On Sunday, January 30, 2021 " Gina Carey" won the " Bright Star Award" for her #1 hit Single, My Destiny" a song which she wrote and produced in 2020. In her category, she competed against many talented independent soul artists.
in 2015, Gina took a pause from her music career to start her own film company, " Gina Carey Films". After a successful run in the independent film world and the launching of serval media-based companies, Gina realized that she missed recording music. But, after being gone from the independent soul scene for so long, she noticed that the independent music scene had changed drastically. Being unsure that her sound would even be accepted in this new era, she held reservations about jumping back into the music scene once more. Little did she know that after being on hiatus, she would develop a fresh and new perspective on life and love. Meeting her soulmate, who happens to be the percussionist heard on " my Destiny", Andrew Sedman, gave her the inspiration to write again.
Andrew was a long time fan of Gina's music and had been playing her music for years on his radio show before formally meeting Gina. He encouraged her to record again. Later she found the inspiration to write a love song to " Andrew" after the two fell in love. Unbeknownst to both Gina and Andrew, "My Destiny" would rise to the top of several UK charts and touch the hearts of many listeners worldwide.
Gina refers to The sound of " My Destiny", as a world sound because every live instrument played on that track came from musicians from around the globe. Isreal. Spain, Africa, The UK, Italy, and America. " My Destiny" was written and produced by Gina Carey and mixed and mastered by Brian Porter of www.StudioCmuzic.com
Gina is grateful to God for blessing her with the ability to write love songs that challenge listeners to love in a much deeper and meaningful way. She is also grateful for all the DJ's who continued to support her music. She was blessed to have JM Soul break her single into the UK market and from there, it took off. Many promoters and DJ's got behind to song and pushed it right straight to the top of numerous radio charts in both the UK and Brazil.
