He disclosed that the release of the song ‘You Are Great’ was “with the hope that it would be a blessing to people”.

Hear him:

“Sometimes, I sit and ask myself questions. I keep trying to find the right answers to them. I ask myself questions about the existence of man. I ask myself how creation, sun, birds, and sea came about. Everything is just perfect. Time and season come and go without failing.

“I have asked myself questions about miracles. You see someone who had a problem and the problem was solved, just because he called upon Jesus.

“I wondered about all these mysteries. But the one that makes me wonder the most is God, who created heaven and earth, can we tell who created Him? Okay, that question can run anybody mad. So, for me, I felt that God who we can’t tell who created must be feared.

“He is just way too much for us to comprehend, and that is how You Are Great came about. Most prophets of old wrote about Him, but there is much more about Him that a human being can describe.”
