Who Am I?
Hi, My name is Carlos Mingeli, and I Am Christian Singer and Songwriter. Am also a Worship Pastor at my local Church who wants keep making music with a purpose. Doesnt it sound cliche? Maybe, but in this world full of musicians Id like my message to be different and connected to the word of God, even if it makes me sell less copies, I cannot compromise the message.
I was born in Dominican Republic, from an early age i was drawn to music, I remember how I used to sing to my grandma's plants playing make believe that they were people. I wrote my first song at age 13 and around that same time something huge happened to me, I gave my life to Christ. For those who arent Christians or understand what it means, it simply means that I realized I was a sinner and needed to repent from my sins in order to have peace with God, then I made God the King of my life. Period. When i was 14 years old both my sister Yeimy and I moved to the Island of Curacao, where we joined a Church and soon after started singing at School and then at Churches and pretty soon at different events around the Island. Long story short in 1999 we released our first album together, titled "Todo Comenzo" (Everything Has Begun) we pretty much became a household name in the Island and performed in one of the biggest concerts of the Year.
The next year we moved again, this time to the United States of America, a little state called Massachusetts. I'd Say we were following God's lead in that He was going to use us here, and what a ride it has been, soon after my Sister got married we kinda stopped singing together and kept growing individually. For example I got a part time job as a Worship Leader at a Church in which I learned so much about God, Music and Worship in general. I recorded my debut solo Album "Personal Songs" which you can get in the music link and I also did four years at a Bible Institute where I got my Diploma in "Advanced Studies in Christian Ministry and Theology".
Nowadays I live in Boston, still Massachusetts. I am Married to my beautiful wife Jeraldina and we have a 2 year old daughter, Catalina. I keep serving at Church as the Worship Pastor and from time to time I sing or preach at different Churches throughout New England. The main message Id like to share with my music is how to live my life in obedience to God, making Him the Lord of my life until His Coming.
Thank you so much for supporting my music and message. I am glad you have visited my site and I hope it has been and will continue to be a blessing for you.
