For Your Love - Patrick Leong

For Your Love is Patrick Leong's debut album. Patrick is already a regular face in the music scene, having sung back up vocals for some of Malaysia'a top secular stars like Siti Nurhaliza and Sheila Majid. He also sang lead vocals for Silenced by Your Love in Wah Lok's album Every Time I Pray.

But things are set to change as Patrick launches his own solo album For Your Love with 10 of his original songs. He brought together a team of fine musicians like Aubrey Suwito, Andy Peterson, John Thomas, Jamie Wilson, Beatrice Teh and Juwita Suwito to produce this album.

The title track For Your Love is a fast praise song with a jazz slant. Produced by Aubrey Suwito himself, you will certainly be caught up with this catchy song. Perhaps the most powerful song in the album is Hear My Prayer. Patrick's beautiful vocal expression of this song will leave you encouraged that God does answer prayers. For Your Love is an album you would not want to miss.



  COOL by Fungates (Clarine Chun and Lim Chee Peng)

Fungates is already well known for their ministry among children. They run Superkids children's programs all over the country. This album is a recording of some of the songs by their Fungates founder Clarine Chun and her fellow worker Lim Chee Peng. Chee Peng produced this album. Many of the songs are good for children's worship.

The title track COOL is an interesting song with a mix of rap and fun. I think it reflects Clarine's ideas for children and how there should be fun in education. Children will love this song. There are other very good songs for children like Love Never fails, You are my friend and Awesome God. Chee Peng performed lead vocals to most of the songs. He also wrote some of the worship songs in the album I love You so and As I worship You O Lord and even a dedication song to Clarine entitled You are the one.

POWER - Live Worship by SIBKL

This is the album I was waiting for after I met Nick Lee who had just returned back from United States to set up a recording studio in Malaysia. He brought back a host of recording experience from United States and this is his first major project in Malaysia. Nick produced the album and arranged all the songs.

The title track Power is a catchy song and reflects the dynamism of SIBKL. SIB is one of the fastest growing churches in Malaysia. Power uses all the modern guitars and arrangement to bring out the dynamic beat in the song. Nick personally wrote this title track. 

The live worship was led by Daniel Tan who also wrote the song Fly like an eagle. Pastor Kay Lee wrote In Spite of Who I am and Cross Over and adds her beautiful voice to these songs. Other original songs were written by SIB members , Osbert Chin, Christopher Chew, Weng Onn and Tabitha Kong.

This is certainly and excellent production.

DIANA WEE - Your Love Remains

Diana Wee is a young song writer from Canaan Lutheran Church, Kajang. Your Love Remains is her debut album with 16 of her own original songs. Many of her songs are worshipful and come real life experiences.

Take it to the Lord was written when she needed God's strength to carry her through a difficult period whilst We Want Revival is her personal cry for revival in God's church. The two wedding songs Every Good Gift and On This day were written for her brother and sister's wedding. This album certainly reflects Diana's ability to write even at a young age.


Favoured Chick – Barbara Tipper

(14 song lyrics written by Barbara Tipper, 9 melodies written by Ng Wah Lok and 5 melodies written by Barbara Tipper)

Favoured Chick is Barbara Tipper's debut album with 14 of her original lyrics. 9 melodies in this album were written by Malaysian songwriter Ng Wah Lok and the balance 5 melodies by Barbara herself. Wah Lok also helped as the Executive Producer for the melodies he composed. The album was produced in Malaysia by Timothy Lee.

The title track Favoured Chick is a very catchy song about how we are very special in God's eyes. The album cover actually shows Barbara dressed as a “favoured chick”. Lighthouse is a very passionate song about God's direction in our lives. God is our lighthouse especially during the stormy periods of our lives. This song has jazzy feel and was performed by Filipino jazz singer Esther Rebano. Immanuel Waltz is a Christmas song about dancing during the birth of Jesus. Barbara crafted the lyrics of this song creatively and Wah Lok has actually put a waltz beat to the melody. Birds and Bees is children's song. The song is about various animals, people and all creation praising God.

Barbara's own melodies have a fun side to them. Her song Don't forget to bring your umbrella is an illustration of our walk in this world. There will always be rain and hence we need God's umbrella. In another of her songs called Alias, she shares about how God gives all of us a new name when we become children of God.

Favoured Chick is a very interesting album with excellent lyrics and melodies. Barbara displays an ability to write interesting, creative and philosophical lyrics.
