Biography

Chester D. T. Baldwin
is a native of Liberty, Texas a small rural community 45 miles east of Houston. He is the 5th of five children and grew up in home where there was plenty of singing and praising God. When he was about 5 years old, his mother, Gussie, bought a piano and as his testimony song states (The Lord Made Me For Song) “when no one in the family could even play.” But God knew that Gussie’s little baby boy would need that piano one day. He is the father of three sons, Cedric Darnell, Cordale Douglass, and Christian Domineke. He also has two grandchildren, Chase Douglass and Cianna Dion.

Chester began his formal music training with Valencia Donatto, Carolyn Jefferson, and finally under the tutelage of Martha Ford Osagie. All of these teachers noted that he possessed a “supernatural” gift and anointing for God’s music and his ministry and pushed him to pursue his love.

Chester became organist at the historic Trinity Valley Baptist Church at age 12 and its minister of music when he was only 15, leading the adult and youth choirs; ages 5 -85. He graduated with honors from high school, winning awards in music, talent shows and jazz band. He attended the University of Texas and became director for the college gospel choir, Innervisions of Blackness, and was an integral part of the university’s choral program particularly, the Varsity Singers.

Making Austin his home, Chester became the office administrator for a group of primary doctors. He managed their offices for 12 years then heeded God’s call to full time music ministry.
