Speaking to the Ghana News Agency, Rev. Annan revealed that the inspiration behind his songs emanated from his personal encounter through his journey in life as well as other people’s life story.

“I am inspired by life circumstances and what the word of God says about life. So for instance when I get a revelation from God and it comes to pass, it gives me the affirmation of God’s works,” he said.

Rev. Annan stressed, “on the point that the word of God is true and life, hence is the utmost key in his ministry. All to be attentive in life and take a critical look at the occurrence in our lives”.

He entreated people to associate themselves to the choir in their various churches and chorale groups as well to sing to the glorification of the Most High.

The Ace Music Composer noted that although he has series of music, he loved to listen to other songs and learn from them.

Rev. Dr. Charles Amarkwei, Minister in charge of Calvary Congregation said singing initiated transformation; “Let us use our talents and emotions to praise the Lord for a better transformation into our lives”.

The programme attracted dignitaries including; Mr Alexander Odoi, Chief Executive Officer, Sky Shipping Agency; Lawyer J. B. K. Gyasi, retired military officer and senior member of Volta River Authority; and Lawyer Angela Akosua Gyasi, Senior Attorney.
