OneVoice is a vital aspect of our ministry, bringing uplifting and penetrating music to every Sunday Celebration and other events. Seasoned musicians accompany inspired vocalists in a wide range of contemporary musical styles and genres. It is normal for folks to be on their feet clapping and dancing when OneVoice is presenting. The power of the music springs from the ministerial aspect of the program which calls for each OneVoice participant to be actively living and deepening spiritual practice. It is important to us that the medium and the message are aligned. Each Sunday Celebration features a number of songs with which everyone can join in and a special Gift of Song presented by OneVoice. From time to time, nationally known guest musicians appear at CSL Asheville as well.
If you are interested in becoming part of OneVoice, please contact David Washington, our Director of Music.
Our Director of Music at CSL Asheville since 2014, David is a composer, singer and keyboardist dedicated to providing music that describes the experience of people aspiring to spiritual wholeness. He emphasizes the potency of showing up in true identity in everyday practical living.
Beginning with piano lessons at age 10, David has played in churches, centers and bands since his early teens and sang in choirs and groups since adolescence. He organized and led a gospel choir in the early 70’s, and provided music for Unity in Huntington (NY) in the 80’s while touring with a New Thought trio The Light Touch. David continued to develop his craft while becoming ordained as a minister with Emissaries of Divine Light and led the music program at several of their Centers.
David continues to write and perform regularly. His primary style is contemporary with a spiritually creative message. Elements of rock, pop, gospel, R&B, reggae, and other styles show up through his songs. In late 2014, he released the Glory Road CD. Early in 2015, he released the Let’s Get Real CD. His newest creation of New Thought sing-alongs, in partnership with OneVoice titled Happiness is My Choice, was released in the summer of 2015.
