A mixture of gospel, blues, jazz, and soul melt together to make this singer and songwriter’s lyrics and chords stand out among her peers. She has grown from her infatuation of love songs to tackling topics such as the traces of that Mississippi racism that continues to linger in the systems of the US. Destiny Stone is this little girl who grew up to become an old soul in a young woman’s body. Though she has many years left to live, she takes on the lives of those around her and those who have come before her to create her soulful sound. It comes from within. From that upbringing in Mississippi which led her to college in the Carolinas and will take her on to the next destination.
