How Kevin Downswell Became Gospel’s Leading Man


If the word hot can be ascribed to a Gospel artiste, that artiste is Kevin Downswell.

Born in Westmoreland Jamaica and grown across four parishes on the island, as a young man Downswell had great hopes of becoming a medical doctor and was well on his way to achieving that objective when he found his true calling.

The year was 2003 and young Kevin a student at University of the West Indies was enrolled in a Bio Chemistry Degree programme.

Kevin entered and won the JCDC’s annual Gospel song competition that year and soon after emerged a recording artiste.

In 2005, just two years later, not only was Downswell an accomplished artiste in the Gospel arena but he was also an ordained Evangelist.

Though he was able finish the degree in Bio Chemistry that same year, all hopes of becoming a MD sunk.

Kevin Downswell became a full-fledged music ministry who is now the hottest name in Gospel.
