The New Tafo SDA Church in Kumasi last weekend witnessed a historic live musical performance by one of Ghana's seasoned gospel music stars, Mark Anim Yirenkyi and his Deliverance Singers.
The musical performance which was organized to launch Mark's latest album attracted hundreds of music lovers who trooped to the church to witness the official launch.
For over 30 minutes, Mark Anim held the audience spellbound with his music and electrifying dance steps.
Mark and his band, Deliverance Singers, performed songs from some of his albums to the excitement and admiration of his fans.

According to a number of Mark's fans, this new album would propel Mark onto the international music scene.

Mark told BEATWAVES that the songs on his latest album were a true reflection of his worshipping heart and desire to encourage people to come close to God, adding that some of the songs on the album had a traditional beat to meet the demand of music lovers.
His music is basically a combination of the traditional gospel rhythms mixed with other danceable gospel tunes, and his creativity is superb.
