It was not related, but on the same day that I realised someone had done a search on Google for “O I will praise you all day long”, I found the website of Pastor Ng Wah Lok from Tabernacle Music. Pastor Ng has a vision – that Malaysian churches should have their own identity and use their music in worship.
I can identify very much with his feelings – it is next to impossible for us to make a living from our music. I could see what happened to Ho Yeow Sun when she went secular (and western), and the temptation for me to do so is also very strong (very, very strong).
I have sent two CDs to him. I wish I had paid more attention to the production and be more selective about the pieces in the album. I know the timing is God’s, but I should have paid more attention to Him and did a better job!
