Glowreeyah Braimah – Miracle Worker

Glowreeyah Braimah - Miracle Worker-Original

Some songs are written and then some songs are given!

June 25th, 2014 (Lagos, Nigeria): ‘Miracle-Worker’ (The Yahweh reprise) was given to me, as I prayed in my ‘Jugsy-Nduks’ room. I lay face-down on the floor because my knees could not bear the weight of my agony that day. This lasted for approximately 8 minutes and 3 seconds. At the very same moment, my 2 year-old niece was fighting for her life in an Intensive Care Unit in the USA. Glowreeyah BraimahDoctors were trying to revive her through Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). Soon after, she slipped into a coma and was in that state for a few weeks. In between the last full-stop and this next sentence, it is best left to the imagination what a harrowing time that my family had to endure during that period. I sang this song every-day because I could not find the words to pray. I promised heaven that I would record and release the song as soon as my niece left the hospital.

Promise kept. Here you have it! Interestingly, my fellow stake-holders in the process (Wilson Joel and Nathaniel Bassey) were also going through several near-similar encounters. For WJ, he also had a family member in hospital. For NB, anytime he turned on the TV etc., all he heard was a confirmation of the lyrics of this song. Today, Fefe (pronounced Fay-fay) is the effervescent joy-ball as she has always been! Her laughter peals like bells ringing. It is almost surreal to believe the awesome transformation. From down and out, to up and about! A few weeks ago, I visited her and when I sang her ‘Miracle-working God’ song to her, the smile she gave me was worth more than a million rainbows! Who would have known that such a trial would birth such a triumph?
