Our bass singer and manager, Tom Durham, has been singing gospel music his entire life. Tom has a smooth, low voice that will surely touch your heart when he sings. In 1991 Tom was one of the founding members of the Highest Honor Quartet. In 1999, after Karl Miller and Doug Ashton joined the group they decided to change the name of the group to the New Destiny Quartet. In addition to singing the bass Tom handles the managerial duties for the group which includes booking and a lot of other “stuff”. When Tom is not singing he is the Choir Director and plays the saxophone at his home church, Great Lakes Christian Church in Warren, Michigan. Tom lives in Washington, Michigan with his wife Laura.
Karl Miller is absolutely thrilled and feels blessed to have the opportunity to sing with New Destiny Quartet again. Karl was an original member of the group back in January 2000 and has sang with them for about 7 years total over the past 15 years. His love of singing dates all the way back to elementary school however it was in high school where he expanded his repertoire by participating in all of the school spring musicals. His love of stage has landed him in musicals such as Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (1999), Children of Eden (1999 and 2001), The Scarlet Pimpernel (2002), Ragtime (2003) and Beauty and the Beast (2005) to name a few. He also attended Central Michigan University on a full Scholarship for football where he was a member of two Conference championship teams (1990 and 1994). Karl has been happily married to his wife Angela for 11 years and have 2 boys – Jackson and Danny. Karl is a serving member of Community Christian Church in Sterling Heights, MI.
Singing the baritone for New Destiny is Malachi Tipping. We are sure you are going to be blessed by his smooth and soulful voice. Malachi is 24 years old, lives in Delta,Ohio. Malachi is from a family of 10 children and they all have musical talent! This is Malachi’s first time singing gospel music at this level. He has had many gospel music heroes, but McCray Dove of the Dove Brother’s Quartet has been one of the biggest inspirations affecting his desire to sing Southern Gospel Music. “Every day I’m happy that God has given me another day to share what he has done for me, because at the end of the day I’m just a sinner saved by grace. My favorite bible verse is Philippians 4:13 because every time life sends me a tough situation I remember I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me!” When Malachi is not signing with New Destiny he keeps busy with his family, his wife Aleigha, and their son Owen.
