Destiny Rambo McGuire Bio


006__MG_5097Destiny Rambo McGuire is a rare combination of talent and training with a dash of unpredictable, improvisational genius. In other words… she often leaps from the boat of tradition and dances on the water!

Destiny has an exceptionally rich heritage of music and ministry. Her grandparents, Buck and Dottie Rambo, were pioneers in the southern Gospel music world of performers and writers with their legendary singing group The Rambos. Her parents, Grammy and Dove award winners, Dony McGuire and Reba Rambo-McGuire, were certainly trendsetters in contemporary Christian music.

Journal of a Songstress, Destiny’s first full-length recording project, was recently completed. Destiny envisioned it as a warm handshake, a look in the eyes, a smile with a “Hi, I’m Destiny.’” This is who she is: her story, the journal of her life. Destiny is a remarkable wordsmith and has a passion for sharing story. The long awaited solo début features nine original songs and, paying homage to her musical heritage, it includes several chosen gems written by her legendary grandmother, her mother and father, and grandfather Cornelius “Mac” McGuire.

Destiny is no stranger to the stage and platform. She and her brother, Israel Anthem, began traveling with their parents as infants and, even as toddlers, were quick to win the hearts of people with their infectious charm and talent. They became an intricate part of their parents’ ministry by singing, playing instruments and dancing.

Dony McGuire and Reba Rambo-McGuire were determined to ensure their children would be equipped and educated for their callings in life. Destiny has intensively studied music, piano, voice, art, and drama. Along with years of private tutoring, she studied dance at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN, and has a Bachelors in Christian Counseling from Destiny Christian College.

Destiny currently travels with her parents’ group, Rambo McGuire. In 2011 Rambo McGuire recorded a Dove award-winning project (Best Bluegrass Album Of The Year), Grassroots Rambos, featuring the timeless songs of Dottie Rambo.

She also travels with the renowned musical group Day One and sings with them for large corporate events such as Amway Conventions.

Recently, Destiny has taken on the realm of musical theater. She was featured on the Disney soundtrack as the voice of ‘Jane” on the re-release of Phil Collin’s Tarzan the Musical, as well as in the role of Channah in Sight & Sound Theatre’s show Jonah.

She has performed in productions of The Child, Godspell, David, Fear Not Tomorrow based on the book by Ruth Graham, and The Face Of God.

Today, Destiny is doing exactly what she was called and trained to do. She has a passion for leading and speaking about Praise and Worship for various worship and youth conferences. She is an in-demand singer, writer, artist, session singer, actress, and choreographer.

“I like to think of myself as an octopus,” Destiny says. “I love keeping my hands involved in as many of the aspects of the arts as I can and building bridges between them.”
