and Daughters Ministries. Since his migration to the United States in 1994, he has served as choir director and Music Director at several churches in the New York and New England area and is currently the Minister of Music at Gateway Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. His debut album, ...In Endless Praise, contains nine (9) original songs and one (1) contemporary arrangement of a timeless classic. These songs will minister to the mind and soul of the listener. "As a youngster, I attended a lot of concerts and I was so fascinated by the musicians that I could always be found at the foot of the stage trying to soak up everything," says Douglas, remembering his childhood days. Since then, God has blessed him and enabled him to turn his desires into a reality. Douglas R. Bramwell migrated from Jamaica to New York City over fifteen years ago. New York was his watering ground for that which was planted in him in Jamaica. He continued in the ministry, serving as the Director of Youth Ministries, Director of Music, Praise and Worship Leader, implementing Praise Teams and Choirs and administering music workshops. Now in South Florida, much fruit is evident in Douglas' ministry and can be seen at Gateway Church where he serves as Minister of Music and ministers throughout the United States spreading the gospel through song. "Douglas R. Bramwell is a gifted musical oracle of God. Experiencing his ministry of praise and worship is uniquely inspiring, spiritually stimulating, and holistically engaging," shares Rev. Dr. Preston Williams II, Regional Director of Logos Global Network (LGN) for the State of Florida, visionary and church leader. As a fervent worshiper, Douglas R. Bramwell meditates on the Word of God and is always seeking God's direction for his life. He believes that on this continued journey, he needs to maintain an attitude of holiness and continued praise. These beliefs are reflected in his upcoming project, "In Endless Praise," a long anticipated Praise and Worship album which has a colossal of music styles, such as Soothing Acoustic, Reggae, R & B, Gospelypso and Contemporary Christian; all resonant and reverberating sounds, lifting up the name of Jesus. All through Douglas' life he has remained unchanged: 'I believe that at all times I am in the presence of the Almighty God because He is Omni-present (ever- present). And I, like the Psalmist David, will enter into His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise. But, don't get me wrong! I don't wait until I get to the sanctuary to worship because I am always in worship. I don't know any other way to be. And when I worship I give my all because in my worship (singing, composing, writing or playing) it should always win a soul for the Lord and His kingdom.' Douglas R. Bramwell thanks the Lord for what He has done, is doing and marvels at the great things God has in store for him and his family. He is blessed with his beautiful wife Jackie and gorgeous daughter Dori-Ann Lorraine.
