Phelps was part of the Gaither Vocal Band from 1997–2005 and again from 2009–2017. He shared the tenor part with Wes Hampton from 2009–2017. In early 2017, he left the group to focus on his solo career.
As a solo artist, he received 2009 Dove Award nominations for Male Vocalist of the Year and Long Form Video for the Christmas DVD, O Holy Night to add to his many awards and honors. David’s 2012 live concert DVD, David Phelps: Classic, debuted on Billboards’ Music Video Chart at #1 and since its release has received acclaim from throughout both Gospel and secular music genres. The recording has been featured on numerous television networks, including the Public Broadcasting System (PBS).
In 2015, David released the recording, Freedom. The Freedom companion DVD also debuted at #1 on Billboards’ Music Video Chart. Most recently, in April of 2017, The Best of David Phelps: from the Homecoming Series, peaked at #1 on Billboard’s Music Video Sales Chart, topping such popular video releases as The Beatles’ Eight Days A Week and Eric Clapton’s Live In San Diego, as well as Adele’s Live At The Royal Albert Hall. That same week, David’s Freedom video sat in the top 20. In 2017, David released his latest recording, Hymnal.
