David Jeremiah is a Grammy-nominated songwriter with three top ten hits (You Changed My Life, You Must Have Known, Must Be You) who spent most of his career writing for the gospel and contemporary Christian markets.
“I went through some pretty tough personal times and started to write my thoughts and feelings into songs,” David says. “As it turns out, people liked them.” David’s songs tell heartfelt stories wrapped with deep human emotions in sometimes humorous packages. Actress and philanthropist Betty White says, “David’s humor and the way he puts words together in his songs is life changing. His voice is like pure gold.”
David grew up in the northeast the son of a telephone worker and a Capitol Records 50’s recording artist. At the age of 12, David and his mother assembled their family into a traveling singing group and played at various locations throughout the northeast. “The highlight of my young career was when Maria Von Trapp came up from the audience, buried my head in her cavernous bosom and told the audience (with a thick Austrian accent) ‘Dis vun ees my favorite.’ “ David recalls. He was also the favorite entertainer for Kennedy family functions on Cape Cod and was the featured guest singer / guitar player for two PBS shows (Club 44 and Boston Today).
David is a Hopkinton native who spent the last 35 years in southern California making a living as a voiceover artist, lending his talents to television and radio commercials such as Sears, Petco, eHarmony, U.S. Steel, and narrating documentaries for The History Channel, The National Geographic Channel, NBC and The Discovery Channel. Children will recognize David as the voice of “Grandpa” on Disney’s Higglytown Heroes and video game enthusiasts will recognize his voice from the Star Wars video game series, Grim Fandango, and motion pictures such as Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth II (Rise of the Witch King) and Adventures in Odyssey: The Last Days of Eugene Meltsner.
