Songs in this album such as "She Move her feet to dance" is about a girl who was miraculously healed, being able to walk after being paralyzed by bacterial infection in her brain. Unheard Voices is reminder for all to remember the needs of the poor. Beside You was written for his friend who was dying of cancer.

Sands by Lucy L
Sands (Saved for a New Destiny) is another album also making waves across Malaysia. The album is a collection of songs by Penang's songwriter Lucy L. Lucy gathered youths from 7 churches to record her album. The youth team has been travelling across Penang and other parts of Malaysia, making an impact with their distinctive brand of music. This is a youth album with many interesting arrangements and good songs. Look out for Lucy's interesting songs Sold Out and Not for Sale. The album is available in Salvation and Glad Sounds.
A song in the night - by KB Chan
A Song in the Night is a collection of songs by Penang's prolific songwriter KB Chan. Although KB Chan has been a dialysis patient for the last 7 years, he has remained faithful to his calling and continued to write songs over these traumatic years of his life. The production of this album itself is a wonderful testimony of his spirit and love of Jesus. What a testimony of triumph in the midst of adversity!
10 songs in the album were written by KB Chan himself and 2 more songs by his daughter Karen Hughes. The title track "A song in the night" tells us how God can help us through our difficulties. The best and most touching song in the album is "Daddy You're my hero". This is a simple song but it will minister to every father in a very deep way. It certainly carries a strong anointing. "Burning Sweet Incense with My Song" is another song with a powerful message.
