Writings on the Walls is the latest album produced by City Harvest Church (CHC). This album is essentially a sampler of the latest songs, majority of which are written by KC Gan and David Yem, Creative and Music Directors of CHC. The tunes found in this album sound the heartbeat of CHC. The main focus of WOTW is to present heartfelt melodies that carry the redemption message of Christ.
WOTW features different styles and genre from CHC’s previous albums, such as ‘Your Generation’ and ‘Beautiful’, crafted and styled with evergreen talents in mind—Annabel Soh, Alison Yap and Calvin Ho.
For Gan, who has written numerous songs for local productions, musicals, films and the pop industry, it is a privilege to pen the love of God down in songs that enable people to be drawn closer to God.
One particular track on the album that tugs at the heartstring is ‘Because of You’. This song is the especially personal to Gan, as it symbolizes the 20 years he has been a believer of Christ, reminding him of God’s unfailing grace, love and forgiveness.
There is a simple, hymn-like track in the album entitled ‘For Janelle’. Janelle is the 4 year old daughter of a personal friend of Gan and Yem, who is diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. This song is dedicated to the brave girl who is battling for her life, telling her that God is holding her in His hand, just like how He hung the stars and carried the cross. It’s a song of comfort and assurance of the love of God.
