Glenn Packiam

MUSIC runs through Glenn Packiam's veins. Born on Feb 27,1978, this Malaysian's love affair with music began at a relatively young age. Having collectively picked up the guitar, piano and trumpet by the time he was 10, it is hardly surprising that the 25-year-old is currently making waves in the American music scene.

He had made a name for himself in 1992 when he wrote the theme song for an International Church Conference organised by the FGA. Entitled We Arise it has since become a staple in many churches. In 1996, he attended the Oral Roberts University (ORU) in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he studied Theology and Music. He served in the music ministry there and took teams to different cities in the United States as well as Europe, Africa and Malaysia. Upon graduation, he was appointed Associate Music Director of ORU, overseeing the music ministries.

He wrote and recorded his songs on the ORU CD called Sacred Vow. He then joined the New Life Church in Colorado Springs as an Associate Pastor of Worship in 2000. He was recently appointed director of the Worship School there.

Two of Packiam's songs, namely We Lift You Up and You Are are included in Integrity Music latest compilation called More Than Life. Integrity Music is one of the world's leading worship recording label. The album was released in Malaysia a month ago. And that is not all. Packiam has signed up with Integrity to record eight songs to be released in July this year in the United States.
