Local Woodworker Nominated for Best Songwriter After Orlando’s International Film and Music Festival Voting

PRWeb Monday, 15 April 2019 ()
Out of thousands of submissions, an unknown blue-collar wood worker wrote "What Have I Done," a song that was nominated with 11 other artists for top honors at the prestigious International Film and Music Festival held last month in Orlando.

ORLANDO, Fla. (PRWEB) April 15, 2019

Darrin Charles, a music artist from the New Port Richey Florida Area, first single "What Have I Done" was nominated for a Best Songwriter award among 11 other finalists, following the Film and Music Festival’s voting on March 16th. Originally, Darrin was chosen from thousands of competing entries where he had to compete against a host of other artists, producers, and musicians.

Using lyrics that touch on spiritual themes along with “everyday situations of life”, if he wins at the next level he will take his place among the rarefied air of songwriters who possess that uncommon knack for probing into both secular and spiritual themes. Charles was first recorded in 2003 in a mall recording booth in New Port Richey, Florida. In a time when most new artists are less than 25 years old and living at home, Darrin is over 40 and currently works hard as cabinet maker while providing for his family. The song will be released his within a few months. In a late-night phone call from Joseph A. Camerieri, owner manager of his independent record label, Charles said: I am extremely excited and blessed just to be chosen, then, to be nominated, is amazing and I’m thanking all the judges.”

In his first song “What Have I Done” Darrin asks his audience the vital question almost everyone ponders in their heart, “How could God love such an imperfect being like me?” And how can any of us ever deserve such kindness from the Creator of the Universe. CEO of Independent label David and Goliath Publishing, LLC., an executive producer of the song, discloses, “In my circles, people agree with my analogy that it’s a Spiritual prequel or point of view to the most successful Christian song “I Can Only Imagine” by Mercy Me. I am a huge fan of that song and it brings tears to my eyes all the time as with Darrin’s song too.

“In 2003, when I heard first heard the song I knew Darrin had talented songwriter skills. I asked if I can be the one to release it on his behalf” Mr. Camerieri commented. I hired the best studio I know of in Florida with Jim Beaman as producer and Chief engineer and mixer, recording engineer was Mark Parfitt at Big 3 Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida

“Last few years it’s been heavy trials for Darrin, and this selection and nomination is a huge blessing, a light for Darrin’s path set before him, as Camerieri replies. "First to thank Jesus the Christ, who opened doors and hearts of people to make this song a reality. Thank you to all his band mates and musicians and those judges of International Christian Film and Music Festival who selected our song for the festival. I think all people should listen to it."
