His desire to see a rise in the mental health of his listeners as a result of the global economic meltdown which also has contributed to the decrease in people’s relationship with God is a great inspiration for this new Album.

The songs on the album “Hymns and Worship” were carefully selected and re-arranged to suite its purpose.”
