Gospel/worship artist Todd Dulaney is noted for his smooth classic soul delivery and contemporary arranging and songwriting styles. After singing backup for Smokie Norful and others, he released his debut album, Pulling Me Through, in 2013. He went on to top the Billboard gospel albums chart with both 2016’s A Worshipper’s Heart and 2018’s Your Great Name. Dulaney’s fifth full-length, Anthems & Glory, relied heavily on scripture for its message.
Born and raised in Maywood, Illinois, and singing from a young age, Dulaney spent much of his youth aspiring to a career in baseball, eventually playing for Wabash Valley College in Mount Carmel, Illinois. From college, he was drafted by MLB’s New York Mets in 2002 and spent five (non-consecutive) years playing professional minor-league baseball. During that span, he continued to devote energies to ministry and singing. He ultimately accepted an invitation to tour with Grammy-winning gospel artist Smokie Norful as a backup singer, and built a performance résumé working with other artists including but not limited to Fred Hammond, Donnie McClurkin, and Michelle Williams.
