Inspiring…Powerful…Anointed…are a few words that describe the ministry of Demetrius West.
Demetrius West began his gospel music career over a decade ago. After seeing the directing abilities of his great-grandmother, he began a passion for gospel music. With the inspiration of many teachers that have helped him along the way, it was no surprise that Demetrius would develop leadership and euphonious musical talents with speed. Since 2004, West has committed himself to the advancement of the kingdom and has assisted with many choirs, groups, soloist, and musicians. He has travelled the length and breadth of the United States of America conducting workshops and seminars to help other ministries perfect their gifts and talents. West has worked with and shared the stage with many Gospel and Christian artist such as: Kirk Franklin, Marvin Sapp, Chris Tomlin, Byron Cage and Bishop William Murphy to name a few.
Demetrius released his new critically acclaimed album Jesus Promoter in 2015 featuring “God of Everything” with the award winning Earnest Pugh; who lends his vocal ability on the track. West put together a 40-voice choir named Jesus Promoters to accompany him on this effort.
Since the inceptions of Demetrius West and Jesus Promoters (JP), they have managed to become crowd pleaser to choir enthusiast alike. In August of 2017, Demetrius West and JP inked a record deal with Blacksmoke Music Worldwide, spear-headed by gospel icon and hit-maker, Kerry Douglas. Their new album, “ChoirOlogy” is slated to be released summer 2018.
Demetrius is currently the Minister of Music and Arts and faithful member of the Westside Missionary Baptist Church where Michael O. Bryant is Pastor in Indianapolis, IN. He is married to the lovely Shalette West and they have one beautiful daughter, Zanobia Denise.
