DayOne Team Member

BIRTHDAY

What I love most about DayOne is that we truly are a family. Every member of the group is so unbelievably talented, but there are no “diva” attitudes anywhere to be found.

Destiny Rambo McGuire is a rare combination of talent 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, are pioneers in the Southern Gospel world of performers and writers. Her parents, Dony and Reba Rambo-McGuire are certainly trendsetters in Contemporary Christian music. With countless Grammy, Dove, and other awards and nominations, Destiny certainly has a vast legacy to carry on. 

Destiny is certainly no stranger to the stage and platform. She began traveling with her parents as an infant and, even as a toddler, was quick to win the hearts of people with her infectious charm and talent. When she was 2 years old, her brother Israel Anthem was born and by the time he was 18 months old they were singing, dancing, and became an intricate part of their parent’s ministry.

Dony and Reba were determined to ensure their children would be equipped and educated for their callings in life. Destiny has studied intensively music, piano, voice, art, dance, acting and drama.  Along with years of private tutoring, she studied dance at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN, went through extensive vocal and piano training by Jan Williams, Sondra Morton-Chaffin and Jamie Green at the Jan Williams School of Music, and has a Bachelors Degree in Counseling from Destiny Christian College. 

In the last several years Destiny has taken on the realm of musical theater. In this time she has performed in The Child, Godspell, David, and Fear Not Tomorrow, based on the book by Ruth Graham. She has also has worked with Disney Theatrical on the licensing albums of Tarzan, as the voice of Jane, as well as in the ensemble for Mary Poppins. She was also featured as the voice of Channah, in Sight & Sound Theater's show Jonah.

In 2012 Destiny, along with her families group, Rambo McGuire were privileged to win the Dove award for bluegrass album of the year and in December 2013 Destiny released her highly anticipated first solo album, Journal of a Songstress. In 2014 Destiny joined the musical group DayOne that tours the country, providing musical entertainment for prestigious corporate events. Destiny loves the fact that everyone is so hard working and takes so much pride in their performances. Most importantly, the main thing she cherishes is that they all have each other’s backs. No matter what. It’s rare to have a group of entertainers who function as a whole with such grace and patience, but DayOne is the exception. On top of their collective talents, she loves being surrounded by co workers who all have strong roots in their spirituality. Prayer and support are vital to everything they do. Joining the group was one of the best decisions she has ever made and Destiny looking forward to all that they will accomplish together in years to come!

Today, Destiny is doing exactly what she was called and trained to do. She is an in-demand singer, worship leader, writer, artist, session vocalist, actress and choreographer. 

"I like to think of myself as an octopus." Destiny Says. "Keeping my hands involved in as many aspects of the arts as I can, and building bridges between them."
