D. Riggins

D. Riggins (born January 24, 1981) is an American Christian producer, singer, and songwriter from Tallahassee, FL. RIGGINS' MUSIC IS EXTRAORDINARY, FRESH, AND INSPIRING!!! When D. Riggins is not working, she enjoys spending time with friends and family, engaging in the community, reading, writing, traveling, playing basketball, and drawing. She finds working with youth intriguing and desires to one day manage a non-profit organization, intended to collaborate with parents for the overall development of young people into Godly men and women. This center will include the Arts (Music, Dance, Theatre), Sports, Career Development, Leadership courses and Biblical study.

"God chose 12 men, and they turned the world upside down. I, too, want to leave a legacy and influence lives by setting the example, just as Jesus did."

Although Dwan prefers a “Blockbuster Night” over the theater any day, she enjoys meeting people and one-on-one conversations: "It’s like we’ve been programmed to rush and stay busy, so much so, we rarely take the time to get to know people," Riggins explains. "I sincerely want to know how a person’s day is going. People matter, they’re important."

When asked about the future: "I can be impatient at times but I have such a wonderful support system. My father, who’s also my Pastor (THE WORD MINISTRY) has taught me how to rely on the Word of God and is really good at just being a dad; both protective, gentle, and funny; yet firm and fair when he needs to be. He takes a lot of pressure off by handling the 'big things.' And then my mom, wow, she’s like my right hand; really takes a load off as well by handling the details. She’s amazing when it comes to organizing or simply easing my frustrations and fears."

When asked what impact she hopes to generate with her music, Riggins replied:

"I'm a worshipper so my hope is that the music God has given me will inspire the world to seek a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ ...where we become immersed/saturated in His love. However, I've been taught that, ultimately, the preaching of the gospel is the key to impacting the world and saving lives. Music, just like anything else has a purpose and unfortunately, if you don't know the purpose of something, you'll abuse it! Well, God has revealed that music was never designed to take the place of the preached Gospel. It is simply a tool for preparing one's heart to receive the only thing that has the power to change a person, GOD'S WORD. I desire to bring glory and attention to Jesus Christ. The last thing I want to do is promote myself just because I hav a gift to sing. Quite frankly, I didn't die for anyone...I refuse to get God's glory!"

"I’m just enjoying every day life, you know? I laugh and smile more than ever because I’m finally content. God is so big and the more I learn about Him, the more I understand the power He’s given me. So, I dream big and live bigger. Yet, with this power comes responsibility and true understanding of one thing: I am nothing without Jesus Christ! God used 12 men to turn the world upside down. I, too, want to leave a legacy and influence lives by setting the example, just as Jesus did. It’s taken some time to trust God but I’ve stepped back and allowed Jesus to be my Lord. And I don’t say that to sound cliché or religious, but I say it, recognizing that because He is Lord, He’s given me the keys, or the Words, of eternal life. Now, I can truly do ALL things through Him…but I’m mindful to do it all for His glory!"

Riggins published her debut album, "My Heart is After You", in 2009.

Spotlight Scripture

And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord (Joshua 24:15).
