POP SINGER, SONGWRITER SET TO RELEASE "PEACE 2020"
In these trying times, Destiny Malibu is releasing “Peace 2020” in an effort to bring our world a message of hope, reflection, peace and racial unity.
Filmed in a boxing ring in Malibu, California, “Peace 2020” is a metaphorical story meant to reflect how regardless of our age, race, color or where we are from - we all face battles in life. Especially this year, we all have a personal story of pain to tell. These battles have left many of us scarred, broken and feeling alone.
We have undeniably faced 2020 with our boxing gloves on.
In an eerily apocalyptic battle, our world has been plagued with many unexpected tragic events.
While in mourning over the horrific Australian fires that burned more than 46 million acres, we were left inconsolable with the tragic death of legendary Sports Icon, Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna Bryant and seven others in a nightmarish helicopter crash. As the world cried together, COVID-19, a worldwide pandemic coined as the “invisible enemy”, swept fear throughout every community. Quarantined for months, many of us had no choice but to isolate alone. Our emotions running high, millions were left without jobs, without businesses and unable to attend school campuses. Some of the most important public celebrations of our lives from graduations, weddings, birthdays and even funerals were canceled, postponed, or honored alone. Protests against police brutality prompted by the death of George Floyd, led to further cries for justice across the globe. This global movement has led to both peaceful protests and rioting; to prayer and property destruction, to pleas for equality and an end to systemic racism. Overall chaos in 2020 has shaken Planet Earth. And now… we cry for Peace in 2020.
“Peace 2020” in both song composition and production beg the question, “When there is no one left to call, and you’re losing it all… where do you find your peace?”
When you hit rock bottom, where and who do you turn to?
While the first half of the song is a desperate cry for help to the heavens, the second half of the song is an answer of hope. Ringing with comfort, the lyrics are sung with confidence, “I find my peace in you”.
“You” is a different representation of hope for every individual.
Though our stories, our strengths and our weaknesses are all different, pain is a part of the human experience that shows us in challenging moments, we are not so different from each other after all. We all bleed red. Instead of fighting each other, let’s fight together for freedom, racial unity and world peace❤️
Destiny Malibu kicks off a new touring schedule in 2020, visiting approximately 600,000 teenage students across the United States with over 100 performances. Updated details can be found on www.destinymalibu.com.

ABOUT DESTINY MALIBU: A THOUGHTFUL VOICE
Destiny still remembers the day, at the age of five, she donned headphones that were nearly as big as her head, and stood in front of a microphone for the first time. The studio was already a warm and familiar place. But this was new.
So began the journey of a girl named Destiny, who seems to have been, yes, destined to become a musical artist. Destiny’s job was to recite the pledge of allegiance and sing backup for a 911-tribute song being performed by her mother, a recording artist with a successful Latin band.
That day still resonates in Destiny’s soulful and energetic vocal style. But though her love affair with music began with a performance, it did not end there. Her mother saw to it that Destiny understood music at a fundamental level. As a young teen, Destiny was trained to think in terms of musical and narrative structure when she listened to popular songs. Her natural creative instincts ignited a love affair with song writing, and it is still the core passion that drives her career. Her writing talent was evident early, and she won multiple, consecutive songwriting contests as a high school student.
So it was as a songwriter that Destiny’s professional career would begin. She opted for independent studies in her senior year of high school in order to take a job as a songwriter for Burnett Music Group. As a writer, Destiny developed a hopeful and uplifting style that reflects her caring and deeply empathetic nature. She has a keen ear for music, but perhaps an equally keen sense for the quiet suffering of people around her. This sense of awareness and responsibility has come to inhabit her music.
Perhaps because of her desire to connect with and understand people, Destiny’s tenure as a full-time songwriter would be short-lived. She soon discovered that her true calling was to “tell my own story,” as she puts it, by performing her music and engaging with an audience. And equipped with that insight, Destiny Malibu would become the singer/songwriter she is today.
Since then, Destiny has been writing, recording, and releasing music at a dizzying pace and touring internationally. She performed an original song in a 2018 appearance on American Idol. She has performed at such renowned venues as the House of Blues and Viper Room in LA, as well as high profile festivals such as Texas Rockfest and the Florida Music Festival. She has recently begun to push creative boundaries, experimenting with Spanish-language songs that honor the Latin roots she owes to her mother. She continues to tour and perform from the roof-top stage of her custom-built, 40-foot tour bus. And along the way, she has formed partnerships with organizations that fit with her passion to contribute to the mental health and well-being of others, including an initiative with the American Heart Association to spread awareness of heart disease among young people.
