Robby cummings bio
Robby Cummings is a singer/songwriter and musician who has dedicated his life and music to God since he was a young boy. His dad was saved soon after his birth, and gave up playing music in taverns and honkytonks around the rural community of Walterboro, South Carolina, and instead turned to writing songs for the Lord and playing regularly in churches. At the tender age of 5 years old Robby joined his parents on stage, playing drums, and by age 13, was playing guitar and piano without one lesson. In fact, Robby can play nearly any instrument his picks up, from Native American flute, to mandolin, and even the fiddle.
Robby and Lindsy met at her father’s church and they were married as teenagers. Early in their marriage, they experienced a trauma that caused them to reevaluate their belief system and whether to remain together. They sought the Lord and prayed diligently for forgiveness and renewal, and by the miraculous power of the Holy Spirit, their marriage was restored and is stronger than ever. Lindsy has even written a book about their trials and triumphs. Robby and Lindsy have been married for over 24 years, and they have four wonderful children: Brianna, who is married to her husband Daniel and their grandbaby Ireland, and sons Ethan, Malaki, and Isaiah.
By age 25, Robby made mission trips to Haiti and Guyana, and it was there that he made a commitment to dedicate his life to the music ministry. At a gathering in Hardyville, South Carolina, he was inspired to learn more about his heritage. He is Cherokee on his mother’s side and Lumbee on his father’s. He watched the Kevin Costner documentary, “500 Nations” and since that time, he has been inspired to lead worship music at many Native American Christian events, including, the Cree Nation in northern Quebec, Canada, the Crow Reservation in Montana, the Muckleshoot Reservation in Washington State, and the All Tribes DC gathering on the Mall in Washington DC four years in a row.
In 2019, Robby won the Native American Music Award for best Gospel/Inspirational Recording of the year for his song, “If My People”. Robby has released 4 CD’s, including, “Live from the Cree Nation” and his latest album, “No Greater Love”, which can be found on www.robbycummings.com. His songs tell the story of his deep abiding love for the Creator and of the Savior’s love and sacrifice. Robby and his band minister the heart of the Father to His people through song and the spoken word.
When not leading worship at Wounded Healers, a ministry to the homeless, Robby enjoys time with his family and hunting and fishing in the wilderness of the Smoky Mountains near his home in Cleveland, Tennessee.
